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.
At Amazing Weight Loss and Wellness, the staff uses every trick in the book to help clients lose weight. Physician-supervised weight-loss programs help dieters through nutrition and exercise counseling, vitamin and mineral injections, and even prescription appetite suppressants for some candidates. Each weight-loss plan is tailored to suit an individual's history and personal goals. According to the staff, the plans have helped clients lose up to 25 pounds in their first month. Outside of weight-loss services, the clinic's testosterone-replacement therapy helps men regain energy and sex drives, and Botox and Juvéderm injections smooth away wrinkles in foreheads or executive contracts.
The Clinical Skin Care Center Med Spa currently operates under the medical direction of Dr. David Azouz, a board-certified plastic surgeon with more than 25 years of experience performing cosmetic surgery on the face and body. He and their staff perform cosmetic laser procedures that use radio frequency, light energy, and other technologies to target signs of aging on the face or body, as well as acne, acne scarring, and cellulite. The microdermabrasion treatments gently remove the topmost layer of skin to reveal softer skin, while also softening lines and fight acne.
Located inside the Shawn Kristopher Salon and MedSpa, Prater's Skincare and Laser Center is the brainchild of laser technician and aesthetician Erica Prater. She enlists the aid of Dr. Pirinelli, a Board-licensed anesthesiologist with experience in injectables, lasers, and other medical-spa treatments, to help improve clients' appearances. Using their slate of treatments, they help to banish body hair with laser hair removal, remove dead skin cells with microdermabrasion, and fade wrinkles with Botox injections or cinematic effects.
