Adoring humankind, Lark is a veteran in helping others. She has coached on an ongoing basis hundreds of people, some long-term and others short-term. Lark has started and lead groups and coordinated and directed retreats.
For many years, Lark has been working with inmates seeking help, leading voluntarily-attended support groups. She is a passionate supporter of Drug Court in Lake County. Experiencing the multidisciplinary team in action is impressive, and Lark is grateful to have been a member. This drug court program has had a nearly 80% success rate with a majority of clients!
