Censorship of licensed counselors’ free speech rights

I am asking you not to punish licensed counselors for helping patients overcome their unwanted sexual feelings by affirming biological realities concerning males and females.  A councelor needs to practice as he or she sees fit concerning minor clients and their sexual orientation.  Government interferance has no place in this area and should stay out of this business.  One should not be allow to influence a minor to act on their same sex feelings or transistion especially if they are not allowed to talk them through these unwanted sexual feeling and have them remain the gender God gave them or hetersexual.  These issues should not be sensored either way.  Please do not censor licensed counselors’ free speech rights.
