It's a podcast, but it's more like chatting with a gal pal
From quick, actionable steps to make your foster care journey easier, to interviews with foster and adoptive mamas, the Fearless Fostering Podcast delivers education and encouragement weekly.
No matter how you slice it, foster care is full of unknowns. Just when you think you DO know something, you find out something totally different. Find out what you can do to control what you CAN control.
If you're about to start your foster care journey, and you're wondering what to say and what to do for your bio kids to make the transition easier for them (and you!), I've got your back. Tune in to find out the best practices for talking to your bio kids before your first foster child arrives.
Oh, IT MATTERS! I'll be reminding you (A LOT) that it's important to take care of your physical, mental, and spiritual health at every stage of your foster care journey.
I'm Cathleen, your new (foster) mom friend.
I'm also a psychotherapist in private practice who wants to teach my fellow foster mamas the skills that ACTUALLY work to overcome stress, anxiety and overwhelm...'cause ain't nobody got time for that!
Nothing lights me up more than the prospect of being able to support and encourage women, at any stage of their foster care journey. If more women felt connected and safe as foster parents, would more of them decide to foster? Would less children be waiting for a safe place to land? I'm here to find out.
My superpower is helping foster mamas become the best version of themselves while pursuing the best foster care experience possible.... one with abundant freedom, joy, and peace.
"Cathleen does a great job sharing her knowledge AND bringing in other great resources to support foster families. Tons of great stuff and short enough for this foster mama to listen! :) Thanks Cathleen!"
"What a breath of fresh air! Like an incredibly wise best friend that fills my cup every time we meet!"
"So uplifting! Love this!"
