About the author

Hello, My name is Sarah. Just like you, I am a parent to a child that has experienced trauma! I also happen to be a PCI Certified Parent Coach®. I specialize in helping parents with children who have experienced trauma move from surviving to thriving in their daily life. Like you, I've certainly experienced struggles in my parenting journey. Largely in part to those struggles and all the research, trial and error (so much of that!), and learning I have done, I have tried and true strategies and expertise to share. That's where you come in. Maybe you're the parent of a foster child. Maybe you're the parent of an adopted child. Maybe you're a parent working toward reunification with your child in foster care. Or maybe you're a parent trying to understand the unique trauma your biological child has experienced. We all have something in common—we hope to parent in the way that we would want our children to remember. Even if you're not there yet, I'm here to help you learn. You have the power to support your child in a way that recognizes their trauma, and in a way that loves your child through each and every hard time. You also have the right to be supported by others through your own journey as a parent. I started The Foster Lane in 2016 after a failed first foster placement. Living through that devastating experience, I knew there was a need for a parent coach who also recognizes trauma struggles and attachment needs. I have a strong desire to help others overcome some of the challenges my own family faced and help those families connect in deep and meaningful ways as much is healed through relationships. My approach to coaching is rewarding and collaborative. It is not always easy, but it does create real results. As a Certified Parent Coach ® certified by the Parent Coach Institute and the owner of a very busy parent coaching practice, I have spent thousands of hours reading and learning about trauma, children's brain development, parenting strategies, and foster care and adoption. I attend parenting conferences and offer insights on my blog. But most of all, I write from a place of experience and solidarity as a parent of children who have experienced trauma.
