Is there any good talk therapy that will help me with sleep terrors?

In brief: Probably not

Night terrors (nightmares) occur at a certain level, or 'stage', of sleep.
Changing the level of sleep (to a deeper level) can be helpful. See a sleep medicine specialist (md or dds) for more information and a sleep study to determine your sleep levels.

In brief: Night terrors

Great question and yes.
There is very good data with guided imagry that can help with autonomic activation caused by night terrors. There is evidence that hypnosis (even self administered) can also be very helpful.
