I am a certified Personal Life Coach, located in Long Island, NY. I provide one-on-one and group coaching to individuals who struggle with challenges often associated with ADHD, such as organization, time management, planning and prioritizing, and feelings of overwhelm -- all which ultimately lead to low self-esteem and "self-ass kicking". My philosophy is help guide the client to a better underst

You could never imagine your life without her, and after she left, in the brief moments of awareness, you cried from the pain of missing her. While our hearts are broken, we know that you are where you've been wanting to be. Rest easy, dad. You’re with your ❤️ again.

I’m baaack! 👋
I returned from an amazing vacation where I sat on the beach 🏖, read a great book (Where the Crawdads Sing - and yes, I’m way behind in my fiction reading!) and got a ‘recharge’ ⚡️And now I’m back and ready to go! ⚡️
Blessed 😇 to have that time away but recharging doesn’t always involve ✈️ and 🏖
➡️Sometimes it’s a day spent in my pjs sitting on the 🛋 binge watching, reading or doing absolutely nothing. I love those days.
➡️Don’t need excuses! Don’t feel any guilt!
So I’m looking for my next 📖 to read. Any suggestions???
And can I just say — how great was that book?? Discuss??
Can we lose the term 'drama queen' PLEASE?! 🤦🏼♀️
Kirby’s Tip of the Day
You’ve gotten through 100% of the times you didn’t think you would. Breathe. You’ve got this!
✌️ out 💛 Checking out for a few days 🛫
When I’m feeling grateful, I’m feeling happy. When I’m feeling happy, I notice more things to be grateful for. A beautiful cycle. A beautiful vibe ☺️
Grateful for my morning coffee ☕️
What are you grateful for today? 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻
Did I miss 🐶 ? Sorry, Kirb. Truth is, everyday is dog day around here 💛🌟
No good comes from a place a strong emotion 🤬
I must say this at least once a day in sessions with my clients.
🤦🏼♀️Today I needed to remind myself of that 😞
Know when you’re triggered and when you need to disengage 🆖, take a breath 💨and get in a better headspace before continuing whatever it is that you were doing.
And if it’s too late, show some grace. We’re human. We’re emotional. We f*ck up every now and again.
it will all work out.
👉🏻And whatever it is that you’re challenged with, remember this. It’s temporary.
👉🏻And…you’ve gotten through 100% of the times you didn’t think you could.
Seems to be everyday in the life of Kirby
I think she nailed it!
National Book Lovers Day
Feeling overwhelmed? Might need to hit the reset button and get yourself grounded. Like Richard Gere 😉
You always had the power, my dear 🌟 You just had to learn it for yourself 💛
This!! Holy hannah banana! As a former (still working on it everyday) control freak, one thing I’ve realized 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻
Control is really bu****it 🎯
👉🏻It’s anxiety convincing me that I can fix things outside me. But I can’t; I only fix me.
It’s easy to get overwhelmed. Just do the next right thing, one thing at a time ☝🏼
Always ready for meditation 🧘🏼♀️🐶
Any other fans of ?? ✨A ‘must watch’ show. We all need us some wisdom 💥
👉🏻Also - don’t judge. Be curious. You might just learn something! And that’s a beautiful thing!
Mind too distracted to meditate? 🧠
Oh if I had a nickel for every time someone said ‘I can’t meditate, I’m too distracted.’
Here’s the fun thing: Being distracted is part of meditating. So congratulations! You’re doing it! 🎉💥
Next time try this:
🌟Notice (what’s happening)
🌟Accept (without judging)
🌟Redirect your attention to your beautiful breath! 💨
Doesn’t she know it’s a Saturday?? 🤦🏼♀️
Playing hooky 💛☀️🌟
Sometimes all you can do is accept there’s nothing much you can do. And sometimes all you can control is how well you let go of control.
Thoughts from my co-worker today 🌟She’s pretty smart ✨⭐️
She’s not always sleeping on the job. Just most of the time
Where did all our patience go??
I think we need to start watching commercials again. And not just for the Super Bowl.
Your thoughts? 👇🏻👇🏻
I think many of us can related to this…Ever had this experience? You’re really upset and someone says to you, “Take a breath!” 😤
And you’re thinking to yourself: ‘Really??’
At that moment, there are likely a few suggestions you might have for this person, that I really can’t say here. 🙊
But the fact of the matter is, 💡 they’re not wrong.
Much of our breathing is shallow. And when we’re stressed or overwhelmed, our breath becomes even more shallow.
Shallow breathing increases anxiety, fatigue, stress, and other physical and emotional disturbances. 😖
💥 Bottom Line: How we breathe contributes to how we feel.
💭 Seems so obvious, doesn’t it?
Our breath is an incredibly powerful tool that we seem to take for granted. And it’s there with us all the time.
How great is it that?
We have this amazing tool 🔧 , that in less than a minute, we can use to reduce feelings of anger, stress, anxiety, and overwhelm.
➡️ Here’s a simple exercise you can do when you need to relax
Take a long, slow, deep breath in through your nose, as deep as your breath can go.
Pause for a moment,
And then very slowly and softly exhale through your mouth. 🌬
Allow the exhale to be longer than the inhale.
As you exhale, feel your body soften and relax. 😌
Repeat this process 2 - 3 times.
That’s it. It’s that simple.
And takes not even a minute to do. I recommend closing your eyes so you’re less distracted.
The more we practice doing this deep mindful breathing the easier it is for us to do when we actually need it.
So don’t wait until you're really stressed, anxious, or overwhelmed to practice.
Do this breathing exercise several times throughout the day every day.
With time, you’ll develop the ability to control your breath and how you react in emotional situations.
Give it a try.

Thank you for your kind words, Zev G! 💚
Kirby wishes everyone a happy Friday! 🐶
This is how it’s supposed to be, because this is how it is.
It doesn’t matter that it sucks or that it’s hard or it’s difficult, or that it’s great. No, all that matters is that this is how it’s supposed to be, because this is how it is.
It’s in that acceptance of IT IS AS IT IS that I have peace. ☮️
And when I have peace, I function a lot better. I’m calmer. I make better choices.
It’s only our resistance – our not wanting for things to be the way that they are – that we experience suffering.
Pain is inevitable, but suffering is not.
👇 Have you ever been in a situation you struggled to accept? How did you find peace?
