Steven Brodsky, a psychologist who specializes in obsessive-compulsive disorder, says that at any one time he has a "handful" of clients who are straight and suspect that they are gay. Brodsky said he determined his patient had OCD associated with homosexuality. This patient was straight, according to Brodsky, but he had intrusive thoughts that were not based on any hard reality in his behavior. Brodsky said a previous therapist had misdiagnosed his patient as gay, and at the patient's request, sent him off to reparative therapy , a controversial method that has not been proven to be effective and can be harmful. But, he says health professionals need a better understanding of OCD so patients receive proper treatment for a mental obsession, rather than counseling for a sexual orientation crisis that he says has nothing to do with mental illness. Even though they know that they are percent straight, not gay, they second guess it.
