Counselors cannot help persons overcome their unwanted same sex attractions

Excuse me, but individuals seek counseling for individual needs. If a person seeks counselling to overcome UNWANTED same sex attractions, counselors should not be prohibited from providing the counselling. The reason for the law is because this counselling may be harmful. Certainly not to everyone. The data you are using is limited and the law is biased because of the overwhelming influence of the LGBTetc. agenda. Please consider that counselling is an individual need and as such should not be prohibited for a select group of people.
