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 couple or family 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 intergating the best of psychodymanic 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. Additonally, when working with couples and families, I employ strategies from the Imago relationship theory, the Gottman approach and various family structural/systems theories to reinforce family bonds and improve overall family functioning.

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.

Njideka is an amazing counselor! Her approach to therapy is warm and friendly, making you feel at home with her right from the very first session. She quickly builds rapport and is encouraging as you work through issues. I highly recommend Njideka to anyone seeking change in the way they perceive and interact in the world.

Our first day with our councilor was very important. She was able to help us see that we were both hurting and that she can help us address issues we have.
