Dr. Michael Becerra

Professor Nomad Dr. Michael Becerra counselor educator entrepreneur Barranquilla Colombia

I’m a mental health counselor, educator, and entrepreneur living in Barranquilla since May 2012. Born and raised in Texas, I set off on my adventure after deciding to resign from my tenure-seeking job as an assistant professor, and after having lost my mom to cancer the summer before.

Since living in Colombia, Ive been fortunate to have met my partner, guest lectured a class on sexual addiction at one of the city’s medical schools, and judged oral defenses of students pursuing masters degrees in marriage and family therapy. But what I’m most proud of at the moment is my small business, Barranquilla Life, cofounded with a fellow North American where we create and publish content about life in Colombia’s Caribbean capital.

My professional services are varied. I provide online counseling via Skype as well as provide support to doctoral students who are completing their dissertation. I am available to provide presentations to schools and businesses relating to mental health.  I’m also a travel guide if you are thinking about visiting Northern Colombia. I invite you to check out the “Professional Services” page to learn about the freelance services I provide to the public. You can find me on Linkedin.
