Sara has specialized training and experience in working with children and adults with foster care and adoption in their history, which often centers around issues related to attachment, attunement, and grief/loss. Sara works with many adoptive families on the challenges related to parenting children that have gone through significant trauma and she works to collaboratively identify trauma-informed parenting strategies in a judgement free atmosphere.
