Nikki Abeleda, LCSW
Licensed Clinical Social Worker #118232
Greetings! I’m Nicole “Nikki” Abeleda, embracing she/they/siya pronouns. Proudly, I’m a First-Generation Queer Filipinx residing on the ancestral lands of Nisenan and Miwok, currently recognized as Sacramento, CA.
I hold the role of a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, earning my Social Work degree from California State University, Sacramento, and my Masters of Social Work (MSW) from Boston College, specializing in Clinical Mental Health and Neuroscience. With 8 years of direct service experience, I’ve been devoted to supporting children, adults, and the LGBTQIA+ community.
Beyond my therapeutic practice, I am a passionate community organizer advocating for social justice. My activism journey has shaped my perspective, fostering an intersectional lens grounded in Feminist and Social Justice Theory, Transformative Justice, Restorative Justice, Ethnic Studies, Decolonial Practices, and Trauma Informed Care.
As a Co-Founder of Sacramento Filipinx LGBTQIA+, a collective uplifting Queer and Transgender Filipinx members, I strive to amplify visibility within the community. Your visibility and voice matter. If you’re navigating the intricate intersection of mental health and identity as an LGBTQIA+, BIPOC individual, remember you’re not alone. My ideal client is someone prepared to embark on a journey of self-discovery and healing. I collaborate with those recognizing the significance of their unique narrative, eager to (re)imagine their space in the world.
Whether you’re grappling with challenges in a system not designed with your needs in mind or seeking a supportive space to explore your authentic self, I’m here for you. Let’s co-create a path that honors your experiences, amplifies your voice, and nurtures growth. Together, we can navigate the complexities with creativity, resilience, and authenticity.
