Allow client and counselor freedom of religion

A counselor cannot force his or her religious ideologies upon a client, but if a client should want to help in overcoming struggles regarding sexual orientation or gender confusion there should not be any obstacle imposed by the state to inhibit his or her ability to obtain this help from a counselor who holds the same values that they do.
