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!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Donald Fenton. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Awesome & great listener.
Great listener and honestly feels as if I’m talking to a friend. I can feel vulnerable and yet still laugh and make jokes and just feel very calm after speaking with him. Gives great advice and amazing recommendations. He has really helped me in the short time we have spoken and it’s very nice to have someone who not only listens but understands and relates to what I’m going through.
Donnie is personable, kind, and experienced. His sense of humor creates an inviting atmosphere; like when talking to a friend. With the inability to trust my own decision-making at the time I began sessions, not to mention a beaten-down sense of confidence, Donnie provided me with practical challenges that helped me regain control. My emotions, thoughts, and overall life situation improved. Counseling with Donnie was the best investment that I could have made and resulted in immense growth. Feedback was constructive, unbiased, and eye-opening. I would HIGHLY recommend his services (especially if you are seeking a biblically based perspective).
Always feel better after talking to Donald!
10/10 would recommend this guy
Very understanding and listens to every issue
Couldn’t have asked for a better therapist!
Dr. Fenton enabled me to see the light again, and emerge triumphant from one of the darkest periods of my life, while going through a divorce. I highly recommend his excellent services!
Donald Fenton helped improve my work relationship and marriage. Gave practical advice!!
I had my first session with him today and he's amazing. I don't open up to anyone ever a d he made it so easy and comfortable. I think this is gonna be a great match and I'm thankful
Don is a great listener and easy to talk to. His personal life experiences have helped me in dealing with my current situations. I feel lucky he's my therapist.
Donald Fenton is an excellent therapist. He asks questions that can help you reframe your issue. As a result, we’ve made great progress quickly.
Donald has been such a huge part of my growth in the last two months. And without him I wouldn't be doing as well as I am. He has been supportive, understanding and encouraging. He gives me tools that I use everyday to build myself up. And I will forever me grateful for the help he has given me.
Its been wonderful working with Donnie, and I have his trash can analogy stuck in my head!
Donald is a great listener. He is also patient and has the ability to make insightful observations and offer up helpful suggestions for change. I been very grateful for his help.
Although Id still consider myself new to Better Help, I’ve had multiple conversations with Dr. Fenton and he makes me feel validated, heard, and supported.
Donald is beyond awesome.
I’m only a month in with seeing Donnie and he’s been great!
Great therapist. I’m glad I was linked up with him.
Donald has made this journey into therapy a great experience. He understands where I am coming from and gives me extremely PRACTICAL homework which I greatly appreciate. We had an instant connection and I sincerely appreciate his expertise as we work on improving my mental health. I have only had three sessions, but see the fruits of our talks blossoming daily. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Best therapist I've ever had
I've been working with Donnie Fenton for over 8 months and he's been a solid support for me during a difficult transition. He's smart, caring, totally competent and not a self-righteous douche like some therapists I've encountered. He's legit therapy and I'd recommend him to anyone.
I came to the process looking for some targeted therapy to address a specific situation. Donnie walked me through the process perfectly and helped me navigate the path forward. I’ve seen a dramatic change in me and our time together was essential for that to happen. Donnie is gifted and he works hard to make therapy a meaningful experience.
Donald is so helpful and truly just listens to me!
Donal is very caring and listens to my concerns. He provides feedback as needed and helps me grow in my experiences
Donnie genuinely cares about his patients and takes the time to build a fundamental knowledge of their situation instead of diving in with diagnoses. Highly recommend.
Donald is such a great listener. With even just a couple sessions in, he’s been able to help me get through things. Highly recommend.
Donnie is AMAZING
I have been in therapy for a majority of my life and I have never been this happy with a therapist. Donald listens to me and supports me through some really challenging things. I’m so happy I was matched with him! Would recommend him and BetterHelp 10/10 times!!!
Dr. Fenton has helped in a tremendous way from dealing with me not trusting him as much in the beginning to my depressive episodes to my random realizations throughout the night. I have continually pursued my mental health in a way that I never thought was possible and I feel like I have become stronger as a person and mentally because of the patience’s and dedication that Dr. Fenton has to me as my therapist. He pushes you but knows when to stop, and that has made all the differences in the world. Especially because I will choose comfort over discomfort any day BUT being discomfortable is what allows us to grow into what God has planned for us even when we don’t like it.
He’s super great!
He has provided with me some great insight and has helped me in the process of building my self esteem back up. I’m very pleased with our sessions so far and look forward to building off of that.
I think Donald is a very understanding and personable counselor. If one is looking to work through relationship issues or life transitions he’s a great person for the job. He was able to identify issues that tons of psychiatrists have not been able to identify.
Donnie is absolutely wonderful. Even in the short amount of time that's gone by since I started, I can already feel significant progress within myself after having met him. He's a good listener, thoughtful, kind, positive, and always gives a great perspective on what I'm going through on a week-to-week basis. Thank you BetterHelp for introducing us!
Donnie is just a wonderful human! Listens with a kind ear, advises with patience, wisdom, and is filled with a faith in others that is immensely encouraging and nurturing. I’m blessed with many moments of overdue and needed tears and laughter, as well as a nod of confidence as I continue undergoing a course of action after each discussion that has been leading me on an exploration of my growth and potential. I wouldn’t be here today, taking on all that I would have considered impossible without him!
I am three sessions in with Donnie. He has shared some very good insights. He has provided tangible steps and practices to assist in my growth. He is always prompt for sessions and a good listener.
He has already helped me so much and is very intensive
Absolutely the best counselor I’ve had! He responds to me very quickly and never makes me feel like I’m bothering him. He calls me out on my bs and at the same time shows me why it’s for my own good. He’s very understanding and really cares about what he does. You can talk deep with him and somehow he still makes you feel a little better no matter how dark the subject is. 100000/10 would recommend him to anyone looking for a friend and a counselor in one.
Donald Fenton has changed my Life. I finally feel myself. I know now WHO I AM and What I Am capable of. I am away from home since past 16 years and single but after just 2 sessions, I feel so happy and content. I love my life and I am able to do many things like TikTok, my YouTube Channel, Swimming, Workout, Cooking, Training my Dog and I do this all alone. But I don't feel lonely/ bored anymore. I feel very happy, confident & proud of myself. All thanks to Donald-he brought the best out of me.
Donald is an excellent listener and counselor. I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking for an honest and helpful counselor.
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.
Very easy to talk to, listens closely and gives great advice and guidance.
Donnie's Awesome! Great listener!
Donnie is a heaven sent! I am confident he is the counselor for me!
Donnie creates a space where I feel safe to share anything and I don’t feel rushed when talking. He listens well and I feel encouraged after meeting with him.
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.
Donnie is compassionate and genuine in his approach. I enjoy working with him and feel that he sincerely wants to help me learn how to better cope.
Donnie is kind, very accessible, and offers thoughtful insights.
Very patient, personable, and passionate about his experience with his clients!
He is very good.
Donnie is amazing! I have been going through some big changes in my life and he was the perfect counselor to help me get through it. I am glad we got paired up!
Donnie has been great at connecting with me and helping me understand the issues that I have from a different angle.
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.
Donnie is really good at making therapy feel like a comfortable conversation. I found it really easy to get things off my chest and I appreciated that he took my faith into consideration
Donnie is such a sweet counselor! I appreciate his insight so much
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.
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
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.
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!
Donnie is fantastic, I’m very happy to have him as my counselor.
Very supportive. Honest. Helpful. Gives things to work on. He listens really well. Gives Toughlove when he needs to.
Donnie has been very helpful even though we have only been working together for a short period of time. He’s suggested things that have been helpful and I genuinely feel better after discussing my issues with him. He’s also very understanding and fun to talk to.
Donnie is a really nice and caring counselor. He makes you feel completely comfortable when talking to him.
Donnie's a great guy! I really look forward to working with him to peel back some of my layers. He's really patient and lets you word vomit when that's all you need to do sometimes.
He seems very easy to talk too but it’s still kinda early to do a review
I am very comfortable with Donnie and he has been great to work with
After one session, I am very confident that I was fitted with the right counselor.
Donnie is a caring, compassionate therapist and offered a lot of insight as I worked through some problems I had been having. I was grateful for the supportive atmosphere and he had some really good thoughts and perspective that I have found myself thinking about since.
I can only speak to my experience and needs obviously but Donnie is the perfect counselor for the issues I'm dealing with. He's been very helpful
Donnie is kind, compassionate and understanding in a world and time where it’s easy to feel alone and alienated. He has a way of making me realize things in a kind, but logical way and it’s helped the me to have breakthroughs I didn’t know I could have quickly. Thank you , Donnie for your help thus far in my journey.
Sessions with Donnie have given me a sense of relief. He listens and understands what I'm going through. I'm grateful for his help.
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 has worked with me for a few months now.
His sincerity is at the highest level.
He has helped me even though I didn’t think I needed any help.
Donnie is very easy to talk to and great about guiding you through delicate situations, advocating for you even when you don’t have the strength. Great counselor.
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.
Donnie is AMAZING very easy to talk to and a very good listener! He is very understanding and willing to help you through whatever you may be needing help with!
Donnie is a great counselor as he listens without talking endlessly as most counselors love to do. His pastoral background is a real plus!! Highly recommended!!
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!
Donnie has been incredibly helpful and supportive during a time of uncertainty for me. I truly believe that he genuinely cares about his clients and both their successes and failures. I am very thankful for his guidance and advice.
Thanks Donnie. I really enjoyed our first phone session.
Donnie has been great in the short period we have talked. He always responds in a timely manner. He is super understanding! I am looking forward to working with him some more.
Donnie Fenton is easy to talk to and gives great counseling. I felt at ease being able to speak to him without feeling judged. I appreciate his quick responses and how he follows up. I would recommend to peers and those seeking counseling.
I appreciate Donnie's wisdom.
Donnie is amazing! First counselor I've had and it's just been the best experience. He always responds in a decent time and gives me great advice to help with my personal issues
I was doubtful at first but Donnie has really turned my opinion around about all this. He’s been someone to really help me improve on myself and my day to day life.
Great guy. Very friendly. Professional and personable at the same time. Would highly recommend his service to family or friends.
Donnie cares and his counseling has been helpful. I appreciate his perspective and the approach he takes to helping me think through and work through my concerns and challenges in my life.
I’m thankful for Donnie. He asked questions and I have answers, and it showed a lot of stuff in me that needed to change within a few messages back and forth. After our live session, I couldn’t recommend him enough. Thank you Donnie for allowing me to be honest without judgement and giving me a safe space. I’m looking forward to the progress. Thank you sir.
Donnie is excellent! I would highly recommend him. He is kind and very honest and has a lot of experience.
Donnie has been very supportive of me in processing the death of my father and some other family issues. He has been very understanding and attentive. I feel very comfortable talking to him and confident in his abilities. I really feel like Donnie is a Godsend and I would recommend him to other men who want to be the best version of themselves.
I’m so glad I got paired with him! He’s awesome! Highly recommend ☺️
