How does Beamer react when you bathe and brush him? If he totally hates the grooming process it might not be the "groomer" he hates as much as what her presence means (ie: bathing, brushing, nail clipping, dealing with mats, etc.) On the other hand if he's pretty good about baths, maybe his reaction means that he does associate something uncomfortable about the groomer. I'd try somewhere else next time just to gauge his reaction.
In the meantime, I can't wait to see photos of the newly groomed Beamer.
