About

Brenda Beard LCSW, Certified AAIT Practitioner and Ordained Minister Loving, Spiritual, Light hearted, Nonjudgemental, Generous, Wise, Provoking. Daughter of the Universe Who cares deeply about ending suffering of all beings. Who feels joy when observing the growth of her clients. Who needs to convey we are all the same. Who gives her life passion to serving people. Who fears the furnace monster and the eerie anglerfish (Google it!). Who would like to see an end to the fragmented consciousness. Resident soul of her earthly meat suit.
Acceptance And Integration Training is a practice that quickly and effectively target problems that cause reactivity and distress. The techniques guide people to the problem resolution of old wounds, pain, and self-limiting beliefs: all of which lead to movement towards our true self. Isn't it time to be free of your conditioned self?
Our work together will be collaborative: using the appropriate AAIT technique. This model is non-narrative. AAIT is helpful for me as a busy clinician. I make use of these techniques regularly to relieve tension. My hope is that you will benefit from this practice as much as my clients and I have. I look forward to our collaborative work together.
