Offering Psychological Services to
Men and Women Whose Same-Sex Attractions
Do Not Define Them
For many years, I have been assisting men and women – mostly, persons who are still at a crossroads about their sexual identity – to reduce their same-sex attractions and explore their heterosexual potential.
Perhaps you experience same-sex attractions, but you believe you were not destined to be "gay." You believe that these feelings do not represent “who you really are.” Who you are, you believe on some deep intuitive level, must be heterosexual, because our bodies have made us for heterosexuality.
If this is not your belief, then another therapist will better serve you. But if this is your belief, then we may be able to help you, because I am a licensed clinical psychologist who shares your vision of humanity. I believe in the age-old conviction, passed on for centuries through all the world's great religions, that our bodies tell us who we are, and that our bodies have made us for heterosexuality.
Here is how I understand homosexuality:
- We eroticize what we haven't internalized; when a man has experienced a gender wound, he will seek to recapture the lost aspects of his true nature;
- When a trauma has separated a male from other males, same-sex attraction will seek to repair the wound.
I have helped many men reduce their unwanted same-sex attractions, so that they lose their compelling, life-disrupting power, and assisted them in exploring and developing their heterosexual potential.
The Science Behind Our Work
In 1992, I and two psychiatrists organized a professional association called NARTH-- the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (see the website www.narth.com). Today, NARTH has over 1000 members around the world.
On the NARTH website, see “What Research Shows: NARTH's Response to the American Psychological Association’s Claims on Homosexuality.” This paper examines over 100 years of scientific literature on the subject of overcoming unwanted sexual attractions; it offers substantial evidence that for at least some people, sexual orientation can be modified.
