Nicolas Caballero Talavera, MSW, LCSW


Behavioral Health Therapist

Education & Training:

Masters in Social Work, CSU Sacramento

Professional Interests / Specialties:

I have experience working with issues of grief/loss, depression, anxiety, intimate partner violence, sexual trauma, problems with intimacy and communication, racial and sexual minority identity development concerns, transition-related concerns, and concerns related to traumatic experiences/complex trauma. When creating a therapeutic space, I often use strategies oriented in mindfulness practices and therapeutic interventions such as DBT and EMDR.

Spoken Languages:

English, Spanish

Philosophy of Care:

I commit to a collaborative relationship to create long-term goals and shorter-term objectives to achieve wellness. Through a structured therapeutic collaboration, we will create a space to explore concerns and to develop insight into relationships, thought, and behavior patterns. I take people seriously when they say they are suffering. I am not going to question your truth or your reality. I will, however, help you bring behaviors and attitudes back into alignment with your values and beliefs. Together we can create a space to welcome opportunity, awareness, and healing.

What I love about working at SNAHC:

I enjoy working at SNAHC because I have the opportunity to work with people from diverse backgrounds.
