About me

Hello! My name is Candida Wiltshire and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of New Jersey, Rhode Island and 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 anxiety, depression 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.

Candida, is great and I love working with her. She personable, easy to communicate with and clearly loves what she does. She will never tell you what you want to hear- only the truth. I am glad to have found her!

Candida is a compassionate and wise person! As you can see I referred to her as a person and not a therapist, because she is genuine, authentic and humanistic individual and those characteristics and traits are not easy to find!

Written on Jan 08, 2021 after therapy with Candida for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, and anger management

I really valued my time working with Candida. She is both a skilled therapist and caring individual. When I first came to therapy, I was jaded by so many emotions and burdens, I didn't realize I was carrying so intimately. She was able to break all of my concerns down into manageable pieces and helped me build up my courage, strength and motivation to deal with them. She challenged me in gentle ways and supported me through difficult topics. She is gifted at her craft and I was fortunate to have the opportunity to work with her. I Highly Recommend!

Candida is great at meeting me where I am, and shaping my world view to be kinder to myself and others. She is so easy to talk to, and makes me feel so seen and heard when I talk about what's going on in my life.

Written on Aug 05, 2020 after therapy with Candida for 11 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety

Candida helped me through an immensely challenging period in my life. I worked with her for 9 months during what was the first time in my life that I had to battle anxiety. I felt as though Candida took to heart every single one of my concerns, never minimizing their content, while working with me to overcome them. She will always hold a dear place in my heart as the first counselor I’ve ever worked with, giving me the ability to accept my own mental health struggles and have security in an identity that includes this. She is empathetic, understanding, and warm. She exudes a softhearted nature and the charitable characteristics of a Christian. If you are looking for a compassionate faith-based counselor, Candida is for you! Thanks for everything!

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.

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!
