Bio Dr. David Talavera earned his doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of Houston where he worked in the Culture, Risk, and Reliance Lab. His research focused on examining the impact of race/ethnicity and acculturation in health outcomes and anxiety. His broader interests included developing culturally sensitive interventions for those suffering from chronic illness and pain. Dr. Talavera completed an APA-accredited Psychology Internship at the Cambridge Health Alliance/Harvard Medical school. He primarily worked at the Latino Mental Health Clinic, but also had rotations in Primary Care, the Acute Psychological Services, and the Psychology Emergency Services.
