Hello! My name is Stacy Hernandez. Born and raised in Fort Lauderdale, I relocated to Tallahassee to attend Florida State University and pursue a degree in Sociology (go ‘Noles!). During that time, I met and married my husband and have lived there for most of my adult life. I recently packed up everything, and moved to the Jacksonville area with my husband, our newborn son, and our cat, Goldie. I am excited to begin our new journey in the First Coast and thrilled to be part of the Family Therapy Associates of Jacksonville team.
My passion for helping couples originated in childhood. I have been fortunate to see healthy (although not perfect) models of marriage all of my life. My parents were married for 23 years before my father passed away, my sister has been married over 30 years, and my husband and I are nearing 20 years of marriage.
Perhaps you didn’t see or experience a healthy role model of marriage in your life, and as a result, you might not be sure how to create that in your own relationship. Or, maybe you have healthy models of relationships, but are struggling to experience that in your own marriage. There’s good news! You can learn the skills of how to communicate better, resolve conflict, and experience a happy, healthy relationship. You can increase your emotional, physical and spiritual connection with your partner, and get your needs met. You deserve for your love to last forever. I can help guide you to a relationship.
