<Nick Harper


Nick originally hails from the Tarheel State of North Carolina. He completed his bachelor's degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in Political Science. He graduated with his Masters in Social Work from Columbia University School of Social Work in New York, NY. After he graduated, he worked in Missoula, Montana as a Psychotherapist.

Nick is a Licensed Clinical Social worker as well as a licensed Clinical Addictions Counselor. He has practiced social work for approximately seven years. Nick currently serves as the Unit Director for the Inpatient Psychiatric Facility (BHS) at St. Catherine's Hospital in Garden City, KS.

Nick became interested in therapy since his mom became a therapist almost 25 years ago. From that point on Nick knew that he would be part of the helping profession one day and help people understand more about mental health and helping them reach a better quality of life. Nick is passionate about working with the LGBTQ population in rural populations as well as those dealing with substance abuse, depression, anxiety, and other mental health challenges. When Nick is not working, he loves to spend time with his family and friends, singing, and teaching as well.
