My name is Krystal Robles, and I am a third year Doctoral student at the University of Denver. I am currently completing my third-year externship under the supervision of Dr. Caren Rhodes-Doudna as well as completing an externship with Front Range Psychological Services and Mountain Vista Psychology. I obtained my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at West Texas A&M University. I then worked as a caseworker with child welfare for five years before obtaining my Master of Arts in Forensic Psychology at the University of Denver.
I have experience working with children, youth, and families in many settings such as individual, group, in-home, and legal settings. I am currently in the perinatal – five mental health specialty as well as the substance use specialty and I’m interested in co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders, working with children, adolescents, and families who have experienced trauma, anxiety, and depression. I also sit on the board of directors at the Tennyson Center for Children, and am a part of their advising committee, as well as their trauma informed implementation team where I use my lived experiences and education to help advise and inform their practices.
