Please allow those who seek counseling to be set free!
 

Change, healing, and wholeness in the area of sexuality is possible, and it has been seen throughout many inspiring success stories.
Biologically-affirming counseling works to help the countless number of people whose lives have been transformed through conversation-based counseling that helps a person address the underlying issues. The Changed movement - a growing group of overcomers who used to identify as LGBTQ - provides conclusive proof of the transformative power of faith-and-science-based counseling that is helping so many people walk away from feelings and identifications from which they seek to be free.  It is unjust and cruel to deny this counseling to patients who are seeking it, or to punish licensed counselors who are called to compassionately help them find it.

Please allow those who seek counseling to be set free!
