Kenton is open about his own recovery from an eating disorder and harnesses that experience to productively work with clients in this field. As a therapist and discharge coordinator with Alsana, Kenton enjoys talking about emotions, thoughts, and ideas with clients and spending time with fellow staff.
Previously, Kenton used to be a filmmaker and after college he made a feature film called “Missing Pieces” and wrote several screenplays. He also wrote a few books while working for a pet sitting company and volunteering at Birmingham’s Crisis Center Hotline.
Kenton double majored in business and film at American University in Washington, D.C., and earned a Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He is currently an associate licensed counselor working toward becoming a licensed professional counselor.
In his free time, Kenton enjoys music, movies and concerts, and is currently writing a new book. Before getting too deep into conversation, Kenton jokes that he must know a person’s favorite movie and the music they listen to. Only then will he tell them that he was once crowned top pickle salesman at a movie theater for selling almost 400 pickles.
