Counseling Restrictions
 

Counselors should be able to discuss options and resources on any subject including gender identity, sexual preferences, etc.  This effort to restrict a counselor's ability to share resources from multiple points of view will lead to patients not garnering the help they need and could lead to tragic results including suicide.  

Please do not restrict counselor's tools and limit the subjects they can discuss based on a mall minority of people who have an agenda to "change the world" in ways that are not organic or natural but by forcing legislation.
