I’m Dr. Jennifer Fernandez, licensed Clinical Psychologist in San Francisco, and I
work with people who want to change their relationship with substances. If you find
that you’re using too much or if your use isn’t aligned with your values, this site and

Focusing on compassion vs. judgement, all my resources and teachings are
evidence-based and designed to help you change your relationship with substances.
Whether you’re moderating or abstaining from drugs and alcohol, you can find
