Emotional Intelligence (EQ)


Hello! 
I am Dr. Patt), co-owner with my husband, Darrel Hollinger, MEd, MBA, of the St. Louis Emotional Intelligence Center LLC- HireCoach® (STLEIC). In addition to being a state licensed mental health therapist and certified teacher, I am certified in social and emotional intelligence. Did you know that while you cannot raise your IQ, you CAN increase your emotional intelligence (EQ)?  

Helping people build excellent relationships supported by emotional intelligence (EQ) 

is my passion and expert focus.  

SO what is EQ?

 “Simply put, EQ is first, becoming fully aware of your emotions, and then naming, managing, and consciously expressing your emotions appropriately to build an awesome life and personal/business relationships.” (Patt H. Pickett, SEICC, LMFT, MEd, PhD, 2019)

Actively apply your EQ to achieve your goals by overcome limiting emotions, behaviors, and beliefs that keep you stuck.  Move forward!


FULL SPECTRUM of MENTAL HEALTH and WELLNESS SERVICES:

EMOTIONAL TURMOIL or PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL CAREER DEVELOPMENT

Are you searching to team up with a professional provider for support and help to take your personal/business life and relationships up-to-the-next-level? Do you have goals to reach? Need to set goals?  Or are you in emotional turmoil or in a mental downturn that you cannot shake? Maybe, you are stuck in one of those life "ruts”? Want an escape plan? I will effectively guide and teach you the tips, tools, and strategies to achieve your goals and live your best life.

At a personal level, here is what you can expect from me. Clients value the unique combination of my sensitivity and my directness because I do not “beat”.

I do not “beat down” clients. I do not “beat around” bushes. Your time is valuable.

Teaming up with me brings to you my out-of-the-box wisdom, a can-do attitude, and snappy wit. Two of my favorite and typical comments from clients are (paraphrased), ‘I never thought about it that way before’ and ‘I learned more in under an hour with you than I did from others in several meetings.’

When you hire me, you also get the concrete benefits of the ideal combination of the highest academic education, specialty professional training/licensure and credentials with decades of professional experience (including over 10,000 conversations with individuals/ couples).

Actively apply your EQ to achieve your goals by overcome limiting emotions, behaviors, and beliefs that keep you stuck.  Move forward!


WHY HIRE A STATE LICENSED PROFESSIONAL?

Because I am state licensed, I am legally qualified and ethically approved to deliver the full spectrum of expert mental health/wellness services you want. When it comes achieving success with your specific goals, consider whether you want to narrow your service options by working with a non-licensed person, even a subject-matter-expert (SME).**

Your mental health and wellness are precious and deserve the best care and support.

STLEIC professional services include: action-oriented consultation – my reputation is that I am “easy to talk-to” | coaching| counseling| online EQ testing| speaking presentations and in my role as a state certified teacher--- business training | couples’ classes| marriage groups| emotional intelligence workshops.


SELF-HELP RESOURCES

Want self-help resources? My multi-award-winning book is available: The Marriage Whisperer, Tips to Improve Your Relationship Overnight and a related card game deck, The Marriage Whisperer Challenge, which has a relationship tip on each card. I also wrote the highly recommended, Awesome Couple Communication: Expressing What You Mean and Understanding What the Other Meant. Books are available online/in stores or at HireCoach.com.

**IMPORTANT NOTE: There are legal and ethical rules which strictly limit services provided by non-licensed providers who identify as coaches, consultants, guides, SMEs, or similar titles.  Licensing laws prohibit non-licensed persons from providing services addressing emotional and mental health needs because they are not professionally or legally qualified to do so. For SPECIFIC details, see state statutes on professional licensing.)
