Stacy Hernandez is the owner and founder of Affinity Counseling. She is a Licensed Professional Counselor practicing in the Knoxville area, originally from Georgetown, Texas.

Stacy is a certified in Acceptance and Integration therapy. She graduated from Hardin Simons University in Abilene, Texas where she received her MA in Family Psychology. Stacy truly believes their must be a collaboration that takes  place where, she and the client, will decide on a specific plan that fits their needs. This may include deciding what has kept you from achieving your goals, by using AAIT methods. Together, Stacy and her client, will be putting pieces together to rebuild your masterpiece of your true self.

Once we can identify our limiting behaviors and beliefs a new sense of freedom can emerge.  Stacy wants to be able to help her clients with this by providing a warm, non judgmental space, where they can feel free to express all their pain and struggles. Stacy wants you to know, change is about interrupting the habits and patterns that no longer serve us. As you begin your journey with Stacy, she wants you to understand what you’d like to be free from, free to do and free to become the best version of yourself.

A special note from Stacy:

This work is very important to me having faced many struggles and transitions in my own life. My ability to empathize and have compassion for my clients comes from a history of knowing what rough roads are like. It is important for me to provide a safe and confidential environment where teenagers and adult woman can discuss difficult times while growing and stepping into their next journey of life. I have been married to my husband for 22 years and we have 2 children, ages 15 and 18. Our extended family includes 3 dogs. In my spare time I love to spend time with my family, travel and ride my scooter with my husband and watch movies. I look forward to working with you and can’t wait to me you!!
