Meet Clinical Extern, Camila Sluman
Camila Sluman | Clinical Extern
Camila is a graduate student in the Mental Health Counseling program at the University of Miami. She graduated with a major in psychology at Boston University and got her holistic health coach certification from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. She is profoundly passionate about health and wellness and how they connect to every aspect of a person’s life.
Camila has worked with women aged 17-55 for the past couple of years, helping them heal their relationship with food and their bodies and implementing healthy habits to take control of their health and well-being. She is fascinated by people’s relationship with sex and potentially helping them release the shame society encourages everyone to carry when discussing this topic.
Camila is supervised by Dr. Theresa Gallagher & Dr. Kate Balestrieri.

Camila's Approach to Therapy
Camila’s approach to therapy is holistic. Based on the idea that the mind, body, and spirit are connected, she will consider every area of her clients’ lives when helping them overcome their struggles. She believes everyone is doing their best with what they have, so she will provide the tools needed to create change. Camila will always focus on small, sustainable shifts, as opposed to big changes that do not last long. This helps her clients feel more empowered, accomplished, committed to their goals, and, most importantly, happy.
Camila believes sexual wellness is key for our mental health. When sex becomes a mindful, emotional experience, it becomes an activity people find joy and pleasure in, as opposed to shame and dread. Releasing our inhibitions and our preconceived ideas of what sex should look like brings us to the present moment. It connects us to our partner and to ourselves. It becomes a source of fulfillment, which eventually translates into other areas of our lives.
“Pleasure is self-interested. It’s about you: what you want, what you need, and how to get more of it. It’s everything we’re taught is too frivolous to pursue seriously as adults. And yet when we experience genuine arousal, desire, and pleasure, those are the moments when we feel most connected and alive.”
