Hello! My name is Conicka and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 13 years of experience in the field of mental health and substance abuse. I work with individuals with a wide range of concerns including depression, mood disorders, family relations issues, substance use disorders, and co-occurring disorders. I combine different therapeutic approaches based on client's presenting concerns, goals, and motivation, such as, cognitive-behavioral, brief therapy, mindfulness, client-centered, solution-focused therapy. I would be a good match for anyone interested in a counselor of color and/or one who provides a safe space for all individuals.
My background consists of working in substance use and addiction, mental and behavioral health, military and veteran specific issues as well as specializing in services for individuals with suicidal ideation.
My philosophy is as simple at this quote from the late Kobe Bryant, “the most important thing is to try and inspire people so that they can be great at whatever they want to do.” Therapy is a collaborative process and I will assist you to learn, grow, and make positive changes that can result in a more fulfilling life. I partner with you to assist with your journey towards health and happiness.

I enjoy talking to Conicka Wiggins. She is being a great help for me. She is helping me sort out my feeling and emotions. She has given me work sheets to do to help me sort things out.
When she first became my counselor I was way more messed up in the head than I am now. I still have a long way to go but i am sure she will help me through it all.
