about the coach
I’m Catie Loeffler. I am passionate about helping people have healthy relationships because generations of my family chose divorce and I know the devastation it causes. I believe in setting a strong foundation prior to marriage and seeking out a “coach” for tools to deepen and develop a relationship further. I also believe that most marriages that have experienced significant damage can be repaired if both parties are willing.
It was my past experience as a Care and Counseling pastor that propelled my passion for helping couples to flourish. All too often couples came in for help because they felt hopeless. It was so inspiring to see them develop understanding of themselves as individuals and as a couple while using tools to deepen their relationship.
What makes me great at what I do is that I glean wisdom from the Bible and have had years of training and hands on experience helping people to develop tools for healthy relationships no matter what stage their relationship is in. I have attended Lynchburg College, Regent University, and Mount San Jacinto college, majoring in Psychology. I am also a certified facilitator for Prepare and Enrich and Symbis Premarital programs. I am also certified as a Crisis and Trauma coach by Dr. H. Norman Wright. In addition, I have received training in Emotional Intelligence, Myers Briggs, The Gottman Institute Art and Science of Love. I am an avid reader and learner and I believe in staying current on the latest advances in culture, science, and technology.
My own experience with relationships has been a great source of wisdom gained through trial and error. I entered into early relationships without any tools for most of my young adult life. To say I was a disaster in relationships is an understatement. Now as a mature woman (in age and experience), I have a very healthy marriage and consider it my calling to help couples realize the incredible gift that marriage is and how to treat it as such while being imperfect human beings.
Most of my “white space” time is spent in the outdoors. I love hiking, kayaking in the ocean and watching wildlife.
