Carder works with adults, teenagers and adolescents on a variety of mental health issues including:
Anxiety is the most common of all human emotions. Most people experience fear on a regular basis. Carder helps his client’s face their fears. He demonstrates that fear does not have power, but is simply a construct of the human mind. He teaches deep breathing exercises, guided relaxation and meditation. Many people’s fears stem from worries about the future or thoughts about the past. Carder helps his client’s stay present and focused on the here and now.
Depression may be present for years before it is addressed. Many people feel sad and hopeless and do not know why. Carder works with his clients to uncover the source of the depression. Negative feelings often grow from distorted beliefs about the past. Carder will help to reframe these old beliefs and provide a healthier perspective and more positive outlook.
Low Self Esteem
Low Self Esteem is usually a result of not knowing how to move forward. Many people feel stuck in their lives and have no idea that change is possible. Carder will help to create the blueprint for a new beginning. He encourages his clients to become aware of the actions that make them feel good about themselves. These esteemable acts are the key to a new found freedom and healthy sense of self.
Anger is one of the most powerful human emotions. Many people allow anger to govern their lives and are paralyzed in a state of constant dissatisfaction. When people feel angry they give away their power to others. Carder helps his clients reclaim their power by diffusing the ideas that lay underneath the anger. He teaches a method that soothes the frustration and allows for a new understanding to take its place.
Grief is usually associated with feelings of loss. Grief may be present when a person loses a job, moves to a new city, feels the effects of aging, or goes through a break up. It may also be felt during the death of a loved one. When people lose anything important they move through various stages of grief. These stages include depression, anger, denial, bargaining and acceptance. Carder has worked with many clients during their grieving process. He offers support, empathy, kindness and understanding.
