Lucas Brewer, MS, LPCC-S , BSP, SSP
Licensed Professional Counselor
I am an Ohio Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and have been in practice for 10 years. I am also a Brainspotting™ Practitioner Consultant and a Certified Advanced Brainspotting™ Practitioner.
My practice is rooted in Brainspotting and guided by Parts Work / Polyvagal Theory; with the overall goal of releasing old narratives in order to create room for new experiences. I work with Veterans, First-Line Responders, Counselors as well as Clients with PTSD, C-PTSD, DID and Attachment wounds. I also provide communication enhancement skills for Couples, Blended Family Issues and Co-Parenting Concerns.
My goal is to help clients reorganize trauma in the body, to make room for hope, possibility and expansion. If you have struggled with motivation or feel as though life is heavy / not fulfilling, my system is able to bring in energy and clear the fog that may be clouding your way forward. I also specialize in inner child work to help heal attachment wounds.
I am a husband, a parent, a therapist, a veteran, a teacher, a helper and a neighbor. I'm passionate about the human experience and I help shed light into the dark. I listen to the stories of life and often bear witness to others as they overcome hardships and become more than they thought possible. I listen because it's important.
Erin Brewer, MA, LMT, RMT, SSP, SEP (Post Advanced Year Grad)
I specialize in teaching clients how to develop and enhance their somatic listening skills so that they can tend to their own bodies and emotions with compassion and support. Using a Polyvagal therapeutic approach and trauma-informed approaches, I teach clients how to manage overwhelm and shut down in the body.
I view the body as a record keeper of all of the experiences, thoughts, and emotions we've ever had. The grief of loved ones we’ve lost, the stories of the work we’re meant to do while we’re here, our higher truths, the children we had or never had, even geographical places that we yearn to visit are all held within our body stories. All of these narratives serve as doorways in for healing. This understanding and practice has become the foundation to all of the services that I offer.
I have attended trainings in Shiatsu, Upledger's Craniosacral Therapy, Integrated Neuromuscular Therapy, Therapeutic Application of Essential Oils, Integrated Somatic Psychology™, Massage Work with Anxiety Disorders, Brainspotting I, Nature Shaman practices, Sound Healing, Vibrational Healing, Aromatherapy, Crystal Therapy, along with a 12-month long Reiki Master Training Program through Angelic Devas Spiritual Enrichment Center in Yellow Springs, Ohio. I have completed the Advanced year of Dr. Peter Levine's Somatic Experiencing® Trauma Resolution Program, and will be moving towards certification as an SEP in 2024. In October of 2023, I traveled to Peru with Lucas and worked in initiation ceremonies for healers with shamans and wisdomkeepers through the Inkan Solar School.
Somatic Experiencing® techniques are incorporated into all of my sessions with clients. In addition, I use various tools of nurturing to help your nervous system rest so that you can begin to feel more regulated. As your body settles into experiences of support and safety, we can begin the deeper work of gently releasing excess and outdated energy that’s been keeping you ‘stuck’.
Below is a list of some of the tools I may use in our sessions together either through chair or treatment table/supportive touch work. We will work together to determine which tools are best suited for you.
Common Issues that I work with:
It is our goal to provide an inclusive, safe, relaxed environment in which we facilitate trauma healing by forming a balanced partnership with our clients. We believe healing is a co-creative journey. Through holding a safe and attuned framework, and serving as resources for education and support, we aim to encourage our clients to tap into their own innate abilities to heal. As a result, we aim to assist our clients to live more happy, healthy, regulated, and conscious lives.
Earthworks Healing Arts is an affirming and inclusive practice and we welcome ALL bodies and ALL nervous systems.
Earthworks Healing Arts is a Woman-owned and Veteran-owned practice.
