Our Philosophy

With 30 years’ experience in leading the mental health and addiction treatment industry, Kimberly Lou and Bryan Aleman stand at the forefront in helping their clients create and sustain new lives to become productive members of society. Whether you are rich or poor, mental health and addiction do not discriminate.  

We began our highly specialized program after our founder, Kimberly Lou, consulted with many doctors and gurus as part of her own self-help and realized that what she needed was not provided. As a result of that experience, she created a unique template for herself and has now shared that template with hundreds of thousands of people, working with over 15,000 groups and individuals worldwide, including A-list celebrities, Fortune Five Hundred CEOs, and professional athletes. And now her focus includes mental health and addiction centers. As a result of her success, Kimberly Lou has written seven books, her most recent book titled “Becoming Who You’re Meant to Be,” which contains her unique blueprint that illuminates the philosophies with which she trains her staff weekly. ‘

Four Phase

Kimberly Lou and Bryan Aleman have learned over the years that there are simply four primary causes of mental health concerns, alcoholism and addiction. Once those causes are discovered in an individual, with proper treatment that person can overcome their battle against addiction and live a fulfilling and meaningful life.

Because no matter what walk of life, what race, or what ethnic or social class you may be from, addiction and mental health concerns do NOT discriminate: they affect us all, whether you are the addict, the family member, or a loved one of the addict.

In this program, we treat all clients and staff with dignity and respect. We do not label you, make you feel “wrong,” or encourage you toward false beliefs about yourself. Instead, we help you create a new belief system and a new story to your life. Kimberly Lou always says that if you’re going to tell a story about your life, make it a good one, because whatever you say goes. Let’s tell that new story now. We welcome the opportunity to be of service to you, and to help elevate your team, so that you can go from “settle and survive” to “accelerate and thrive,” and move forward into a life you love. 

Our team at Guiding Hands Healthcare is first class. No other facilitation team in the world compares to the quality of care we provide. We offer the equivalent of Kimberly Lou’s 30 years’ experience, which has generated over 30 specialized group modalities, including six weeks of curriculums for each group. 

Our Facilitators are trained in highly individualized groups and attend rigorous continuing-education sessions weekly. Our facilitators have either been through treatment themselves or fully understand the healthcare process due to loved ones being treated. This allows for intensive work that gets to the core of the issues that drive low mental health and addiction, rather than focusing solely on the problem itself. The benefit of this approach is that clients receive a significant amount of insight and gain tools to change their lives in meaningful ways. 

Providing top level groups seven days a week, 365 days a year, our team is on-site 10 minutes in advance and remains afterward to assess each group and debrief the staff. Additionally, our facilitators are exclusive to our company; you cannot find them anywhere else.


Kimberly and Bryan became acquainted through their work and periodically discussed how, with a more in-depth approach to group facilitation, they could better serve the Mental Health and Addiction community. In time, they learned their goal was to be a guiding resource not only for individual clients but also for staff who facilitate healing. This approach allowed them to create a more harmonious environment while producing high participation and satisfaction rates within the community. 

With the assistance of Kimberly Lou’s “Repair. Rebuild. Recover” (TM) program, thousands of people worldwide have been able to end a cycle of addiction and mental health concerns, and have gone deeper to heal underlying causes. Kimberly Lou is now the CEO of Guiding Hands Healthcare and runs a thriving organization. She inspires change and transformation in people just like her, people who want to be free of drug and alcohol abuse and mental health concerns.

If you're going to tell a story about your life, make it a good one, because whatever you say goes.
