Candida Wiltshire

(MSW, LCSW, LISW-CP)

About Me

Hello! My name is Candida Wiltshire and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of New Jersey and a Licensed Independent Social Worker- Clinical Practice in South Carolina. I obtained my Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore and my Master of Social Work from Monmouth University. I work with individuals who have a variety of concerns including depression, mood disorders, and issues related to identity and self-esteem. I combine various therapeutic approaches to meet the needs of every individual, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy and client-centered therapy. Being a woman of color, I understand the stigma of mental health within the minority community and the necessity of services to address complex trauma. I believe that our work together should be guided by your comfort level and I will be with you along your journey to wholeness.

Life can be overwhelming and challenging. My goal is to provide a safe space where individuals can develop practical solutions and tools for life. Taking the first step and reaching out for help demonstrates a strength within yourself that you can build upon. Together, we will identify areas of weakness and through exploration find healthy solutions to your problems. I believe in you; it’s time for you believe in you too.

I look forward to speaking with you soon.

I just recently started counseling with Candida Wiltshire and so far, I am feeling good about it. I think I made the right decision to go to counseling and I am happy that I was paired with a therapist who is truly compassionate, insightful, and challenges me to think more deeply about various aspects of myself to help me understand myself better and find healing. I truly believe that I am on the path to healing with Candida.

She is amazing. Amazing mind, spirit, energy, and gives amazing counsel. Working with her these last couple of weeks has been a pleasure and I see positive changes from the decision as well.

Candida helped me through a most difficult time in my life. Through my grief and anger she helped guide me as I learned how to navigate my own coping mechanisms and self love and forgiveness for myself. She is so kind and soothing. Her energy and kind words are so inspirational and she’s always there when you need her. Thank you so much Candida for everything!

I have only just begun working with Candida but she has already helped me get back to feeling like myself. She is patient, encouraging, understanding and really helps me challenge the negative self talk I find myself stuck in. I'm very grateful to be working with Candida and look forward to our sessions.

I have only been working with Candida for 3 weeks, but I already want to commend her ability as a counselor. This is my first experience with therapy and she has been encouraging, welcoming, and compassionate as I embark on this journey to better my mental health. I applaud her empathy as a woman and her empowering nature as a counselor. I am excited to continue to work through my issues with Candida by my side, because she makes me feel like I can overcome them. I highly recommend her!
