On October 26, 2009, the Maine Board of Counseling Professionals Licensure formally reprimanded counselor Anne G. Dellenbaugh and accepted the permanent surrender of professional counselor registration.
These actions were based on the Board’s response to a complaint which it received in January 2009 from one of Dellenbaugh’s peer, alleging that Dellenbaugh admitted to being in an “intimate, romantic relationship with a counseling client.”
The Board’s document further states that Dellenbaugh admitted that she terminated the therapist-client relationship in April 2008 due to the client’s expressed personal attraction and her own unexpressed reciprocation and that she engaged in a personal relationship with a former client beginning in July 2008 and proceeded to a sexual relationship in December 2008.
