Hi, I'm Brigitte Shipman and I’m a mom to two beautiful adult sons, author, and life coach. I help moms with children on the spectrum to navigate the journey of autism so that they can be their most loving and joyous selves in guiding their child.
I was an educator and director in the public school system for 20 years and now I am a Certified Martha Beck (aka Oprah’s life coach) Life Coach.
My journey as a mother has been faced with challenges of raising my son Joseph through autism, type I diabetes, losing my sons' father, and drug addiction of my younger son.
Life "tsunamis" hit me pretty hard and I was in survival mode every day. But I was a mother warrior so I kept fighting for my children and kept praying each day to help me find the way. I eventually found a way and got my family back on track and started helping other women struggling in their life tsunamis.
I now live a life of gratitude being a mother of two grown sons, single, and loving my life. I love spending time with my family, having long deep conversations, dancing anywhere, traveling, and helping other moms thrive in their lives.
Currently, both of my sons are thriving in their lives. Being their mother has been the highest honor in my life. They both have been my greatest teachers. They continue to show me opportunities for personal growth. They each own half of my heart.
