Sex With Therapist Was “Part Of The Necessary Treatment”

A married couple sued their marriage counselor for “severe emotional distress, irreparable damages to their marital relationship, and other damages” in Midland, Texas court claiming that he “used his authority as the plaintiffs’ counselor and used privileged information obtained from the plaintiffs to create and begin an intimate, sexual relationship” with the wife.  The couple separately sought help with their marital problems from the licensed counselor for a period of a year and a half, ending in November 2009.  The wife met him more frequently than the husband and she claims that the therapist persuaded her to have sex with him, claiming that this was “part of the necessary treatment”.  Husband was unaware of the affair and both are now suing.  (Source)
