About Phebe

Daughter of Ghana | Wife | Mom | Sister | Friend | Therapist | Speaker

Phebe Brako-Owusu, LMFT, LMHC, NCC is a licensed therapist in the states of Washington and Washington DC.

(WA Licenses LF60607100; LH61482491 & DC License LMFT200001200)

Phebe approaches therapy from the stance that traditional therapy theories did not have Black, Brown, Indigenous and Other People of Color in mind when they were developed. So her therapeutic approach emphasizes different cultural interpretations of the issues her clients come to therapy with - sadness, worry, past traumas, work stressors, relationship conflict and the struggles of trying to build a home away from home.

In conjunction with her work as a therapist, Phebe is invested in supporting the upcoming generation of therapists as a Washington State Approved Supervisor.

She is the proud Founder and CEO of 253 Therapy and Consult, a group therapy practice based in University Place, Washington.
