about us

As we realized how many women are being impacted by sexual betrayal, we were inspired to combine our diverse and vast backgrounds to help women understand what is happening to them and then learn how to heal.

 We are here for you.

How We Started

After creating programs for men struggling with sex addiction, Dr. Trish Leigh, who is trained to help women struggling from Sexual Betrayal Trauma, did not want to leave partners behind in this movement of healing and recovery.

Coming Together

So, Dr. Trish joined forces with mental health therapist Adria Sullivan to bring a partners’ program to life. This program is dedicated to helping women regain their strength and power so they can heal.

Where we are now

Here, at Sanity After Betrayal, women are supported in figuring out if healing is truly possible in their relationship and, if so, how to foster it. If not, learn when and how to leave in a healthy way. Sexual betrayal is on the rise and women need this program now more than ever.

My heart breaks for all the men, women, and families suffering at the hands of sexual betrayal. When I learned that compulsive hypersexuality behavior disorder impairs the way a person’s brain performs, my mind was literally blown. I couldn’t sit still and watch sexual betrayal destroy people’s brains, hearts, and lives while nobody talked about it. So… I started talking about. Then I inspired Adria to talk about too. 

After being personally impacted by porn and sex addiction, I had to take a step back to research, process and integrate how porn and sex were impacting men and thus, how it was changing the way they acted toward their partners and children. Now, I know ALL of the pieces that make up this convoluted, complex situation. I also learned how to help people successfully heal and I want to share it with anyone who is interested. 

Porn and sex become highly addictive to many men as a self-soothing mechanism for stress. Although it has little to do with sex, and everything to do with their brains, it is devastating to partners and creates betrayal of the worse kind. 

As a Neurofeedback Therapy professional with a thriving private practice – not to mention raising 5 children – I was perfectly poised with the knowledge, skills, and inspiration to bring this issue to light and help people heal. I have created programs called Porn Brain Rewire over at drtrishleigh.com that help men heal their brains and recover from porn and sex addiction. I have also established a non-profit organization, Porn Brain Prevention, to help teens avoid porn use in the first place, preventing the next generation from perpetuating sexual betrayal. You can find it at pornbrainprevention.com.

From helping thousands of men heal from sex addiction, I know this… most relationships can heal if partners become honest with themselves and each other and learn to share that honesty in a healthy way (that is a BIG if). Whether your relationship can heal or if it is time for you to create a new healthy relationship. Recovery is still essential for your health and wellness. If you are reading this, I want you to know that you can heal from this situation and come out the other side stronger than ever. Cliché, I know… but true. I am here for you. When you are ready, let’s get started.
