Hi, I’m Karen Proctor.  I founded Greenleaf Life Coaching and became a Certified Life Coach to help men and women just like you realize greater possibilities for a happier, more fulfilled life.

At an early age, I too experienced a multitude of life challenges, as well as trauma.  Because of these life-altering circumstances, for years I wrestled with self-doubt and conflict, along with struggles in school and relationships.  As I grew older, I realized I needed to make a powerful change in my life, to shift my perspective, to reprogram the belief system that was holding me back from the life I desired.   I needed to trust people and find those who would help and support my new-found journey. With this, I went back to school and discovered a deep sense of accomplishment when I graduated with high-honors earning my Bachelor’s Degree and thereafter, my Master’s Degree.  Now, I live the life of my dreams with family and friends.

My goal is to help you discover an alternative deliverance for progress, not perfection. I want you to recognize that which is holding you back, to accept your past, while empowering your future, and to experience true freedom and find the beauty in life.
