Anneliese Singh, PhD, LPC is an award-winning social justice scholar and community organizer. She is a Professor and Associate Dean of the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the College of Education at the University of Georgia, and a program faculty in the counselor education and supervision doctoral program. Her research, practice, and advocacy explores the resilience and liberation experiences of trans people, people of color, survivors of trauma, South Asian immigrants, and social justice and empowerment training, and she has over 100 publications among these areas. Anneliese has co-authored texts on trans and nonbinary counseling (A Clinician’s Guide to Gender-Affirming Care and Affirmative Counseling and Psychological Practice with Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Clients), in addition to the Queer and Transgender Resilience Workbook and the Racial Healing Handbook: Practical Activities to Help You Challenge Privilege, Confront Systemic Racism, and Engage in Collective Healing.

In 2009, Anneliese co-founded the Georgia Safe Schools Coalition to work on the intersection of heterosexism, racism, sexism, and other oppressions in Georgia schools. She also founded the Trans Resilience Project to translate findings from her nearly 20 years of research on the resilience that trans and nonbinary people develop across the lifespan and across multiple identities to navigate societal oppression. Anneliese is currently working on a NIH-funded longitudinal multi-site (Atlanta, New York, San Francisco) grant investigating trans identity development, risk, and resilience, as well as a collaborative PCORI grant developing a southeastern trans research and education network.

Anneliese has worked on several national competencies and guidelines projects for the American Counseling Association (ACA Multicultural and Social Justice Counseling Competencies, ACA Transgender Competencies, ACA LGBQQIAA Competencies). She is a Fellow of both ACA, and serves on multiple editorial boards. Her TEDx Talk, titled “Transgender Liberation is for Everybody,” explored gender liberation for cisgender and transgender people. Anneliese passionately believes in and strives to live by the ideals of Dr. King’s beloved community, as well as Audre Lorde’s reminder that “without community, there is no liberation.”
