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.

My therapist Njideka Wiggins and I have been working together for about two months now. I have found my experience with her to be extremely helpful. She understands and comprehends my feelings, concerns, past trauma and current issues. I am a difficult patient as I am a talk therapist as well, she works with me in a way that I understand and don’t feel talked down too. It’s difficult for a therapist to treat another therapist, she is excellent. I am very grateful for her and her expertise.
