Donnie Fenton

(M.Ed, LPC, NCC)

About Me

My name is Donnie and I have 10 years experience as a Christian Counselor in Texas. I am a licensed and ordained minister, Licensed Professional Counselor, and a National Certified Counselor. I enter every session with a non-judgmental approach and with the goal to help you to reach your goals.

I have experience working with people ages 5 - 85. My career has provided me the opportunity to work in schools, correctional facilities, non- profit organizations, churches and homeless shelters. I enjoy working with people from any and every background on issues that include, but are not limited to: Stress, Anxiety, Depression, Relationships, Pre-Marriage, Marriage, Spiritual, Career, Anger Management, Grief and Addictions. These experiences have fanned the flame of passion that I have for working with all populations of people.

While clients may enter counseling unsure of what to expect, nervous, or even being "voluntold" to participate, I strive to be personable, open minded, and encouraging. I fully understand that opening up about feelings, emotions, thoughts, experiences, and desires is not always easy. Many times, putting in the work to address changes in life that need to happen in order to become healthier on a multitude of levels, isn't easy. However, I am here to come alongside you to assist you with this journey.

I look forward to working with you!

Literally not just saying this because it is recommended. Donnie is GREAT, this is your sign to invest in your health by booking him as your therapist.

Written by D.A. on Jun 10, 2021 after counseling with Donnie for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, self esteem, and adhd

Honestly, the first therapist I have seen and I have seen so many changes in my life, my thinking, my habits, and how I perceive problems. I already had this sense of growth that I wanted to accomplish but having someone to talk to about it weekly pushes that growth mindset that I can grow further than I originally thought was possible.

Donnie has been the perfect counselor, he has made me feel comfortable throughout the process. I was very fearful and doubtful of prior to starting counseling, but Donnie has helped counseling become a productive aspect in my life.

Written by C.A. on Mar 23, 2021 after counseling with Donnie for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, coaching, compassion fatigue, and adhd

He was kind enough to continue to reach out in spite of feeling emotionally unable to move forward. I want to continue to work out things which have challenged me for so long. I have been paired with a counselor considerate enough to demonstrate consistency and commitment. I must show up for myself as he has.

Donnie has been great at connecting with me and helping me understand the issues that I have from a different angle.

Written by E.V. on Mar 09, 2021 after counseling with Donnie for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety

I worked with Donnie for a few months. He's a great listener and does a great job of making space for you to talk through things, offering encouragement along the way. He doesn't always have an answer ready for every question, but is honest about this (not that all questions during counseling even have answers) and still tries his best to work the problem with you. I'd happily recommend him to anyone looking for a very calm and supportive counselor.

I’m thankful for his help in the last year. He gives grace in moments that I felt undeserving and targeted issues with honesty.

Donnie is very respectful and allows me to speak what I need to say. He is very kind.

Written by C.O. on Dec 19, 2020 after counseling with Donnie for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, self esteem, coping with life changes, and adhd

Donnie has been outstanding through this process for me thus far. I was intimidated by this process, and unsure who to go about finding which counselor would best suit me, but betterhelp really did that for me. I trusted the process, met with Donnie for my first session and I was blown away. He is non judgmental, understanding, kind, humorous, caring, and selfless counselor. He makes me feel as though he cares to talk to me. I have gone to in person counseling numerous times before, and each time felt as if I were talking to a robot. Donnie is like that in no way. He is a person with heart and kindness. He has a way of talking that makes me feel as though I can trust him. I don’t have a lot of money to spend on counseling, and have considered stopping soon due to that, but I want to find a way to keep this as a priority, thanks to Donnie, because they are worth it and are working. My sessions are well constructed, each question I have going into each session is left answered and in a clear and thought out way. He doesn’t beat around the bush, he tells me what he thinks will help and that makes me know he takes this just as seriously as I do. Thank you, Donnie, for making this space for me healing, safe, and overall empowering.

Donnie is a good listener

Written by M.I. on Nov 16, 2020 after counseling with Donnie for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Donnie has been of great help for the past few months. He guides you and advices you in a way where you can feel prepared to make your own decisions. This is critical in a therapist. Someone who takes you by the hand but doesn’t pushes you into doing or thinking what they believe. He’s objective yet knows how and when to tell you it’s time to do better for your own good. Thank you Donnie.

Written by A.L. on Sep 29, 2020 after counseling with Donnie for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, and trauma and abuse

It's difficult to put into words the transformational experience of a counselor. Donnie has been a light on a stand for me, guiding me to live life more fully. His understanding and compassionate nature were incredibly necessary for my deep-rooted pains and how they manifested in life. If you're reading this and you have struggled with sexual immorality, deceit, manipulative behavior, lust or anything else. Recognize where you are at and that you need help just like I did. Then come to Donnie with all your weight and let his Christian perspective bring you to fullness again. Donnie, you are a light of the world. Keep shining!

I am really happy to have been matched with you first! It’s hard to find a councilor where you feel they have a genuine intreat in what you are talking about. I love that if there are times I just want to have a casual conversation with someone I can with you, sometimes that’s all I need. Also being able to have a serious conversation with a counselor is amazing it’s like having a friend and counselor in one. Thank you!

Donnie used a Tony Stark/Iron Man reference to explain his approach to counseling. I liked that. He made me feel he can help me figure myself out and move forward.

So far we had 2 sessions and I feel comfortable talking to him. I am not very open talking about my problems with stranger but so far I can open up to him about my problems. I am comfortable talking to him and he understands what I am talking about and realizing the main problems and offering ways to resolve them. Very attentive listener which is great.

Very genuine and easy to connect with, not judgmental at all and is very respectful towards you and whatever you have going on. If your looking for someone who can help you with your connection with god or simply someone just to talk to i highly recommend him. I had a few counselors before him and he is by far the best taking up a league of his own. Thanks Donnie!
