Kamila Marrero-González, Psy.D., L.P.

Staff Psychologist


I completed an undergraduate degree in Psychology and Mental Health in University of Puerto Rico, Cayey Campus. I received my PsyD and MA in Clinical Psychology (APA-accredited) from Carlos Albizu University, San Juan Campus. I relocated to Oregon in 2016 to complete my postdoctoral training in Pacific Psychology and Comprehensive Health Clinic. During my psychology residency, I worked primarily with undocumented individuals and learned first-hand the importance of providing culturally sensitive clinical services. In 2019, I relocated to Flagstaff, Arizona where I was able to work more closely with college students and better understand the challenges and complexities faced by undergraduate and graduate students. I visited Colorado in Summer 2021 and fell in love with the scenery and endless mountain views. I was able to relocate to Colorado at the end of 2021 and have enjoyed all there is to do and places to explore.  

Current Roles

As a staff psychologist, I provide individual and couples counseling. I aim to offer additional clinical services here at the Counseling Center, such as co-facilitating groups, provide and support with triage/on-call services, engaging in outreach events, and providing clinical supervision. 

Therapeutic & Supervision Approaches

My priority both as a therapist and clinical supervisor is to create an environment that feels safe, inclusive, and supportive for clients and supervisees. I have worked with cultural and clinically diverse clients which has positively impacted my ability to be culturally responsive. I continue to look for training opportunities to facilitate personal and professional growth and encourage peers, supervisees, and clients to do the same. My clinical training centers on the principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. During my psychology residency, I was able to learn about the fundamentals of Attachment Theory and how to integrate these principles while working with people who have experienced trauma. Trauma informed care and providing culturally sensitive services are my two main goals while working with clients. I also implement strategies and techniques from Feminist Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy.

About Me

I was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico (PR) and I am a fully bilingual (Spanish and English speaking) psychologist. I very much enjoy traveling and have been extra creative during the pandemic while minding restrictions. I have a 15-month-old Aussie-Shepard mix dog who brings me tons of joy and has plenty of energy for the entire household! During the weekends I love exploring new places, taking pictures of the scenery and my dog, trying new restaurants, and spending quality time with friends and family. I’m a dedicated fan of reality TV and a hardcore fan of Golden Girls!
