Tozia (TAH-zah), is a Pre-Licensed Therapist with a Master of Education Specialist (Ed.S.) degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a trauma-informed focus from Middle Tennessee State University. Tozia’s journey toward becoming a therapist began in a small middle Tennessee town. Seeing the effects of trauma in his own family, he became inspired to heal his community from within.

Working from a multicultural lens, Tozia continues to work to reduce healthcare and mental health disparities for marginalized communities.
