Francesca Owoo, Ph.D
Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Licensed Mental Health Counselor
My clients usually call me Dr. O or Dr. Fran. My background spans over 15 years of working with marginalized communities in various settings, including psychiatric and medical facilities, community mental health agencies, university clinics, group private practices, and schools.
I hail from the South Bronx (🎶South South Bronx🎶), where I was born and raised, to immigrant parents from Ghana, West Africa. Let me stop you before you even ask, no I do not speak Twi and yes, I am bicultural.
Growing up, I witnessed how family and couple dynamics can change when a loved one faces illness. My own family has dealt with the challenges of chronic conditions like sickle cell disease and cancer.
During my doctoral journey, I faced my own health battles – diagnosed with fibroids, stage 4 endometriosis, and adenomyosis, leading to multiple surgeries. These personal experiences with chronic illness and caregiving have fueled my dedication to helping couples, families, and individuals facing adversity.
