Casey Dixon, M.S.Ed., PCC, BCC, SCAC

Casey Dixon is a highly-respected and sought-after ADHD coach with over 15 years of experience working with high achievers who happen to have ADHD. As the Founder of Dixon Life Coaching, Casey has built a team of ADHD coaches to help people across a variety of industries, including lawyers, professors, and business professionals, develop the skills to thrive with ADHD. She has also created multiple self-guided courses based on her ADHD coaching model to teach people at all points in their journey how to better manage their ADHD. All of Dixon Life Coaching's programming is based on the NODE model, a 4-step performance model for high achievers with ADHD developed by Casey. 

Casey understands that change can be difficult for folks with ADHD and likes to make coaching fun when she can. She meets her clients where they are and provides a safe, judgment-free space to explore what works and what doesn't while developing the tools to rein in their ADHD. After more than 15 years coaching ADHD clients, Casey knows a lot about ADHD, and her direct and pragmatic approach suits logical, fast-thinking, and creative types especially well. 

Casey founded Dixon Life Coaching in 2005, a natural progression after a 15-year career supporting students and adults with learning disabilities and ADHD in schools and universities. With a national reputation for helping clients excel in authentic and creative ways using ADHD-informed approaches, Casey is recognized as a Senior Certified ADHD Coach, Professional Certified Coach, and Board Certified Coach. Her hallmark is reliably delivering direct results without judgment.

Casey is currently only accepting coaching clients who have completed all of her prior ADHD programs. She is available for select keynote speeches, presentations, CLEs/training, podcasts, and interviews.

Casey is currently accepting select coaching clients for our 6-month One-to-One Coaching program. She is not accepting any clients for our 6-session Live Well ADHD One-to-One Coaching option.

Why do you like working with high achievers who have ADHD?

High achievers with ADHD have a unique experience in life - they have learned how to manage their symptoms enough to get by or even thrive, but it often comes at a huge cost to their well-being. I love helping high achievers make small changes that have a huge positive impact on their work, their relationships, and their life so they can excel in a way that makes them feel more confident, capable, and in control of their life.

Casey's Coaching Style

I work with super-smart folks who can easily get derailed by their ADHD. I have a deep understanding of the point where competence and accomplishment collide with dysregulation and stuckness, and I love helping clients break through that barrier. As a Coach, I listen intensely without judgment, add a logical voice when I can and bring a bit of humor to sessions. 

In her coaching work, Casey helps clients to:

  • Gain clarity about what's really going on in an ADHD brain

  • Identify patterns and ways of being that are beneficial and/or sabotaging

  • Find unique and "custom-to-them" approaches to develop new habits

  • Learn how to get more done while working less

  • Eliminate the attention and time they're giving to things that aren't worthy of their attention and time

  • Learn how to work with their ADHD, not against it, and figure out how they can fix their environment to suit who they are so they can be more authentic and natural at work and in life

  • Develop the skills to say no, set boundaries, and eliminate things that don't work for them

  • Use their strengths in ways that will help them become more productive, efficient, and organized
