About Me

Hello! My name is Nick Harper and I am a licensed clinical social worker in Kansas and Colorado, with almost 10 years of experience providing individual and group therapy. I utilize a strength-based, solution focused approach. You will be in the driver's seat regarding your goals. I will help you see how to capitalize on your strengths in order to feel better and more confident.

I strive to create a safe, nonjudgmental space that welcomes people of all diverse backgrounds and experiences. I focus on teaching individuals skill including setting healthy boundaries, learn to communicate their wants and needs, and cultivating healthy relationships with others in their life. I have experience treating a range of issues including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, substance use, and working with the LGBTQ+ individuals.

I have spent the past 9 years in a variety of settings, including: community mental health, substance use programs, inpatient psychiatric health, and most currently in an HIV/Sexual Health Clinic in Denver, Colorado.

You’ve already made the first step to a better life by seeking support. I look forward to being a part of your journey!

I am happy that Nick Harper responds to my emails in a timely manner. While I realize he is constrained by time, he gets the gist of what I am trying to convey and respond with things I need to think about. I cannot STAND therapists who parrot back to me what I say and stop there. I can look in a mirror for that. I want actionable steps and he gives that to me. So far, I am very pleased.
