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.

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.

It has been my great pleasure to work with Karen. She embodies a wonderful combination of warmth, sensitivity and a great depth of understanding of depth psychology, attachment theory and pre and perinatal development. If you want work at your depth, at the root of your psychological, relational and/or spiritual issues, Karen is a wonderful resource and partner for supporting healing at these deepest levels.
