Patrick J. Hall, Founder / Owner / President; LMFT CLC: caring for children adolescents/teens and their families, individual adults, couples; and teaching parenting skills. Certified Life Coach
For Patrick, after his faith, his family comes first. The Lotus Group team can testify to how Patrick regularly proclaims, “family before work”. He practices this and supports all of his team doing the same. He enjoys telling others about the moment he knew Lotus Group was actually going to be something he dared to do. “I knew it could happen when Tiffany [my wife] said she did not need to be financially secure as much as she needed me to follow my calling and my heart….and she convinced me she could live in a cardboard box if that is what it took to do so.” Patrick and Tiffany were married in 1999 and have enjoyed doing life together in Noblesville since.
Patrick is anything but your typical counselor. In fact, despite being a very positive, “glass-half-full person”, he is critical and negative about the lack of good mental health providers. This is because he is very passionate about people figuring out life and learning to enjoy what matters most to them….relationships. “The most difficult stories are those where clients have tried other counselors and simply received poor care. Making the decision to invest emotionally and financially in counseling is difficult enough. The last thing you want to have happen is for a client to make the decision, invest the time and energy into getting started, and then find out they have to start over with another professional because the first one simply was not helpful.” Patrick has an outgoing personality and tends to be able to relate to just about anyone. His style is straight-forward and “no-bull” as his clients say. His ability to recognize both sides of a relationship, whether it be husband/wife or child/parent, is one of his many strengths.
Patrick wears a few hats at Lotus Group. He tends to carry a fairly full case load of clients, providing counseling for pre-teens, teens, adults, parents and families. Most tend to look at him cross-eyed when he reveals, “I have a special heart for teens and young adults…the really tough ones.” He also enjoys individual adults, marital and family work. Aside from his therapist role, he also manages the practice, oversees the marketing, and continues to be the visionary for the practice.
On a more personal note, Patrick enjoys working hard and playing hard. In his spare time, you will find him on a date with Tiffany, playing catch on the sidewalk with Nolan, or HORSE in the driveway, riding bikes or hanging at the pool with Taylor and Lexi, or having the guys over for poker night and watching the Colts, IU basketball, or Ohio State football. Near the top of his list you will find passions for time with extended family, travel, beautiful golf courses, friends, and an insatiable desire to experience life and see and do things for the first time. His kids laugh and make fun of him when he licks his finger and makes a checkmark in the air as he says …”check”, indicating another first in his life.
