Lance is a Licensed Professional Counselor and is responsible for many of the social awareness weeks on campus, including alcohol, tobacco, domestic violence and sexual assault.
He came straight to CWC after earning his MS in Counseling at the University of Wyoming and was first hired at the college as the housing manager. He was later named Director of Student Life and is now the college's counselor.
He was appointed by Gov. Dave Freudenthal to serve on the Mental Health Professions Licensing Board, representing LPCs in Wyoming. He has also served on the Board of Directors of the Family Violence program, and is a member of the Alcohol, Drug and Suicide Prevention Coalition in Fremont County.
Lance provides a variety of counseling services to current and past CWC students to facilitate meeting their educational goals. Services include career counseling and assessment, academic skills development and personal counseling. These services may be offered individually, in groups, in seminars or workshops, and some can be offered long distance via web-camera or telephone. All counseling services are offered free of charge to CWC students. The Counseling Office works from a short term treatment model. If it appears that a student needs or wants long-term therapy, a referral is made to the appropriate resources.
