State suspends mental health counselor Timothy Latsko for sex with patient
April 12, 2012
On March 19, 2012, the Virginia Board of Counseling placed licensed professional counselor and marriage and family therapist Timothy W. Latsko on indefinited probation for not less than one year, subject to terms and conditions. According to the Board’s Consent Order, in late 2009, Latsko entered into a sexual relationship with former client, within three months of the termination of the therapeutic relationship. It further states that Latsko failed to maintain certain client materials securely by storing boxes of such material in the garage of the former client with whom he was having the sexual relationship. Those materials, the Board noted, are still in possession of the former client. The conditions of Latsko’s probation include supervision of his practice by a Board-approved supervisor, among other things.
