About me

Greetings and thank you for viewing my profile. I'm Njideka (In-jah-day-ka) Wiggins, a licensed mental health counselor (LMHC) located in Wilmington, Delaware

Counseling is my second career, after 26 successful years in corporate America. I have been a practicing therapist, working with children, individuals and families for the past 16 years.

I am a client centered therapist, meaning I believe each client comes to this process with an unique experience and way of being in the world. As such, I have a holistic approach to counseling, pulling from many theories and modalities, but predominately focused on integrating the best of psychodynamic theory (helping my client see and understand their patterns of emotions, thoughts and behaviors) with cognitive behavioral theory (solution-focused methods) and systems theory (how one exists in the larger world) to create lasting, characterlogical change.

I enjoy working with clients that are seeking support to heal from unresolved trauma; mend family and other relational conflicts; manage depression, anxiety and ADHD challenges; navigate life/career cycle issues; overcome caregiver/compassion fatigue and grief. I recognize and respect the courage it takes to embark upon a journey to emotional wellness and I am humbled and honored to bear witness to your walk.

Thank you again, for allowing me the opportunity of your consideration . Should you have any questions about my therapeutic process or how we would work together to achieve your goals, please feel free to ask.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Njideka Wiggins. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Like everyone before me has written, Ms. Wiggins is helpful, wise, caring and personable. Her insight has helped me through a difficult transition and I would recommend her to friends and family.

To be able to sit down with a therapist and connect for the first time made me very comfortable. Njideka gives tips and different perspectives that allows me to go about everyday life differently. Very personable and she listens!! I thoroughly enjoy my sessions.

Njideka has been the missing piece of guidance i’ve been needing for a long time. No matter how much work I do on my own, she provides the remaining guidance that lifts me up every session. Her insight provides different perspectives that allow me to understand myself on deeper levels. The more I understand myself, the healthier my mind becomes. Njideka has been a wonderful, insightful, structured, and empathetic guide on my journey.
