About me

I am Marriage and Family Therapist with over 30 years experience. I have worked with individuals, couples and families in crisis and those wanting to improve their relationships. I have worked with military families and service members as well as vets. I have extensive experience with PTSD and Combat Stress. I have experience working with Depression, Anxiety and sexual abuse issues. I have extensive experience working with families with special needs children (mostly Autism). I have conducted workshops on Couples Communication and work with couples and families to improve their communication.

I have experience working with Men's issues. I work on teaching men how to avoid domestic violence issues to parenting as a man. I also work to help men co-parent in divorce and separation.

I work from a rational behavioral approach believing that everyone has the ability and can resolve their issues and problems. I believe that a good therapist will not only listen to their clients but will be active in teaching and improving the skills needed to improve your live and happiness.

I look forward to working with you to improve your relationships with yourself, your family and everyone in your life.

William has helped me cope with my childhood traumas, how to set boundaries and continue to make sure they're respected, he has helped guide me to delegating responsibilities to others and not take on too much and how to work through issues in relationships. I feel like I have a lot of tools to continue to work on myself.

I worked through 3 different therapists on Betterhelp before I got matched with William, but now I feel like I've found my forever-therapist. I love that he challenges me & calls me out (kindly) when I'm falling into my own mental traps. He's there to remind me of my goals & values when I get distracted and to remind me of my unique strengths when I'm too hard on myself. After only a few months of working together, I feel like I now have William on my shoulder, whispering in my ear even outside of therapy... reminding me of my worth & telling me to bring more ease into my life. Whereas other therapists told me what I wanted to hear, William tells me what I need to hear & is a perfect match to my energy. So thankful I found him & can't imagine the last 6 months without his support.

William Fenton has pointed out things about me that i wasnt aware of about myself. i didnt realize i broke so many fair fighting rules. he even taught me to stand my ground in my relationship with my husband without causing another fight. the biggest thing I've learned from william fenton is perception...how to perceive issues appropriately in order to solve issues effectively. my work life and my love life feels less stressful and more manageable. i am definitely keeping william in my life!!
