Hello, my name is Cicely Charlson, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Oklahoma. I have 11 years of experience working in the mental health field. I have worked in outpatient care as well as in-home. I have the most experience working with stress/anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma/abuse, anger management and life transitions. I have some experience with depression and mild autism. The modals of therapy I use are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) for trauma and Anger Management Therapy.
Life is an ongoing journey through different transitions and challenges. Sometimes we can manage on our own and other times we may need a little extra support. I want to help you navigate those challenging times in your life. We will work together so you can achieve more peace, mindfulness and clarity in decision making. My belief for counseling comes from my passion to help people grow because if you are not growing then you are not living; every living thing grows and matures.
I became a part of the mental health field because I grew up in an angry household where there was a lack of communication and healthy coping skills. Communication and healthy coping skills are some things I had to learn in order to achieve peace and mindfulness in my life. I want to partner with you so you will feel empowered to have that in your life as well.

Cicely is an amazing listener. I have had two sessions with her at this point and I have made more progress than I have in years of trying with other therapists. She is absolutely amazing.
Cicely is amazing! She’s what I have really been looking for in a therapist. She fully listens to all my issues and helps me look at ways to solve and tackle them. She is kind and not condescending at all
I have loved working with Cicely. I didn't realize that a roadblock in my past therapy was that my former therapists coddled me quite a bit. Cicely challenges me to look at things in a very different manner than what comes naturally. She also pushes me to find authenticity in my interactions with others, and has encouraged me to be a better friend to myself. I would recommend her to anyone, but most especially to anyone who is also living through life as a Black woman in the U.S.
An excellent counselor, Cicely is adept at helping someone through hard times.
She is amazing!
Cicely is truly a life savior, she listened to what I have to say and pointed out the important things that will help me. Now I feel like I have more control of myself and I'm extremely grateful to have her as my counselor. She is a super woman and I'm gonna miss her dearly.
I've been working with Cicely for a little over six months now, and she's been really helpful in gently pointing out areas to work on. She provides a safe space to vent, a listening ear, and feedback based on her professional expertise and religious faith (something I requested). In more recent months, I've begun to see my life transform into a better me. I'm not perfect by any means, but my thoughts and emotions aren't as damaging to my life (and others) as they'd once been.
Cicely has created a space where i feel safe, validated, and heard. I am incredibly thankful for this service, and for her as a person.
Cicely is AMAZING! She truly listens to what your true concerns are and carefully advises you and encourages you. I made the right decision seeking counseling and I'm so glad I was matched with her! Thank you Cicely for helping me and supporting me. It's so greatly appreciated! God bless!
Working with Cicely has been life changing — she connects with me on such an interpersonal level and has helped me work through / on / to resolve countless deep rooted issues. I have made bounds of progress / discovery in my own life because of working with her and continue to make paramount progress in each session that occurs.
Cicely has helped me through so much, I could say that me before therapy and after therapy are two different people. She made me challenge myself which I don’t do a lot but I did it and I faced my fears and now I am free of the despair and depression that once affected me so badly. 10/10
