7:37AM MDT Ask-Our-Local Expert, Travis Lingenfelter, Marketing Director from Pointe Frontier Retirement Community in Cheyenne returns to continue his series on aging and retirement, and with him, Dorothy Thomas from the Department of Family Services. Friday is the International day of awareness for elderly abuse, and Pointe Frontier wants to make sure everyone is aware of this day and what events the Department of Family Services is providing as support of this day.
8:07AM MDT Dr. Margaret Cochran is back for her monthly visit with us. Dr. Cochran is a transpersonal psychologist, licensed clinical social worker, educator and author with more than 30 years of clinical experience. She is most often described by her patients as tough, compassionate and smart. She has a provocative message on her answering machine: ” Who are you, what do you want and how and when can you be reached? If you know the answer to these seemingly simple questions, be joyful, because most of us spend our whole lives working on the answers.” She takes a prismatic approach to therapy saying “I see things as a whole and acknowledge the intricate value of the parts therein. In our culture, we tend to value the rational and linear ways of exploring and thinking about the world above all else. But our senses need not be limited to just perceiving the three dimensional, corporeal world. Science has shown that everything is made of energy which we receive and interpret at various levels and to varying degrees.”
