It took life coach Pam Robinson longer than a decade to amass the life-changing techniques she deploys today at Focus on Your Success. Though the transformations she triggers are often visible, the work she does is internal, with methods such as guided imagery and the emotional-freedom technique (EFT). Whereas guided imagery pairs positive affirmations with gradual relaxation in an effort to combat a negative attitude, EFT uses a blend of acupressure and verbal therapy to dispel negative emotions and the negative behaviors that accompany them (such as smoking or overeating). EFT also helps lessen stress.

Youth and Family Counseling was founded in 1981 by the police chiefs of Lewisville, Flower Mound, and Highland Village, who initially created the first-offender program. With the hopes of diverting youth offenders from the juvenile justice system and becoming repeat offenders, the first-offender program incorporates family participation during counseling sessions, and aims to identify and address the root causes behind problematic behaviors. Through combined resources from the police departments, the community, and local schools, Youth and Family Counseling provides each family it serves with six free counseling sessions. Today, the organization also runs a community-referred counseling program for residents seeking affordable psychological treatment. Counseling sessions for both programs are led by master's-level therapists that are fully licensed or working toward their licensure. The professional services are comparable to private-practice treatment, but are available at a cost that is tailored to low-income families.
