Dr. Michael Becerra

LCPC, LPC

About Me

I am a counselor licensed in Georgia, New Hampshire, and New Jersey with more than ten years of experience working in the community, school districts, college campuses and vocational rehabilitation agencies. I have worked with clients regarding disability, stress and anxiety, immigration, mens issues, career and life transitions, relationships, motivation and confidence issues. I also spent six years living in Colombia working with intercultural heterosexual and gay couples, as well as US expats and volunteers orientating to life abroad.

My counseling style is laid back and interactive. My humanistic theoretical framework for therapy is shaped by Adlerian psychology, which is one of growth and social interest. I also work with solution-focused and developmental approaches to meet your individual needs.

Alfred Adler believed that mentally healthy people strive to master their basic life tasks that represent the challenges of work, friendship, love/intimacy. Your motivation to seek therapy demonstrates it. Count on my support and empowerment when you are ready to take that step.

I look forward to working with you!
