What is "Seed Digging?"
Seed Digging is a compassionate approach that blends evidence-based counseling models and techniques together in a simple language to help individuals understand how emotional and behavioral issues develop and how to overcome them. Seed Digging uses a garden analogy to explain how negative and positive thoughts (seeds) can deeply impact emotions and behaviors; through simple strategies, negative seeds can be "uprooted" and replaced with positive ones through building self-confidence, love and inner healing connection. These are the keys to experiencing incredible inner peace and joy. Seed Digging incorporates current neurological research and concepts and techniques from Person-Centered Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Play Therapy, Cognitive-Behavior Therapy, Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, and Attachment theory. Seed Digging also offers several programs and services including a school based trauma informed model, with 5-layers of care, a wellness & counseling clinic, books and resources, live trainings and online training programs.

Throughout the therapy process, clients are gradually trained to use the technique themselves so that they can sustain healing, grow, and thrive.
Seed Digging counseling sessions occur at the Seed Digging Wellness Center located in Harrison, Arkansas.
