About Wild Fig

What is special about a Wild Fig?

“In life, storms come not to hurt you but to make you stronger”

– Debasish Mridha

Jeremiah 17:8 says that we are to be

“like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit”

Storms will come in our life. It is a certainty. Sadly, it seems that the storm of anxiety and depression is coming upon people earlier and earlier in their lives. We must learn to develop deep roots that are based in Truth. If we establish who we are and what we stand for we will not only survive the storms that come our way, but we will also not fail to produce fruit.

Wild Figs have the deepest root of any tree on earth. They have been measured at up to 400 feet deep! Anxiety, depression, or any other storm gives us an opportunity to grow.

My hope is that I can be a part in helping your child begin to develop the roots that they will need to withstand any storm that comes their way.

“Each stage has its lessons to be learned, and each stage can be wounded, cut short, leaving the growing man with an undeveloped soul. Then we wonder why he folds suddenly when he is forty-five, like a tree we find toppled in the yard after a night of strong winds. We go over to have a look and find its roots hadn’t sunk down deep into the earth, or perhaps that it was rotten on the inside, weakened by disease or drought. Such are the insides of unfinished men.”

​My name is Hunt Sexton. I was born and raised in Perry, GA. I am impressed if you have heard of it. I received my Bachelor of Business Administration from Auburn University (War Eagle!) and after marrying my beautiful wife, we moved back to Perry. I worked for our family business that my great grandfather started. After realizing this work was not for me, we moved to Greensboro, GA where I worked for the Ritz-Carlton. Three years and one son later, our family decided to move to Greenville, a city we visited a number of times and fell in love with.

While in Greenville I have worked in both management and sales roles. However, I began to realize just how much I enjoyed working with people one on one. Helping those people work through difficult and challenging situations in their personal lives as well as their working lives was what I enjoyed most about my work. After much thought, prayer, and guidance; I decided to pursue my Masters in Counseling.

I received my Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Capella University. During that time I was able to intern at Shannon Forest Christian School where I began to really understand how much I enjoyed working with teenagers. I also had the privilege of working with City Center Counseling Ministries for two years.

I am licensed by the state of South Carolina as a Licensed Professional Counselor and I truly enjoy working with teenagers and their parents to help them overcome the trials and difficulties that are common during this time of life. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you think that I could be a helpful resource to you or your family.
