Everyone operates better as a part of a team.
The Foster Lane helps counties support their biological parents by offering coaching focused on eliminating their barriers to reunification, even if they struggle with mental health and AODA issues.
The Foster Lane also supports foster parents who are struggling with the children in their care due to their trauma behaviors.
We do this by meeting parents where they are while simultaneously taking them through a (weekly) evidence based 4 month program.
That is not a mission to tackle alone.Schedule a meeting with a member of the team today!
Meet the Team
Hi! I'm 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 2,000 hours researching trauma, children’s brain development, parenting strategies, and foster and adoptive parenting. I successfully completed the graduate-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.
Plus, I have plenty of life experience. I’ve navigated and parented through...
and I’ve lived and learned with kids who’ve had...
Meet the Office Administrator
Kelly is a biological, foster, and adoptive parent who has been parenting for over 11 years. Personally, she has experienced the peaks and valleys of parenting children whom have experienced trauma and even has personal experience with Theraplay™ as well as parent child interaction therapy. She recognizes the need to continually learn so as to be the best trauma informed parent she can be for her children.
In addition to her parenting experience, she also brings a host of professional skills to the table. Her multi-tasking and research abilities were honed in her graduate program and her work with local programs. She is excited to join the team due to having needed support for struggles in her personal journey with foster care. She understands how necessary these supports are for parents and is happy to be a part of a team that is offering that up to the families that need it most. We are lucky to have her on the team and are confident you will enjoy working with her as well!
