Hey there! My name is Nicholas Pantages and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Missouri. I have been practicing in the field for five years, working with individuals who are overcoming depression, anxiety, stress, loss, and severe mental illness. My specialty areas primarily focus on mood disorders, aging, and managing life changes and interpersonal relationships. Therapeutic modalities I rely on heavily include Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. I have been trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing as well.
I'm passionate about working as a team and building off of your strengths to identify paths that can be taken to attain new goals, confront concerns head-on, and radically accept what is out of our control. I think the most important aspects of therapy focus around developing rapport with the individuals I see and supporting them on their journey forward in life.
This is never easy and change takes time. Let's collaborate to address your obstacles, taking steps in the right direction to learn from experience and create a more satisfying sense of self and the potential for a more enjoyable tomorrow!

Nick is amazing. He’s great at helping me figure out what I want without telling me what that is.
He is really supportive
I value and appreciate his insight, knowledge and I can tell he cares.
Nicholas is a great councillor. He has taken the time to touch base even on the weekends to see how I am doing and how I'm progressing. His approach at listening to what I need to get out before he offers any advice or suggestions is precisely what works for me. His compassion and empathy along with his deep genuine desire to help get me back on track is greatly appreciated and respected. He is a valuable asset to anyone who is looking to be heard and to feel safe and valued as an individual.
