Phalande Jean, LMFT, LGPC, CCTP

Preferred Name: Phalande

About Me

I am a fat, Black Caribbean, nonbinary femme therapist, multi-disciplinary artist, entrepreneur. I founded Phalasophy, LLC: a private practice in Washington, DC serving the DMV area. I believe an individual’s story stores their pain, power, and liberation. Therapy, coaching or collaboration with me is about being intentional, mindful, and creative with your healing. I combine traditional talk therapy, body-focused somatics, and expressive therapies (art, music, and poetry) to support your wellness.

Education & Experience

I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) and an Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) trained Psychotherapist. Working with me is about being whole. My experiences at all levels of mental health from hospitals, outpatient, inpatient, residential, group practice, and now a private practice, have given me a well-rounded insight into the transformative power of connection, love, storytelling and therapy.
