Kristen Fenton


I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have worked in the clinical field for 10 years with adolescents and adults in Community Mental Health, School Social Work, Residential, PHP, IOP, and Private Practice settings treating clients with anxiety, depression, eating disorders, life transitions, chronic illness, and relationship challenges. I describe my therapeutic approach as warm, relational, compassionate, collaborative, and I am committed to providing a safe and nonjudgmental space.

As a local Oak Park parent with 2 neurodivergent children, I have a passion for supporting parents and families with a child with special needs. Parenting can be hugely stressful and adding the additional layer of advocating, coordinating a treatment team, and finding places of respite or support is an additional weight that can significantly impact parents (as individuals and in their relationship as a couple) and the overall family dynamic. Supporting parents and caregivers in addressing areas of burnout, codependency, communication breakdowns, boundary setting and collaborating to prioritize one’s own needs and holistic (mental, physical, emotional and spiritual) health is a process I love and enjoy.

In my clinical work, I draw from evidence-based therapeutic modalities such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) in order to provide care that is trauma-informed, tailored to your mental health challenges, and aligns with your values and goals. In my work with clients with eating disorders and disordered eating, I work from a HAES (Health at Every Size) approach in supporting your recovery process. I have also completed extensive training in perinatal mental health to support parents experiencing mental health challenges while transitioning into this new role.

It takes courage to recognize our own limits and needs to seek out support. Depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and parental burnout can leave us feeling detached, empty, overwhelmed, and/or disconnected, and so many other things. I’m glad you’re here searching for support, and I look forward to partnering with you.
