On October 6, 2009, the Washington Department of Health (DoH) issued a Statement of Charges on mental health counselor David E. Weed, for unprofessional conduct and sexual misconduct.
According to the DoH’s document, in September 2006, Weed provided mental health therapy to Client A and Client B, a married couple, for family and marital difficulties. Soon after, each client began receiving individual counseling from Weed.
The husband remained in counseling until at least October 2008.
Weed also treated Client C, the couple’s teenage daughter, from Spring 2005 to summer 2007.
In April 2007, Client A terminated therapy with Weed by mutual consent and agreement. Client A disclosed at that time that she was attracted to him. Weed continued to provide therapy to Clients B and C.
Beginning in September 2007, Weed entered into a sexual relationship with client A and continued it for approximately a year during which time he told Client A that he had stopped providing services to Clients B and C, which was not true.
