"Sarah is part of the village. It takes a village. She has done a lot of research. She is a parent who understands the additional complexities that happen with our foster/adoptive families. This was invaluable throughout the process.”

About Sarah

I’m a Certified Parent Coach® whose passion is helping families with children who have experienced trauma or struggle with attachment.

I started The Foster Lane Parent Coaching in 2016. My goal: Use coaching to help others avoid some of the parenting challenges my own family faced.

I’ve spent over 1,500 hours researching trauma, children’s brain development, parenting strategies, and foster and adoptive parenting. I successfully completed the masters-level Parent Coach Certification program through the Parent Coaching Institute®, have completed the initial training in Theraplay™, and continue to attend conferences on trauma-informed parenting.
