As a trauma trained educator, I have trained thousands of foster parents over the years and have been looking for a practical, easy to read book to recommend to new foster parents and I’m happy to say “Welcome to the Foster Lane” is it. 

Sarah has hit the ball out of the park with her soon to be #1 Best Seller. Full of practical advice, this book is a must read for any adult touched by foster care or adoption. 


Sarah’s honesty makes you feel validated, her words like a much needed warm hug to our often times weary spirits.

Adult Only Coaching

One on One Parent Coaching

Parent coaching that is one on one (or two for coupled adults) allows parents to learn new skills while discussing present day struggles. 

Clients meet weekly via Zoom for 45 minutes.

The sessions are typically set up in the following fashion:

  • 5-10 minute check in on the week.
  • 30 minute chat re current struggles and possible approaches/ some content review.
  • 5 minute recap/homework assigned.

This style works best for parents who are able to chat through current struggles and implement strategies in their home each week.

Group Coaching

Group coaching is best situated for a group of 4-5 adults who are in similar parenting situations. This coaching is set to take the group through pre-determined content while custom fitting each session to the present day parenting struggles of the participants.

Groups meet weekly via Zoom for 45 minutes.

The sessions are typically set up in the following fashion:

  • 10-15 minute check in (total) of the week.
  • 25 minute chat re current struggles and possible approaches/ heavy content review.
  • 5 minute recap/homework assigned.

This style works best for parents who do well in groups and do best hearing about other parent's struggles and successes.

Parent and Child Together Coaching

Parent/Child Interaction

Structured parent/child interactions utilize Theraply™ principles and are structured to support the parent/child attachment, increase the zones of regulation for the child, and help parents and children learn new ways of engaging together.

Clients meet weekly via Zoom for 45 minutes.

The sessions are typically set up in the following fashion:

  • Fun entrance into the play space.
  • Check for hurts.
  • 4 activities that are pre-planned and structured by Sarah (eventually transitioning the structuring to mom or dad).
  • Song.
  • Book and snack.
  • Silly exit of the play space.

This engagement works best for parents who are looking for hands on support and examples of ways to interact with their children while simultaneously increasing parental attachment.

Parent/Child Realtime Coaching

Sometimes the best coaching happens in the moment- kind of like Supper Nanny. 

This can be a single event or repeating depending on parent/child needs. 

The sessions are typically set up in the following fashion:

  • 45 minute call with parent(s) and Sarah to discuss parental concerns.
  • Parent sets up camera in corner of room.
  • Parent and child interact as they typically would.
  • Sarah "notices" and helps parents "notice" cues children give off. Sarah helps parents respond in new ways on the spot.
  • 45 minute post zoom to discuss what went well, what was noticed, what the parents noticed, as well as to develop strategies for future parent/child interactions.

This style works best for parents who struggle to identify where there are relationship/parenting challenges and are open to in the moment coaching.

Sound Immersion

Sound Immersion with Mary Bushke

 Do you struggle with relaxation and regulation? If so, this service is right for you. Sound immersion is the deliberate playing of gongs for the purpose of increasing regulation and relaxation setting you up with the ability to respond rather than react to life's stressors.
