About My Practice


I support babies, kids, parents and adults into deeper balance and health, and I love nurturing healthy family relationships, wise parenting and co-parenting. My specialty is transforming stress/trauma from preconception to the post-birth period for all ages and building new internal resources.

Feel more connected to yourself, others, your body, instincts and intuition. Learn how to be grounded, resourced, integrated and calm. Practice good self-care by listening to your body, emotions and intuition and by using simple mindfulness practices.

Gentle cranial sacral will help you to relax and reboot your nervous system, unwind and relieve stress and pain. Or, if you’re a deep diver, explore the power of your mind/body/soul synergy. Call for a free phone consult.

I’ve found that lasting change has come from a combination of talk therapy and somatic work. Karen Melton is a rare practitioners who has mastered both these realms. She is wise and articulate in her words, revealing that she has done her own work on her path to self-knowledge and acceptance. Her somatic hands-on skills border on genius. In addition to these rare gifts, Karen also has a big heart, and is very kind. She has helped my wife and I, and my children, to vastly improve the quality of our lives.
