Nice to meet you again!

Hi, I’m Richard Dixson,

And I teach parents and caregivers how to transform their ineffective parenting patterns into empowering parenting behaviors so they can create drama-free households.

I’m originally from Monroe, Louisiana, where I was born when my mom was just a teenager. I also spent a few years living with my aunt in Kansas City. I’ve always had that entrepreneurial spirit — I always looked for a way to turn ideas into action. Earlier in my career, I worked in ministry, owned a real estate company, and even spent several years as a writer.

Then, 31 years ago, my wife and I adopted our son, Jordan.

When he was in second grade, Jordan was diagnosed with ADHD. We were given a prescription for medication and ushered out of the doctor’s office, and that’s it. We didn’t know what our son’s future would look like, because there were zero options or resources available for parents of children who had experienced trauma.

That’s when I first realized that there had to be a better way.

Eventually, we discovered Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI), a methodology specifically developed to help children who have experienced harm, trauma, or adversity. My wife and I were so impressed with the strategy and outcomes that we decided to become trained facilitators through the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development at the Texas Christian University College of Science and Engineering.

Today, my wife and I are raising our four grandchildren: an 8-year-old, a 5-year-old, and 3-year-old twins.

To help children who’ve experienced trauma, you have to start with the parents and caregivers.

The mental health cycles that begin in childhood often extend far beyond childhood, even through generations.

Traditional parenting models are outdated, and they’re not serving you or your kids. That’s why I’m on a mission to change the approach to parenting so that caregivers like you can feel confident in your choices and see your children thrive.

Are you ready to feel confident in your ability to…


Be a successful parent


Create a safe, happy home


And watch with pride as your child grows into a well-rounded person?
