State of Pennsylvania suspends psychologists

January 2, 2013

On July 31, the Pennsylvania Department of State (DoS) suspended psychologist John H. Edgette, pursuant to the Order of the Court of Common Pleas of York County dated July 17, 2012, which the court issued under section 4355 of the Domestic Relations Code, which regards issues of custody, visitation and support.

On November 5, 2012, the DoS temporarily suspended the license of psychologist Richard Scott Lenhart because it determined that his continued practice of psychology was a clear and immediate danger to the public health and safety.

On November 5, 2012, the DoS suspended psychologist Scott Adam Merritt for a period of no less than one year and placed a public reprimand in his permanent disciplinary record with the board because he is unable to practice psychology with reasonable skill and safety by reason of illness or as a result of mental or physical condition.

On November 13, 2012, the DoS ordered psychologist Jennifer Hope Bullock to pay a civil penalty of $500 because she practiced as a licensed professional counselor while her license was lapsed.
