Tutu Shotonwa, LMHC


Mujidat Tutu Shotonwa is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in NYC. Growing up, she was always intrigued by the mental health field and work dedicated to understanding human behavior. With strong encouragement (read: pressure) to go to medical school, Tutu started college as a pre-med student. However, after failing Biology, she became more aware of the importance of pursuing a career she loved.

Tutu graduated with Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania and received a Masters of Arts in Mental Health Counseling from Brooklyn College. She has experience supporting children, adolescents and adults with concerns including depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and eating disorders. Her work is motivated by the desire to provide culturally competent support/treatment within the Nigerian community. Everyone deserves to live a full life — and we can’t do that without addressing mental health.
