We had the good fortune of connecting with Dr. Jeff Rocker and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dr. Jeff, we’d love to start by asking you about lessons learned. Is there a lesson you can share with us?
The most important lesson I have learned as an entrepreneur is that “your network determines your net worth”. Building your professional circle can open many doors for you if you put yourself in the right positions to meet people. Also, I recommend every person who is interested in having a successful business learn the importance of branding and marketing themselves. There are too many resources out there at the tip of your fingers that many people fail to use. Also, another lesson I learned is that do not miss on an opportunity of a life time because of life circumstances. Just find a way to make it work and do whatever it takes to reach your goals. Its ok to create your own lane to greatness.

What should our readers know about your business?
With a high percentage of my clientele being high profile clients and my willingness to speak on national platforms about mental health has given me the notary in this industry as Celebrity Therapist Jeff Rocker. I have been nationally recognized for my innovative techniques and approaches towards troubled teens, interpersonal relationship partner conflicts, and professionals struggling with work-life balance. Also, I worked with clients with debilitating addiction issues as I offer in-home therapeutic services. With years of experience working with clients going through individual, relationship, and family issues, I have provided therapeutic services to clients from as young as three years old to individuals in their late adulthood. Over the years, I have organized lectures and various events in the community, including excursions and retreats for couples to improve their communication and gain a better understanding of each other. I have many years of experience working with athletes such as those in the NFL, NBA, and MLB as well as clients in the Movie, Music, and Entertainment Industry.

As the CEO of How We See It, Inc. I have established a team of diverse individuals that are changing the world’s perspective on mental health one community at a time. My team does multiple outreach programs for these communities to help dispel the myths of therapy and remove the stigma around mental health. One of the outreach programs that I have created is called Hip Hop Therapy. This is an interactive workshop done in high schools and colleges all across the country. My goal is for students to have a safe space to express themselves in an unconventional manner. Growing up with a musical background, this program is one that truly resonates with me on a personal level.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Listen, I grew up by the beach so I will always pick places like Venice and Santa Monica Beach as places to go and have a good time. Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to give a shoutout to the Late Great Kobe “Bean” Bryant as his philosophy towards reaching greatness has inspired me to reach different heights in my career. The “Mamba Mentality” has gotten me through a lot of obstacles that comes along with being a successful business owner. Also, I would like to give another shoutout to The Great Bethune Cookman University for preparing me to deal with all types of life circumstances. I always say ” If you can make it at a HBCU, you can make it anywhere in life”.
