(LPC, CCTP)

About Me

Hello! I welcome you with open arms to explore how Better Help might facilitate your ability to resolve the struggles you’re experiencing right now. My name is Sophilia Lark and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the Oklahoma City metro area. I have over 11 years of professional experience working with children, adolescents, and young adults on a variety of clinical concerns.

I earned my Master's degree in Counseling Psychology in 2008, and I am certified as a clinical trauma professional. My experience includes working with individuals with complex trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, self-esteem, mood disorders, gender and sexuality struggles including LGBTQ+ issues, workplace problems, and spiritual crises.

My approach to therapy is first and foremost, collaborative and client-centered, as I believe the client is the expert on one’s life, and just needs guidance to get to the desired destination. As we begin to explore deeper issues, I may employ Cognitive Behavioral, Interpersonal, solutions-based and/or trauma-focused techniques that provide more structure and a time-line for goal accomplishment.

You can expect me to gently walk with you through your struggles as you discover your unique path toward a rich and fulfilling life. I can be available to you via video, phone, or text depending on which medium best suits your needs. I am available afternoons and evenings central standard time, but I occasionally take weekend appointments based on critical need. I check my messages every Tuesday and Thursday to respond to any questions that you may have between sessions.

I know that it can be difficult to find a counselor who you can connect with and hoping that I can provide that connection as you work to improve your life. Let’s begin!

My short time with Sophilia has been incredibly helpful. She is warm, attentive, and patient with me. I do believe that she can help me considerably as we spend more time with each other. Also, Sophilia responds to messages very quickly and I appreciate this. It is obvious she cares about helping people and I am glad to have her as my counselor.

I wanted to read another review before I got but she is amazing counselor and she always gives all the resources and support you need.
Even though I was with her for short time, I found out alot about myself and help to keep moving forward.
She will always be my first choice no matter what.

Sophilia has been very helpful for me to establish what exactly I’m looking to get from counseling as well as setting goals with tools to reach those goals. She’s understanding, patient and genuine.

Sophilia is such a good listener, and great worrying about my concerns. She even helped me developing a plan for me to get better little by little. She doesn't push for you to change right away and she encourages you to be patient to make small decisions that will impact your life big time.
