Washington State revokes mental health counselor's license for sex with client

April 29, 2008

On April 29, 2008 the Washington Department of Health Registered Counselor Program revoked counselor Carli R. Brown's registration for unprofessional conduct. The Department's Findings of Fact, Conclusions Law and Final Order of Default states that while employed as a mental health technician at a supervised transitional living agency for adults with mental illness, Brown engaged in a "romantic and sexual relationship" with a client of the facility. The Order states that Brown "touched or fondled [the client] in a sexual manner...wrote...several letters, in which she described her deep emotional attachment" and "detailed her sexual feelings toward" the client. Brown admitted to having sexual intercourse with the client at least three times. She may not submit a petition for reinstatement of her credential for at least 10 years.1
