Ms. Bhalai earned her Masters in Social Work from Barry University in 1999 and became licensed in Florida in 2019. Ms. Bhalai has had over 20 years of working with children and adults in several agencies that have impacted her journey as a mental health clinician. She completed two internships that have profoundly impacted her practice. Her first internship was as a Victim Witness Counselor with the State Attorney’s Office, 17th Judicial District (Broward County, FL), in which she expanded her knowledge in the areas of crisis counseling, victim’s rights, the court system, and the overall impact of victimization on mental health functioning. Ms. Bhalai worked with victims of Domestic Violence, Sexual Abuse and Assault, Child Abuse, Murder, and other felony crimes to provide mental health support and interventions as their cases progressed within the court system. It was through this internship that Ms. Bhalai realized her passion for working with clients who have experienced trauma. Her second internship solidified her work as a therapist with a focus on trauma. Landing an internship with UM/Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Department, Ms. Bhalai became knowledgeable in mental health clinical interventions in the areas of trauma, child abuse, sexual abuse, and medical social work.
Upon completion of her degree, Ms. Bhalai continued to develop her overall practice, fine-tuning her clinical skills and comprehensive practice in several agencies including the State Attorney’s Office - 17th Judicial District, Broward Sheriff’s Office, and Broward County Public Schools. Recognizing that as a working mother her ability to balance her career with her family was critical, she landed a position as a School Counselor working with adolescents of diverse backgrounds. As a School Counselor, Ms. Bhalai became informed of the education system, the importance of school counseling to decrease student mental health concerns, and educational disabilities including assessment and diagnosis. Earning her Specialist Degree in School Counseling, Ms. Bhalai, continued adding to her toolbox of skills, knowledge, and treatment modalities. She also served as a School Counseling Director, School Social Worker, Dependency Court Liaison, and Supervisor where she continued providing educationally based clinical services to students and families in individual, families, and group therapy sessions.
In 2015, Ms. Bhalai realized that her journey called for her seeking clinical licensure and she established her part-time practice providing therapy to adults and children experiencing mental health difficulties. She sharpened her diagnosis of DSM IV disorders and the development of treatment plans geared to decreasing her client's symptoms. In 2020, after two decades of working with hundreds of clients, Nan launched her teletherapy practice, Eudaimonia, The Art of Healing. Using evidence-based practices such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and tenets of positive psychology, Nan guarantees to listen to your needs in a non-judgmental, empathic manner, work with you to help you to identify areas of growth, help you create your goals for change, and help you build your resiliency toolbox for change in a safe, confidential manner.
