Dr. Fenton works with individuals and couples concerned with anxiety, depression, grief and relationship discord. As a grief counselor, she understands how each person experiences grief in their own unique way. Loss is not limited to the death of a loved one. It includes: divorce, career change, health, infertility, and many other life transitions. Dr. Fenton offers a holistic healing approach that helps her clients return to their lives with greater personal and professional stability and functioning.

She also specializes in sexology, which covers a wide array of issues pertaining to sexual desire, addiction, infidelity and identity difficulties. She works with her clients in a collaborative effort to best help them overcome these life challenges.

Dr. Fenton has extensive training in Spiritual and Transpersonal counseling.

Dr. Fenton lectures at the Pablo Creek Library in Jacksonville in order to reach those that are unable to see her privately. This venue enables her to help educate and discuss therapeutic approaches for treating grief, anxiety and other psychological concerns.

Twelve years ago, Dr. Fenton established Florida Pathways to Health as a result of her belief system that emotional, physical and spiritual health, which affects everyone around us, work interdependently. Through the combination of traditional psychotherapy, physical, emotional and spiritual therapies, our clients emerge as newer and better versions of themselves, more aware and empowered to live purposeful and harmonious lives.

Her sessions are $150 for 50 minutes. Please call the office at 904-203-5555 or email her at to schedule an appointment.
