About Marilyn

Marilyn Orr is a Professional Certified Coach credentialed by the International Coach Federation. She is a lively, skilled and wise coach who thoroughly enjoys connecting deeply with clients in order to facilitate their growth and excellence. With many years of experience counseling, coaching, training and teaching she has the ability to listen deeply, encourage profoundly and challenge appropriately. She sees strengths, potential and gifts in clients often before they can see it in themselves and holds the space for them while they grow in to it. 

The decision to create Luv Life Coaching with its Partnership Coaching Programs was fueled by having experienced the pain that unhealthy marriages caused in my own life. Today I’m enjoying a healthy, committed marriage where the skills I coach on successfully serve my own partnership daily.

Practicing what I preach is important to me in all of my endeavors. After publishing a book on resiliency, titled, How Absorbent Are Your Shocks?, I had a series of personal events that fervently tested my own resiliency skills. Recognizing the unfortunate coincidence, I have emphatically decided that my next book will focus on something much more relaxing and fun such as, vacations in the Greek Isles! {*Insert infectious jovial laugh here.} 

In addition to being a highly effective coach, I’m also a driven, highly intuitive woman whose wisdom shows up in the perceptive questions I dive into with my clients. I have an infectious enthusiasm for connecting with people in authentic and meaningful conversations that leave all of us inspired. If you would like to work with me Reach Out today!

Professional Background

My background in counseling and organizational health influenced my decision to become a certified Executive and Leadership Coach in 2005. For the past twelve years I have thoroughly enjoyed supporting the growth and transformation of thousands of individuals and a large number of businesses across the United States and Canada. You can visit Luv Life Coaching's sister company Capacity Building Coaching for more information.

Shortly after beginning my coaching career, my need to build community (along with some determination and perseverance) led me to found a local International Coaching Federation chapter where I was living at the time in Eastern Canada. This new space provided coaches with mutual and beneficial support that had been absent. This chapter has gone on to become the dynamic community that it is today, spanning four Canadian provinces. In addition, I have just completed my 2-year presidency of the International Coach Federation of Austin, Texas.

Drawing on past counselor experiences of supporting couples that were struggling, I recognized the opportunity to develop a proactive coaching approach to support couples in sustaining healthy partnerships. Hence Luv Life Coaching was born! 

Living with Vision

Throughout my varied personal and professional experiences I became convinced that equipping couples with strong partnering skills has a positive ripple effect for families, communities and ultimately every organization where the couple are members.

I have a vision to change our world by coaching couples in an effort to create stronger life partnerships that foster healthier, happier communities and freer, stronger next generations.

Tackling big dreams has me currently working on training other coaches and ministers to join in this vision to change the world through my Partnership Coaching Programs. Click here for more information.

Dedicated to living a life of purpose and vision, my husband Bill and I are enjoying one of the biggest adventures of our life together so far: building a "green" wedding venue and wellness retreat in the Texas Hill Country! A passion to support the healing and well-being of others is the seed that started us both on this incredible journey with The Cedars Ranch. Read more about our dream and mission here.
