    About Brannon Patrick:Brannon is the co-creator of Therapy Utah, Brannon Patrick has treated almost every kind of addiction in every conceivable setting.

    Brannon began his career in an inpatient psychiatric unit and then spent years gaining experience in an intensive outpatient setting. During his many years of clinical work, he received specialized training, including training to become a Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist. In addition to his work with Therapy Utah, Brannon Patrick is also a writer, blogger, podcaster, and content creator. He was known for years as The Expert on The Betrayed, The Addicted and The Expert—a podcast he co-hosted with Ashlynn and Coby Mitchell before starting his show "Therapy Brothers" with his brother Tyler.

    Brannon’s greatest training has been in real life—he has been married to his wife for over 15 years, and like any relationship, they work hard at it. Learning how to create safety, hold space, allow for their own individuality, and work through conflict has given Brannon invaluable insights that support his work with clients of all kinds. To this day, Brannon believes that his wife, Jenny, has been his greatest teacher—and that his most important role is as a father and husband.

    "No More Mr. Nice Guy" - with Dr. Robert Glover - Episode 239

    The need to be accepted, combined with the fear of abandonment and rejection can lead us into becoming what other people want us to be while hiding who we truly are. This can drive us to deceit, manipulation, lies, and betrayal. In this episode I have invited Dr. Robert Glover to discuss his book, “No More Mr. Nice Guy”. Join us as we discuss the need for emotional honesty and authenticity in order to build healthy connections. Dr. Glover also covers the impact of fathers and generational patterns, the need for masculine initiation, and the transition from ‘Nice Guy’ to authenticity.

And I said podcasts weren’t for me

I heard everyone talking about podcasts, and tried a few, but just couldn’t get into them… until these. Wow, Geoff and Jody are so easy to listen to, giving clear understanding on so many topics I never thought I’d find answers to regarding betrayal and porn/sex addiction. I found myself binge listening every time I got in my car and said to myself “ Yes! That’s exactly what’s going on.” Every episode shed more light not only my struggles but my husband’s too. We are grateful to have these resources and highly recommend them!

Take caution

If you are desperate for help, just know that there is better help out there than this guy. Speaking from personal experience. If anything, use the information in his free podcasts but having invested in his courses and done therapy with him, DO NOT spend a dime on his overpriced sessions or courses. There’s much better help out there for much more reasonable prices.

Best betrayal and recovery podcast

This couple has the best podcast for recovering couples… they offer tremendous wisdom, the stuff that really makes the difference. I have recommended this podcast to many many clients. I love the way Geoff and Jody illuminate the possibility of healing and the necessary insights along the way. The content they share is so worthwhile for anyone who has faced intimate betrayal. I love their approach and respect their expertise a great deal.
