WHAT WE BELIVE
PATH believes in the individual’s right to self-determination, and advocates for the freedom of human expression.
PATH does not subscribe to the use of "Conversion Therapy." We believe in equality, tolerance and diversity for all views of sexuality and gender expression.
For three and a half decades, Richard Cohen, M.A., has practiced Sexual Orientation Therapy. He has never practiced, nor subscribed to the use of "Conversion Therapy."
The Wikipedia page about our Executive Director, Richard A. Cohen, was created by and continues to be edited by LGBTQ+ activists. The page is biased and not an accurate account of his life's work.
We offer help and hope to those who are motivated to change. We believe in free agency.
PATH adheres to the common ideals of all religious traditions—faith, family, compassion, and love.
Man in the Arena
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
― Theodore Roosevelt
Paris, April 23, 1910
