Six weeks into our first foster placement, I was sobbing my eyes out in a Starbucks.

My husband and I had just had the rug pulled out from under us at a case review meeting... my heart ached in a way that I had never felt before, and I remember my husband asking me, "are we sure we can handle this?"

i can help because i've been there, too

Suddenly, I found myself leaning heavily on the skills I used in therapy with my clients to ease my own sense of overwhelm and anxiety. And then it hit me: if I felt that way, a loooot of other foster mamas probably did, too. And that's how Fearless Fostering was born.

Here's a peek at what you'll be getting:

Evidence based stress reduction training

I'll help you change the way you respond to prolonged periods of stress and uncertainty on two group coaching calls per month.

a restful weekend retreat

Practice new coping skills and cultivate friendships on an immersive, luxury retreat just for foster mamas. 

an inner circle of foster mom friends

Grow, learn, and share with moms who GET it via a Marco Polo group chat.
