Our naturalist program explores our valley's ecosystem with walks, hikes, and educational programs which are very popular with older children and adults alike.
In addition to guided rides and hikes we have supervised activities like tubing and swimming in our river, fishing, volleyball, and bonfires for everyone to enjoy. Kids under seven are supervised in age appropriate activities by our trained children's counselors. We have a long list of activities to entertain and delight your children while you pursue your own adventures. We get children outside as much as possible to experience adventures they would not get elsewhere - like hands-on horse education. Pony rides for kids aged four through six are a big favorite.
Not only do they get a chance to learn about horses, they get out of the arena with a trained wrangler leading their horse from the ground.
Return of the Laramie Kid
It's a great start for new cowboys and cowgirls. Nature created a great swimming hole directly behind our lodge. Supervised wading and swimming during our warmest months of July and August is very popular.
After a dip in the river, kids can jump into our hot tub which is conveniently located riverside. And don't miss your chance to float the river by innertube! Kids of all ages enjoy exploring the river's banks with out naturalist, tether-ball, flying kites on breezy days, hay rides, and racquet sports like croquet and badminton.
I believe in wholistic care and assisting clients in developing a broader awareness of their capabilities and using skills to reach their goals. I individualize treatment and listen to client's concerns. Office is near:. I have participated in a state sponsored 2 year program to learn to assess and treat children from birth to 5 years old. I also co created and facilitated a therapeutic playgroup that included parents and children ages years. The group was created to help children and parents build relationship through play and also provide parents with resources on how to manage tantrums or other behavioral concerns.
I used play therapy techniques to assist children in processing their thoughts and feelings. We all make mistakes, have struggles, and even regret things from our past. But you are not your mistakes and you are not your struggles. Everyone is capable of change, but sometimes we just need someone to assist us with finding where to start.
I am committed to providing a safe and non-judgmental environment that fosters self-exploration, encourages growth, restores wholeness and provides hope and a few laughs. If you find yourself searching for a therapist that might be right for you, then you're actively taking the first step toward creating the life you hope to live. You don't have to do this alone. A skilled, compassionate therapist can help you navigate whatever changes or challenges you're facing.
I have experience treating depression, anxiety, personality disorders, trauma, grief and specialize in working with adults and adolescents. It takes a lot of courage to take the first step in looking for a therapist who fits your needs. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me. I believe firmly in my clients' natural desire and ability to achieve health and wellness in their lives.
The Crucifixion of Matthew Shepard
I believe in the importance of addressing all aspects of a person's wellbeing: physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and social. I take a client-centered approach, partnering with my clients to work together toward realistic and achievable goals. We live in an age that demands extensive coping skills, and also offers so many opportunities for healing. I'm honored every day to see the unique brilliance of each person I work with, and to offer some valuable new tools, experiences, and lenses to add to the gifts you already bring to the table.
Everyone experiences difficulties in life at some point in time and all individuals deserve to be able to build a trusting relationship with another in which they can feel safe and secure and know that they can be heard in a confidential setting. I am passionate about assisting people who have struggled in school, at work, or interpersonally without knowing the reasons why. A comprehensive evaluation identifies an individual's unique strengths and weaknesses, clarifies diagnosis, and provides insight into the treatments that are likely to be most effective.
I customize each evaluation to the individual needs of the client. Clients and families leave the evaluation process with individualized and detailed recommendations that guide them toward success. Persistent stress can lead to the development of negative thoughts about oneself and the world.
Unresolved stress is linked to disease, disturbance in behavior and emotions and diminished well-being. Through therapy one can identify personal strengths, enhance awareness, and create opportunity for change, growth and healing. I have had the privilege of joining people of all ages, genders and ethnicity on their personal journeys in life.
It would be my honor to be asked to be a part of this walk with you. If you are inquisitive, ready and willing to look at your life, your thoughts, choices and actions and make steps forward, then I am the person for you. I work with individuals, and couples and have a great deal of experience with men's and women's issues. I am grateful, caring, mindful, supportive, soulful, kind, compassionate and strong. I am passionate about helping people heal. I have worked with people who have experienced trauma and PTSD, substance-abuse, co-occurring disorders, serious and persistent mental illness, people who self-harm, people involved in the criminal justice system, and people with disabilities.
I enjoy working with adults, and children 10 years and older. I understand Spanish and have counseled people whose first language is Spanish. Laramie has changed in some ways. The city council passed a bias crimes ordinance that tracks such crimes, though it does not include penalties for them.
Return to Laramie - UWEC stages documentary-style play about
Several residents say they came out publicly as gay, in their churches or on campus, in part to honor Mr. The university hosts a four-day Shepard Symposium for Social Justice each spring, and there is talk of creating a degree minor in gay and lesbian studies. And yet, to the bewilderment of some people here, there is no memorial to Mr. Shepard in Laramie. The log fence has been torn down where he lay dying for 18 hours on Oct. There is no marker. Wild grass blows in the wind. The Fireside bar — where Mr. Shepard was lured away by Aaron McKinney and Russell Henderson, who are serving life terms for murder — is also gone, sold and renamed years ago.
Without the Fireside, there is no longer a bar in town where gays, jocks, foreign students and cowboys mix together. View all New York Times newsletters. Mickelson, wearing a weathered white cowboy hat and a university sweater sporting a large W, said he lost almost everything because of the infamy of the Shepard murder. He ended up moving from the place he loved to look for work elsewhere. Mickelson said over beers at a dance hall here, the Saloon.
They gave our whole state a black eye. They gave the university a black eye. It was hate crime, hate crime, hate crime.
