Caleb Lee Brundidge
Life Coach
 

Caleb Lee Brundidge met Richard Cohen at a therapeutic conference in 2000. Being profoundly moved and impressed by Mr. Cohen’s teaching, Caleb began a mentoring relationship with him. Together with what he learned from IHF, support from other men, and a personal relationship with God, Caleb eventually experienced resolution of his sexual orientation conflicts.

For many years he led support groups in his church for those conflicted about their sexuality, and has subsequently led support groups in other venues. Caleb now resides in New Jersey. He co-facilitates IHF's Tender Loving Care (TLC) Healing Seminars, shares his testimony at conferences, and coaches men, parents, clergy, and ministry leaders. He became a Life Coach in 2006. Caleb is available for phone, Skype, and on-line coaching, as well as speaking engagements at churches.
