Therapist Dates Patient Gets Matching Tattoos Loses License
The Washington Department of Health has accepted the surrendered credential of a Benton County mental health counselor under an agreement with the Mental Health Counselor Program, the department which regulates health care providers.
Brenda Lea Vanderpool's license was initially suspended in 2014 after she developed a relationship with a patient. This relationship included pet names, kayaking, attending a Bible study group, dinner dates, meetings at parks, daily visits, overnight trips and matching tattoos, according to a report from the state.
