Counselors need to be allowed freedom to think, to hear, to interpret and discuss all manner and breadth of the issues presented to them by a patient. It is important to see individuals, rather than interest groups when providing mental health services. I encourage the board to provide for full and open therapy for those confused by gender, offering a full range of solutions to a person’s emotional pain. Additionally, over 80% of gender-confused youth resolve their confusion in favor of their genitalia. Disallowing therapies and conversations that fail to recognize facts is a disservice and potentially malpractice. The science is not settled in favor of transgenderism and, until it is, all options need to be available to those with gender dysphoria.
