Counseling For Those who Do Not Want Same-Sex Attraction

Please do not punish  licensed counselors for helping patients overcome their unwanted same-sex feelings of attraction. Why should an individual not be allowed to live the lifestyle they want? No matter if they are gay, straight, Jewish, Muslim, or Christian. Smoker or non-smoker. Vegan or meat eater. Is not the goal here for people to have the choice to be what they choose to be? Or is it that like too often is the case the majority in power wants to dictate to everyone else what is morally acceptable?
