Ex-gay Clients of Reparative therapy
My name is Father Bob and I am a 41-year-old Catholic priest who is in residence in a diocese. It was about a month after the passing of my dad when I decided to contact Dr. Joe.
“I was the quintessential kid that was set up for homosexuality on several levels. I didn't identify well with my gender, growing up, for various reasons.”

Five men were recruited from the Thomas Aquinas Psychological Clinic while in reparative therapy for issues related to unwanted same-sex Attraction (SSA).
The student has struggled personally with same-sex attractions. In this letter, he seeks to educate his professor about the unmet developmental needs that lay the foundation for homosexual attraction.
[photo: not actual client] My name is Bill and I was in therapy with Dr. Nicolosi for about three years. I’m now in my fifties and I’m an orthopedic surgeon.
There was shame around my homosexual behaviors and I wanted a place to go where I felt safe to confide with some expert who could help me.
The therapy changed my whole mentality for the better. When I started therapy I saw myself as lower than other people, especially when it came to guys.
I pursued therapy with Dr. Nicolosi because my sexual life needed special attention and I wanted the best I could find.
When I entered therapy, I had reached a breaking point in my life.
My name is Paul, and I am 27 years old. I started therapy three years ago and terminated about two months ago.
My name is Dan and I’m 16 years old. I was in therapy with Dr. Nicolosi for about 6-7 months.
My name is Mohammed and I am 28 years old. I am a graduate student living in Cairo. I found Dr. Nicolosi on the Internet at a time when my life was really dark, really painful. I could not stand my same-sex attractions.
