Anne Uilizio

Pre-Licensed Psychotherapist

Pronouns: she/her/hers

Each of us has a unique experience and perspective to share with the world. Often, however, 
society and others’ ideas of who we should be shape the stories we tell about ourselves. As 
your therapist, I will work with you to reclaim your story. I primarily operate from a relational
cultural lens: I believe people cannot be separated from their environments, and that 
connection and disconnection profoundly impact how we see ourselves and the world around 
us. Most importantly, I will design our work together based on what you want from the 
counseling experience. 
I bring a strong focus on social justice to my counseling practice. We will work together to understand how power, privilege, and marginalization impact our relationships with ourselves 
and with others. Awareness of our breath, body, and surroundings can help us develop a deeper 
appreciation and love for ourselves and the world around us. These practices can also help 
process trauma and reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. I also believe in the healing power of 
nature through its positive impact on mental health. Incorporating nature in sessions looks 
different from client to client, and I will work with you to accommodate your abilities, comfort, 
and preferences for incorporating nature into our sessions. 
The path that led me to counseling was non-linear and drew upon various experiences from 
different fields. It began with writing: journalism, technical writing, and grant writing taught me 
the power of stories and sharing them with others. My time spent as an outdoor educator 
solidified my passion for ecotherapy and working with adolescents. Finally, my experience as a 
fitness instructor helped me develop a holistic definition of health and helps me center the 
mind-body connection in my work with clients.
