Richard (Benny) Hunton

Philippians 4:13 reads (ERV), “Christ is the one who gives me the strength I need to do whatever I must do.” This is, you might say, my theoretical approach to counseling. There is not a day that passes that I do not ask my Lord to bless me with wisdom to deal with the hurting people that He sends my way. I am humbled, and yet both pleased and excited, to have the opportunity to help you see how Christ can bring about change in your life. I proceed on the basic philosophy that you can only control one person, and that is yourself. Amazing things begin to happen when you allow Christ to take control, and you begin to see the transformation take place.
