Nicholas Crisp


About Me

Nicholas Crisp is an experienced social worker who has worked in a variety of roles and capacity. Having begun his career as a medical support assistant for the Indian Health Service, Nick quickly developed a passion for counseling and working with people. This desire to help people saw Mr. Crisp apply to the George Warren Brown School of Social Work at Washington University for a Master of Social Work, which he studied with a concentration on the mental health of American Indian and Alaskan Natives. Currently, Nick is seeking opportunities to work with American Indians, Alaskan Natives and other populations that are often marginalized.
Nick is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, holding his Social Worker license through the State of Oklahoma and Nevada respectfully. He started his career as a Social Worker working with dually diagnosed adult populations. In his five years of practice, he has worked with a myriad of populations, with his primary focus and passion being with dually and co-occurring disorders, while maintaining a caseload specialization in adolescent, youth and family systems. Other areas of specialization include cognitive behavioral therapy, gender/cultural informed care, and the application of solution focused and family systems. Key areas of focus include depression and anxiety related disorders, specifically regarding self-harm and crisis, family systems, anger management, behavioral issues, and substance-related/mental health disorders.
Some of Mr. Crisp’s weaknesses include propensities for workaholism and perfectionism. His strengths include a strong work ethic, and an understanding of the importance of flexibility, diversity, and balance. He also believes in teamwork, an aptitude further honed by his experience playing NCAA football as a tight end.
