Praise for Coming Out Straight


"In this self-help book, ex-gay psychotherapist Cohen writes for gays and lesbians who want to transition to heterosexuality. His comprehensive, well-written, well-organized, and heavily referenced guide views homosexuality as a symptom of disrupted affiliation with the same-sex parent and incomplete feelings of maleness/femaleness, building on the theories of Joseph Nicolosi and Elizabeth Moberly. Cohen's approach is sympathetic and rational and leans mostly on psychosocial factors, but he also assumes nondenominational religious affiliation." 

 —The Library Journal, July 2001

Praise for Counselor Training Program


Richard Cohen, with his keen sensitivity and ability to empower and transform lives, is just phenomenal. Being a part of the training, responding to, and helping persons with same-sex attraction has revolutionized and empowered my ministry tremendously. The content of this training was consistent with the Word, a courageous Work, and challeneged my Will.

—Pastor Anthony Moore, Carolina Missionary Baptist Church 


No one today has more practical, real-life experience helping individuals overcome unwanted same-sex attraction than Richard Cohen. I have applied techniques and ides that I've learned from Richard with great success as I've worked with life-coaching clients and groups. His instruction and mentoring are invaluable.

—Rich Wyler, Founder and Director, People Can Change


I am so blessed to have participated in the first training for certification as a Sexual Reorientation Coach with the International Healing Foundation. I feel it has thoroughly prepared me to deal with clients in this sensitive area. Comprehensive in scope, sensitive in appraoch, and detailed in methodology, this course will untangle the nuances of counseling the struggler with unwanted SSA. As more therapists become familiar with this course, many SSA strugglers who have been disappointed with traditional therapeutic approaches will obrtain the help they need to progress in the difficult journey towards personal wholeness and heterosexuality.
