Camila Robles, LMSW
Camila Robles, LMSW, is a clinical social worker with the Trauma Service on the School and Community Programs team at the Child Mind Institute.
While completing her master’s degree at New York University, Camila interned at Judith S. Kaye High School and Brooklyn Defender Services. At Judith S. Kaye High School, she met with students for individual counseling and groups and gained experience using cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), narrative therapy, and mindfulness practices. Camila focuses on using an anti-racist and anti-oppressive lens in her clinical sessions. At Brooklyn Defender Services, Camila worked with undocumented immigrants in the New York Immigrant Family Unity Project (NYIFUP) to provide clients with needed resources like health insurance, social services, and mental health services.
Prior to beginning her career as a social worker, Camila was a tenants’ rights paralegal. She helped clients apply for public assistance, advocated on behalf of tenants to landlords, and helped organize tenant associations. She now uses her legal experience and knowledge of a variety of social service systems to guide her work, and she takes a systems approach when working with individuals and groups.
Camila is a proud member of both Pi Sigma Alpha (National Political Science Honor Society) and Phi Alpha National Honor Society.
