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.

He is a blessing in my life. When I am discouraged, he encourages. When I need to vent, he listens. When I am anxious and don’t know what to do, he supports and talks me through it. I cannot say enough how thankful I am for his help and care.

Nicholas Crisp is an amazing person through and through, he has been my therapist for almost a year; he has helped me to become a better person today than who I was yesterday. He is professional, relatable, and personable; that he is easy/comfortable to talk to. I have seen an actual change in my everyday life by him being an example of being a better version of myself that he is able to pull out of me. He is an amazing communicator, and to communicate well you have to know how to listen. He has definitely listened to my concerns and helped me realize my true potential. Thank you Nicholas for being here for me and for others.

Written by D.E. on Dec 08, 2021 after therapy with Nicholas for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

He is an excellent listener. He communicates back what we had said to make sure he understands and has several solutions to the issue so we don't feel like there can be only 1. I am really really happy with this therapist. Highly recommend.

I like the way Nicholas asks me questions that make me think and process things fully in order to answer the question. He doesn't agree nor disagree with the way I feel but is empathetic and helps me to think about things in more then one way.

Written by A.N. on Nov 03, 2021 after therapy with Nicholas for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and adhd

Nicholas is a great listener, does his best to see if an issue maybe has a root in the past. Quicker responses to questions in the session would be nice, but I understand he might have quite a lot of clients. I have never felt ignored or neglected so he is overall doing great

Empathetic

Written by J.E. on Oct 27, 2021 after therapy with Nicholas for 4 months on issues concerning relationship

Nicholas is awesome, my partner and I have been meeting with him for a few months now and he has been a tremendous help to our relationship. He helps my partner and I communicate with each other and helps us find solutions when we are struggling with communication and relationship issues. Nicholas has also helped me talk about some of my own personal issues that affect my relationship with my partner and I feel safe and able to share with the knowledge I am being heard. Overall I think my partner and I always feel like we walk away from our sessions in a better place than where we started and we are very thankful we were matched with him.

Written by S.T. on Oct 06, 2021 after therapy with Nicholas for 2 months on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, eating disorders, and self esteem

I've been working with Nicholas for about two months and I really appreciate his focus and attention to detail. I can't be an easy case (some days I literally have no words) and I am grateful for his persistence and work ethic.

Written by E.L. on Oct 05, 2021 after therapy with Nicholas for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, eating disorders, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, and coaching

Nick is great. He is somehow able to listen to me ramble until I forget what we're doing and he'll still know how to get back on topic.

It has only been a couple weeks, but I am really pleased with my therapist Nicholas.

Being new to therapy, my first interaction with a therapist was not the greatest but Nick restored my faith in therapy. He is not just a great listener but he also gives you a lot of thought provoking feedback. He helped me so much and though I worked with him for a short period of time, if I get the opportunity I would 100% work with him again. Thank you Nick!

Nicholas has helped enormously already and we’ve only had 2 sessions. He made us feel comfortable from the start. We each have room to share and communicate, he provides a fair balance with that. We are discussing emotionally charged topics but it feels very safe to tackle them in his presence. We are so grateful.
