Family Wellness Associates, LLC has chosen to celebrate the memory of Joe Hernandez by establishing, in his honor, a scholarship for attendance to the annual NARME summit and the Family Wellness pre-summit training.


Dr. Hernandez was a Clinical Psychologist and Marriage and Family Therapist dedicated to serving Spanish-speaking individuals and families in California. His belief that everyone has the power to change and grow stronger using the Family Wellness skills directed much of his work.

He particularly enjoyed Forensic Psychology, working with immigrants, and advocating for the underserved.  In 2013 Joe reached a lifetime goal of writing a book for therapists, Family Wellness Skills: Quick Assessment and Practical Interventions for the Mental Health Professional published by Norton and Company.

With self-effacing humor, dedication, insight, and commitment to his community, Dr. Hernandez contributed to the betterment of everyone whose life he touched.
