Tynan Mason has seen firsthand the struggles of many families and individuals with behavioral challenges. He has seen them take approaches that do not work. This is why he established Higher Grounds Management, a behavior intervention practice to introduce more effective methods to families in the United States. Ty, who prefers to be called Coach Ty, is a certified life and health coach specializing in motivational interviewing techniques, family mediation, behavior intervention, and relapse prevention. He has been in the practice for more than 18 years, and he runs this practice with his cousin, Mike Beiras, who has 20 years of experience in federal law enforcement. Together, they are using an evidence-based, customized behavior treatment program approach to achieve the best results.
The desire to establish this kind of practice was born out of Coach Ty’s personal experiences as a problematic child. He did all sorts of things, from selling pot to making a lot of bad choices. His current business partner, Coach Mike, his cousin, was responsible for setting him straight. Now, Coach Ty is ready to pay it forward by helping troubled individuals and families get it right. Tynan Mason has worked as a gang intervention specialist, juvenile probation officer, and deputy probation officer.
He has a bachelor’s degree in psychology and criminal justice from UNLV. He also has certifications in mediation and conflict resolution and was a member of the 2020 class at the Manhattan Beach Leadership Council. To augment the works of Higher Grounds Elite Behavior and Intervention Management, Coach Ty founded a nonprofit organization named Journey Home for middle school and high school students with behavioral challenges. The foundation also supports parents that cannot afford private services.
Higher Grounds and Journey Home Organization work together to help families function properly as well as keep every child and young adult in check with the right behavior. This practice is also the first of its kind anywhere, as no other service offers elite behavioral management and private probation service without rehab or therapy. The team of behavioral correctors comprises former federal and juvenile probation officers, board-certified behavior analysts, licensed marriage and family therapists, individualized academic tutors, and certified life and health coaches.
One of the parents who enrolled their child with Coach Ty’s program had this to say:
“We tried rehab, therapy, punishments, and everything else you can think of for my son who was making bad decisions. Higher Grounds is the ONLY thing that ever worked. Ty and his team have given me hope. He is a ‘teen whisperer’ and somehow gets through and makes an impact when you’re ready to just pull all your hair out. Parenting a troubled teen can be heartbreaking. If you’re in that situation, call Ty and his team. Trust me on this. You’ll find yourself personally benefiting from his advice and mentoring as much as your teen does. He’s extraordinary. And best of all are the results. It’s a journey and we’re still walking the path, but now I’ve got my son back. He smiles. He jokes around and engages in the conversation. Heck, sometimes he even does the dishes without being asked. There are no miracle cures, but Ty and his team are SO much better than ‘the system.’ I really can’t say enough about Higher Grounds. Feel free to contact me if you want to talk about it. It’s a difficult topic and I’d be happy to pay it forward,” Steve Dunlap shares.
HG and JH target families that have members with problematic behaviors and young adults or teenagers struggling with addiction, bad manners, and poor discipline, among other challenges. The service eliminates the need to send poorly behaved individuals to rehab or therapy. Coach Tynan Mason and the team get it right and are hoping to cover more grounds throughout the United States in the next five years.
