PHEBE BRAKO-OWUSU (SHE/HER)

Founder & CEO

Phebe has always enjoyed hearing people's stories. She is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (WA state License #LF60607100, Washington DC #LMFT200001200) with over a decade of clinical experience, serving folx from different backgrounds and ethnicities. Many of the clients she serves have faced a wide range of traumas, have difficulties with adjusting to life outside their home countries, are trying to make sense of their identities, are struggling with work stress, communicating in their relationships/marriage, are having difficulties connecting with the people around them or are having trouble managing their everyday emotions. Although Ghana is her heartbeat, Phebe calls the 253 her home and loves laughing and dancing in supermarket aisles.
