Blacks and Whites will never bridge the ugliness and ignorance of our shared history in America unless we teach each other how to heal.

~ George Lewis


Like carefully planting a tree so that the roots grow true and deep, Culturally-Directed Motivational Healing seeks to build strong self-esteem, self-worth and self-knowledge, so that stable, sustainable recovery from substance use can be built on a strong foundation.

Sammer Elkhateeb

Motivational Consultant

I enjoy engaging people in early recovery in discussions that create an atmosphere of recovery. I am comfortable going beyond the superficial, using my own experiences in recovery as a springboard to launch discussions that inspire thought, provoke conversation and guide clients to share openly about there own experiences.

Jackie Shorr

Motivational Consultant

My passion is to engage with addicts in recovery. Interacting and discussing topics that inspires us to think about where we are in our own recovery at that very moment. Pushing our minds past what we previously comprehended about where we stood in life. Listening to the similarities that a group of people have in common realizing no one is alone and inspiring hope.

Kristine Longfield

Motivational Consultant

Being a woman in recovery, has changed my whole life inside and out. Being a woman in recovery who’s been granted the opportunity to become a lecturer for our recovering population gives me the duty of reciprocity. It allows me to give and receive positive support. I am placed in the position to learn and influence different perspectives, and exercise human compassion.

Blake Hjelme

Zhawin Gonzalez

Motivational Consultant

I believe the only way to be of help to someone is to challenge their ideas. Sharing gems I’ve picked up along my own recovery path, together with my worldview as a proud member of the White Earth, Band of Ojibwe, helps me serve the healing process.

Kim Lawson
