Our Story

“What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide  what type of difference you want to make.” 

~ Jane Goodall 

Jennifer De La Roca embarked on her journey that would change countless lives. It all began with a passion for healing and a vision for  hope. 

Jennifer was called to Psychology and Social Work after experiencing childhood abuse. She has always wanted to provide the help to others that she never received as a child due to her trauma. She had always wanted to help people and to figure out how to heal from her  experiences. She has had several years of therapy herself to heal from  her trauma and set her on a path of empowerment. Yet, her moment of  clarity came while waiting for someone in a therapy session, when a  voice within her said, “This is what you are to do.” 

Once she received that clarity, she switched from International  Development at the University of Guelph to Psychology at York  University. Using her traumatic past as a springboard instead of holding  her back, she transformed her experience by graduating with a  Specialized Honours degree in Psychology, armed with the knowledge  and determination to make a difference in the lives of others. 

With her newfound expertise and dedication, Jennifer opened up her  home office. For six years, she welcomed clients into this safe haven,  providing them with the guidance and support. 

To gain a greater ability to help clients she embarked on a journey of  further education, enrolling in the Masters program at the University of  Windsor.

With her Masters in Social Work in hand, Jennifer moved her practice to  a medical clinic, where she continued to touch lives and foster healing.  However, Covid-19 brought about an unexpected turn of events forcing Roca Counselling to adapt, shifting to Telehealth and offering video and  phone sessions. This shift provided greater flexibility and convenience to  clients, allowing them to access support from the comfort of their  homes. Jennifer and her team quickly realized the value of this new  model and chose to embrace it. 

“Your purpose in life is to find your purpose and give  your whole heart and soul to it.” 

~ Buddha 

And so, Roca Counselling continues to evolve, guided by Jennifer's  unshakable dedication to her clients and her belief in their potential for  growth and resilience. The story of Roca Counselling became a  testament to the power of one person's calling to make a profound  impact on the world. 

Today, Roca Counselling stands as a beacon of hope, thanks to Jennifer's  unwavering commitment and her willingness to embrace change for the  betterment of her clients. Her journey from a profound calling to a  thriving practice is a testament to the transformative power of healing  and the pursuit of one's true purpose.

Testimonials

“ Maria helped me tremendously on understanding what grieving is all about, how to deal with my emotions at times when I am feeling so lost.

Talking to Maria was so easy, telling her how I feel, and the anger I feel inside.

 

Everything that Maria shared to me on how to deal with my loss, I will apply into my day to day living. I am moving forward to feeling better and make my Mom proud of me.”  - E. K.
