Who Am I?

​I am Sara Donaldson, a child/parent specialist coach, who loves to partner with caregivers to work with their children on healing and developing to their fullest potential.  Whether that is in the play room with a 6 year old who is working through grief or a 16 year old navigating difficult relationships, children are my passion.  I am a 20 year Elementary School Counselor veteran who is also a School-Based Registered Play Therapist.  I have extensive experience working within the special education world and can also help parents navigate this system and their roles.  I believe cooperation between the coach, parents and child is vital to the family unit success. 

Outside of working with children and caregivers, you will find me helping people obtain optimal health as I coach them, one on one, the habits of health.  You will also find me at my church co-leading our women’s ministry program and singing in our worship band.  In addition, I have a 16 year old daughter who keeps us on our toes. Our youth group within our church allows me the opportunity to work with teenagers on a regular basis as I am no longer the youth leader at our small church.   We are avid animal lovers as evident in our 5 cats, 2 dogs and 3 chickens that run around our property. 


I Love Working With:
-Children ages 5-18 who are grappling with many concerns at school, home and in the community.  These concerns may be, but are not limited to: emotional regulation, conflict management, bullying, self-esteem, grief, anger management, some trauma issues, goal setting, career exploration, just to name a few.

-Parents in order to create a healthier family unit.

-Schools to collaborate and advocate for what is best for each child I work within the educational setting.


Some of my Favorite Approaches Are:

Play Therapy for younger children, sandtray utilization, CBT, motivational interviewing, solution-focused, all the while fully collaborating with parents to discuss parental style and what would benefit the family.


I'm am always happy to answer any questions you may have.  Let's connect.
