I am a Psychologist Candidate (PSYC), registered with the State of Colorado under licensed supervision, who is experienced and dedicated to helping adolescents and adults with stress, anxiety, depression, and trauma.
My name is Dr. Alana Fenton and I usually go by "Dr. A.". To share a bit about my credentials and services offered, I have a Bachelor’s in Human Development, a Master’s in General Psychology, a Master’s in Clinical Psychology, and achieved my PhD in Clinical Psychology. As a Psychologist Candidate (PSYC) in Colorado, I love that I can bring a unique twist to psychological services, by offering the first evidence-based, tele-assessment, tele-therapy service to El Paso County, providing affordability and accessibility to the community, especially during COVID. There are some exceptions to tele-assessment whereby I also offer in-person, on-location assessments (i.e., ABA facilities, schools etc…), as contracted. At present, I am under supervision as a Psychologist Candidate by Licensed Psychologist, Dr. Pamela Shipp, PhD, LP.
To tell you more about my experience, I have previous experience in neurodevelopmental and psychological assessment, including autism, ADHD, psychoeducational, and cognitive/intellectual testing. I currently hold certifications, training, and expertise in Autism Assessment (ADOS-2), Clinical Anxiety Treatment, Parent Management Training (Kadzin Method), Trauma-Focused Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
I'm a former Specialist of the United States Army, college instructor of psychology, and a consultant in child and adolescent behavioral health and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. When I'm not nerding out on all things psychology, as the mother of two teenage sons, I spend time with my loved ones, enjoy travel, hikes and reading. Psychology has been my passion for the past two decades. My motto is "Service to Others Leads to Greatness!" I look forward to being of service in this community, helping you with your psychological needs.
