Welcome Good With Me Friends!

I'm Patricia Noll, author, speaker, consultant, self-esteem expert, licensed mental health counselor, certified addictions professional, acupuncture physician, and the author of the book Good With Me.

My passion is revealing to you the path to real happiness.

I have been privileged to interact with each and every person who has come to me for help, and through those special relationships, I am blessed to be someone who enjoys real happiness that can only come from within. It is an authentic happiness that anyone who is self-dependent can own and experience. I am absolutely convinced that the time has never been more right for each of us to learn how to experience real happiness from the inside out by becoming a Good With Me™ person!

Why Should you Listen to Me?


As the founder and owner of a state-licensed outpatient substance abuse program, Focus One, I treated thousands of troubled individuals from all walks of life for the past 25+ years.. Many of these individuals were referred to me as the result of a drug- and/or alcohol-related offense.

Others came to me voluntarily because their lives were falling apart. They were depressed, angry, anxious, unhappy, discontent, their relationships were a mess, they were in financial trouble and/or they had an addiction to someone or something.

I’m proud to be a partner with Selfgrowth.com!

“Focus One offers practical and sensible guidelines for those who seek freedom from all types of addictions.”

My Big 'AH-HA!' Moment


It was here that I recognized that there was a common thread among them: I discovered a lack of self-esteem because society had taught them to be other-dependent. I began to look at my own life in my personal quest for happiness and discovered that most of us have been taught to depend upon something albeit drugs and alcohol, bag after bag of potato chips, the right relationship partner, plenty of money, being the best, and a myriad of other things to make us happy.

My Big AH-HA Moment? I realized that society is unknowingly promoting other-dependent esteem instead of self-dependent esteem. I have become an expert at showing people how to make the shift from being other-dependent for their happiness to becoming self-dependent and experience real happiness from the inside out. And just like you, I’ve been where you’re at. I’ve applied the exact same principles to myself that I would give to you – and they work.

This Is Why I Would Love To Meet You!

If you want to start by dipping your toes in the water, I’ll make it easy for you. Get my complimentary 1st chapter of Good With Me and allow me to take you by the hand and share with you what I have learned and others have learned: how to be a Good With Me™ person. I am deeply honored to have the opportunity to do so. While my theory of other-dependent esteem contradicts much of traditional psychology, it explains why so few people are happy. It explains why so many individuals have given up and are lost. And haven’t you tried almost everything else?

And my hunch is that is hasn’t worked out for you, just like it didn’t work out for me, and you’re here because you’re still looking for a path that leads to real happiness. Am I right?


Please know that I am still a student of the universe. I continue to learn each and every day just as you do. What I share with you here at this website and community is the result of my own personal quest for real happiness. For me, learning how to become self-dependent so that I take responsibility for my own happiness from the inside out is groundbreaking, exciting, and opens up unlimited possibilities that people like you and me could only dream about.

“If you have ever reached a goal and yet not felt satisfied, Good With Me will show you why that is and how you can change that. Permanently.”

—Laura Atchison – Bestselling author of What Would a Wise Woman Do?
