Hi, I'm Heather Fillmore
I'm a certified Life Coach who helps burnt out moms of kids with special needs or challenges.

"5 Simple Secrets for Connecting with your Extra Tricky Child" and my weekly email newsletter with helpful tips that can make all the difference for you as their mom.
I've got you.
Sweet Mama who has a child with special needs. I see you.
Although you love your child to the moon and wouldn't trade them for the world, you feel like a different person than you used to be.
No one seems to "get" you anymore. It's painful seeing that your child is so far behind. You know he's on his own timetable, but it's really hard not to compare him with other kids and feel sad.
You wish people could see your child's potential like you do. But they only seem to see what's different. Maybe you worry about their incorrect judgments and feel resentful when they say ignorant things. Maybe you feel hurt when they don't include your family like they used to.
I get you, Mama. I have three children with special needs and I've experienced everything above. Hiring a good life coach helped me quit feeling like a victim and a mean mama bear. It helped me to feel alive and to find the true me that I had lost.
I loved what I learned so much that I became specially trained and skilled to help other moms like me to do the same. I'd love to help you feel better. Let's have a conversation!
Here's What Past Clients Are Saying
"I am so grateful I got to be coached by Heather! I feel more empowered with life and am excited to face the future, come what may! I really valued her opening my mind to push me to believe and take action on the dreams I want to accomplish! My emotional pool of stability is stronger now because of knowing how to better coach myself! It was worth every minute and penny!"
Heather helped me more than I can adequately describe. I’m more aware of my thoughts and how they influence my decisions. Now I understand the difference between thoughts and circumstances, and have the tools to work through things that I’m struggling with. These tools have helped me to let go of things that are out of my control and not judge myself so harshly for the parenting mistakes that I’ve made. I wish I had known these things when my kids were younger so that I could have helped them to process emotion and deal with difficult circumstances and people. Every mom needs these tools!!
"In just a few weeks of taking her class and having one-on-one coaching, I have seen the most remarkable changes in the way I think and have control over my feelings. My relationships with others have increased, my life and choices is 100% my ownership, and I have started facing my fears and creating the results I want in my life. Everyone needs a Heather!"
We adopted a child in 2012 who has multiple diagnoses and struggles with lying and manipulating people and situations in order to feel safe. Attachment, connection and relationships are difficult and over the years I had developed quite a hardened heart towards her. This caused me guilt, self-loathing, anger towards my daughter and despair about the future. After one coaching session with Heather, I realized how my thoughts, emotions and reactions to my daughter had been pushing me away from her in my mind. Heather suggested some shifts in my thought patterns. They seemed minor, but had a major impact on my perspective. She was able to pinpoint one of my initiating thoughts and helped me to see the result it was creating. It’s simple and mind blowing all at the same time.
Loving my daughter unconditionally takes practice, but Heather helps me to retrain my brain and get me back on track. It has been so helpful with my day to day interactions with my daughter, to perceive her in a different light and to be aware of my inner dialogue and alter it if it is not serving me.
Also, I need to confess: A video coaching session sounded like a nightmare to me, and I was pretty nervous about it. But Heather is one of the most compassionate people I have ever known. There is zero judgement and I left the session feeling like someone had just come alongside me with Christ-like love, offering wise suggestions and new ways of thinking about things, but never pushing.
