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.

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 better help 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.
Nicolas was great at listening. And great at helping stay engaged in the process
He is awesome very professional
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
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.
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.

I appreciate how responsive he is and how he takes the time to acknowledge everything I’m saying. He’s a great listener.
So far he has been a major help in helping me with my wife and helping me with my anger
He is good to work with and is very helpful
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.
I find him to be a very understanding person an really cares about the issues ans concerns at hand.
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.
This was my first counseling experience and Nick is very pleasant and easy to talk to- I really appreciate his active listening and thought provoking questions.
Insightful - communicative - easy to open up to - Great match for me for counseling
