About My Practice


I help babies, kids, parents, and adults, with:

Anxieties, fears, core isolation, difficulty with transitions, and disconnection from: self, others, the body, instincts, and intuition. I support healthy family relationships, and wise parenting and co-parenting.

You can expect to develop a deeper connection with yourself, feel more grounded, resourced, integrated, and calm. Learn self-care through listening to your body, emotions, intuition, and by using some simple mindfulness practices.

My specialty is transforming stress/trauma from the pre-conception – post-birth period.

Relax and re-boot your nervous system, unwind and relieve stress and pain, with a gentle cranial sacral session! Or, if you’re a deep diver – explore the power of your mind/body/Soul synergy.

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.
