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.
When Oprah Winfrey walked across a bed of smoldering coals, she hesitated for a moment before screaming, "Yes! Yes! Yes!" as she bound across the glowing path. Afterward, she seemed elated, shrieking happily and affirming, "I did it. I did it. I did it." Oprah's feeling of empowerment is a common reaction to the firewalking experience, according to Charles Horton, the man behind the Firewalking Institute of Research and Education. Horton, a self-made millionaire, began his career as an entrepreneur at 16, an age at which most kids are still in diapers. During firewalking workshops and seminars, he and his team of coaches encourage participants to set goals and overcome fears that might otherwise hinder them in business and personal life.

The search for purpose in life has plagued philosophers, poets, and average people for centuries, but life coach Kelsha Jones is lucky enough to have discovered hers. Now she finds joy in helping others find purpose, overcome their hurdles, and lead happier lives. A fully certified life coach, she earned her certificate from the World Coach Institute after finishing her master's in human relations and business.
Part of Kelsha's practice includes letting clients determine the structure of their sessions by making their own agenda. As she moves through the agenda, she listens carefully and asks thoughtful questions that help her clients identify actionable solutions to their problems. She then sends them home with a simple goal-oriented homework assignment. At a subsequent session, they catch up on the progress made and formulate new action plans to continue meeting goals, whether that includes working toward a promotion at work or a promotion to Best Son Ever.
