It was indeed helpful… I am now moving on…”
“I have read many articles on this topic,
which concerns me personally, and I identify
with everything you say. Thank you for sharing your wisdom.”
“…I’ve learned more from you in three sessions
than I have in years of therapy with others.”
“(My wife) and I wanted to drop a note to let you know how were doing…
We’re doing great, but concerned that we didn’t do it all sooner!
We continue to wonder how we lived separate lives for so long…
Main thing is that we are having fun, getting along better than ever
and wanted you to know… Cordially,”
“I’m not sure you will remember (my wife) and I,
but thank you for your help. I have not mastered the art of juggling
quite yet, but I have realized which of the balls are dearest to me.
I’m juggling those glass balls of life a lot better.
I don’t drop those anymore. Thank you again.”
“(Patt) helped me understand in minutes,
what I’ve been trying understand for years.”
“Wow, I never thought about it that way before.”
“I left feeling energized.”
“… (My husband) said, ‘I like her, she really got to the meat and potatoes’…
I asked, ‘how did that feel when Patt gave you the ball?
His answer was, ‘I felt like she gave me the ball—literally—
now I have to show you my shot!’
I sent you a dear friend of mine…
I am so thankful for you being out there.”
“Thank you for helping me get my life back. I am truly grateful.
I will remember you forever. With sincere gratitude, ”

and hope you know you’ve made my (life) journey easier.”
“My husband looks for a ‘Pickett’ to help him wherever he goes.”
“Has it been a year since I’ve talk to you? Or more? I’m doing well,
but I miss talking you. Thanks for all you’ve done for me!”
“These are few of the things you said to me, that help me live my life
the way it should be lived. I keep them pasted on my desk so that I can
look at these words of wisdom when I need a helping hand…”
“Thanks for challenging my mind and for having the skills
to listen, understand, and empathize.”
“Patt, just a special ‘thanks’ for all the wonderful help and advice
you have given to me and for us. So much in my life has
changed over the past few months for the better.
I want to thank you and tell you how much our talks have meant.
I don’t know where I would be today without your (help).”
Thank you and bless you.”
“You are truly very talented and skilled.”
“… I felt challenged by some of the things you said;
a question or alternative statement of another viewpoint that you’d
throw out. It was ironic to me because I felt a challenge to think
but didn’t feel emotionally challenged…”
