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.

Dr Fenton is great. He is real, no nonsense, does not sugar coat anything and is exactly what I needed. I love how he simplifies things for me to help me understand why and where it's coming from. I enjoy talking to him and always leave our sessions with a better understanding of myself, my thoughts and actions, and most importantly how to use that information to try different ways to better things overall.
