Nick Strouse

Lead Staff

Nick grew up in Northern West Virginia, playing lacrosse and exploring the outdoors with his family. His mother is a therapist, and from a young age taught him the importance of care and compassion for others. His father is a contractor, and taught him the value of hard work. As an adolescent, he worked as a lifeguard, helped his father on various construction jobs, and taught lacrosse lessons on the side. After high school, Nick chose to attend a community college in Baltimore Maryland to play lacrosse and then continued his education at Fairmont State University in West Virginia.

After college Nick decided to spend a few years in the mountains of Colorado where he could satisfy his love for the outdoors. He enjoys snowboarding, climbing, backpacking, kayaking, and mountain biking, among many other things.

Nick moved to the Northwest in 2015 to begin his career helping others in a therapeutic environment. He spent a few years at a therapeutic boarding school in Montana where he worked with young adults and assisted with the outdoor program. He learned there that guiding and teaching young people is best achieved by developing a solid relationship while still holding strong boundaries. He finds it very fulfilling and rewarding to witness the personal growth progression an individual makes from entering the program to graduating.

Nick was drawn to Innercept by the Young Adult Transition Program. He is excited to help guide young adults to make good choices, thereby yielding a happy and healthy life. The Transition Program allows him to incorporate his compassion for others while utilizing his own life experience and struggles to guide others in a positive direction.
