My name is Kristen Carder and I have adult ADHD.
I used to be filled with frustration. I was angry at myself and others that my goals weren’t happening. I was a chronic under-earner, under-achiever, and under-performer. I felt like I was missing something. I was right. I was missing a proper ADHD treatment plan. I was missing an understanding of how my ADHD brain works. I was missing the ability to understand and feel my emotions. I was missing the support I needed to help me to accomplish goals.
Everything is different now. I’ve mastered my ADHD brain, implemented support, and built the life that I’ve always wanted.
I’m a Certified Life Coach who helps adults with ADHD figure out how to get sh*t done and enjoy their lives.
I help parents of overweight kids build a healthy, whole family. Unlike other pediatricians, I don’t focus upon the individual child’s weight, BMI and struggles. The Family in Focus program empowers parents to become the role model for creating healthy habits for themselves and their children so lifelong health becomes a family affair, no matter the number on the scale.
Here’s the thing: It’s not about the weight. And it’s sure not about focusing on “fixing” your child. They are not broken, and neither are you. Your own weight, diet history & body image do not define your ability to help your children, and you have not failed as a parent. In fact, no one is better suited than you to help your child.
You are not alone on this journey. Join us in our group coaching program, where transformations occur in a supportive community.
There are three pillars to my coaching:
- The Family in Focus program: I work with parents who are struggling with being overweight for themselves and their children. I empower them to become the role model for health at home by creating a customized plan for the family that cultivates confidence, compassion and flexibility for real life.
- As a weight loss coach, I work with physicians who want to better support their patients on their weight loss journey. We explore your own medical training and biases, body image and weight concerns.
- As a physician-coach, I also work with physicians who are just tired of trying to survive the clinical day. My coaching mojo is time management, becoming a charting ninja (done so quickly you never knew the chart was there!), designing your lifestyle, work-life balance, addressing burnout and moving from surviving to truly thriving at work and at home.
I help working women achieve sanity without self-recrimination, for all of the mind drama that comes from balancing office and home life.
I help Catholic moms learn how to manage their minds so they can stop believing lies and step into who God is calling them to be.
Mama, you prayed for this life. Let me show you how to enjoy it.
Together, we’ll find the thoughts that are keeping you stuck and dissatisfied. Once we remove those, you can hear God’s voice so much more clearly. Then we work on building your self-confidence and finding the courage to do what He’s asking you to do.
God planted desires in your heart and since He planted them, He will create a path to fulfill them. When you click into alignment with God’s vision for your life, fully trusting Him and yourself to show up, amazing things happen!
I help overwhelmed high-achievers have it all — without the hustle and burn out.
After coaching over 1000 client sessions, I know that changing your mindset is POWERFUL to help ditch the overwhelm and anxiety.
But thought work only gets you so far when you’re strung out on sugar and coffee all day.
Or when you’re totally out of touch with creating true joy and peace.
So I create the Transformational Triad for true transformation of my clients’ Mind, Body and Spirit.
We dismantle the thoughts causing overwhelm.
We detox from sugar, flour, coffee and alcohol.
We restore your energy from the inside out with Reiki, meditation, connection and being in nature.
This isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution.
We jigger and figure.
We do it all on your own terms.
My clients signed with me when they knew they were ready for a change, willing to do the work, and able to invest in themselves.
If you’re ready, willing and able, then let’s. get. going.
I help creative women build businesses. Whether you’re a graphic designer, interior designer, photographer or floral designer, I provide the tools you need to build a successful 6-figure business. I’m here to be your guide, your mentor and your teacher and make it easy for you to turn your passion into profit.
Stop overeating, overdrinking, and overworking – and enjoy your life!
I help female physicians stop feeling stressed without numbing themselves…so they can actually enjoy their lives and stop wanting to escape!
I help women in their midlife (approx. ages 30-55) find their spark and self again. Does it feel like your life is suddenly falling apart – from your job, to your relationships, to your personal identity? Or that your body & soul are staging a revolt and are saying no more to your old lifestyle? Welcome officially to the midlife awakening club. It’s a wonderful place to be – it’s a time of great change and freedom – a time to reconnect back in with who you truly are and create clarity, passion and deep meaning in your life for years to come. I’ve been there and helped countless women navigate back “home”.
I help professionals uplevel their careers, relationships, and life by working LESS! Learn how to get the best sleep of your life, negotiate like the boss, how to feel amazing in a terrible job (or how not to feel terrible in an amazing job), ditch work-life balance/integration (be the boss instead, it is waaaaaaaaaaaaaay better!), stop letting your To-Do list ruin your life, learn how to deal with “toxic people” without becoming one, forget about the boss’s mood influencing yours, and let go of guilt and overwhelm. Forever. The secret is that it’s not our job’s job to make us feel valued. That’s our job. This is the best news ever! You are just a few thoughts away from your dream life. I can help guide you there.
Coaching is about showing you your own mind. You’ll gain clarity and build confidence as you realize what you can control and change in your life. You’ll be able to see where you can change your current life to create the future you want – without all the self-judgment and stress, and with a lot more ease and fun.
My mission is to help you see your own innate worthiness. You can stop the cycle of self-judgment and fear of failure. Together, we can help you build the self-trust, self-confidence, and self-love that will serve you in not only getting what you want, but in becoming the contribution you are meant to be in this world.

I help ambitious Jew-ish women ditch their anxious, looping thoughts so they can be present and enjoy life.
I can help you, because I was you. Even though I was living the life I thought I always wanted – I had an amazing senior management job at Google, a loving husband, and a beautiful house by the beach – my life was dictated by anxiety.
As a third-generation Holocaust survivor, I was constantly assuming the worst-case scenario, worrying about “letting anyone down,” chasing external validation, agonizing over decisions, and burying myself in my work.
When I plateaued in therapy, Life Coaching gave me the tools to finally feel calm, clear, and confident. I “graduated” from therapy, stopped taking SSRIs, and got so much time & energy back. I’ve packaged up what I learned in coaching, yoga, meditation, and my Jewish upbringing into a highly effective, structured yet mind-blowing anxiety relief program.
You can feel calm, clear, and confident, too. I will work with you to get there.
Do you find yourself thinking “If Only” something or someone would change, then I would be happy? Or my life would be better “If Only” _________.
Do you find that your everyday life is filled with drama over all the things you wish people were doing and saying? And that includes what you think you should be doing and saying.
I help individuals lose the stress and drama of everyday challenges. You don’t need a magic wand and you don’t need anyone or anything to change. I coach you when you are stuck by all the “If Onlys” in your life.
