Nandini Jhawar portraitTherapeutic Style: My therapeutic style draws from cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic and humanistic perspectives to enhance physical and mental health. I use approaches that focus on student autonomy and agency, and I keep in mind their identity and cultural context as they seek to make life more fulfilling.
