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.

I recommend teen counseling to many people all the time because I didn’t know how bad of a place I was in until I started and while it has been hard, Nick has helped with every step and given me many tools to get through stuff. While I still have put bursts, it is calmed down a lot since working with and talking to Nick.

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.

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.

Nicholas and I have only had a couple of meetings. Already and I am starting to understand how to restructure my thoughts for healthier habits. I appreciate his patience and kind demeanor.

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.

Nicholas is the first counselor I’ve had who doesn’t judge me for my chaos and let’s me talk as much as I need to without making me feel like I talk too much. We stan Nicholas. Nicholas deserves a raise. Protect Nicholas at all costs.

Written by M.I. on Aug 26, 2021 after therapy with Nicholas for 2 weeks

It has only been a couple weeks, but I am really pleased with my therapist Nicholas. He has consistently communicated with me and checks in on how I am doing throughout the week before and after our sessions. I am very lucky to have someone who listens and gives much needed outside perspective. Highly recommend for sure.

Written by Y.A. on Aug 17, 2021 after therapy with Nicholas for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, sleeping disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, and compassion fatigue

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 is a great counselor. He actually listens to me and provides feedback. He has been very helpful and I am so glad that he is my counselor. I couldn’t have moved on without him.

He’s my very first therapist and I’m appreciating his insights on my life so far. He’s helping me and I adore it.

Written by J.U. on Jul 30, 2021 after therapy with Nicholas for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

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.
