Nicolas Caballero Talavera, MSW, LCSW
Behavioral Health Therapist
Education & Training:
Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, CSU San Bernardino
Masters in Social Work, CSU Sacramento
Certified EMDR Therapist
Professional Interests / Specialties:
As a certified EMDR therapist, I have worked extensively with clients facing various psychological challenges such as grief/loss, depression, anxiety, intimate partner violence, sexual trauma, intimacy and communication issues, racial and sexual minority identity development concerns, gender-affirming-related issues, and complex trauma. When creating a therapeutic environment, I prioritize mindfulness practices and incorporate evidence-based interventions like Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Brainspotting, and EMDR to facilitate healing, self-awareness, and resilience.
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.
