On September 4, 2011 psychologist Norman Davis surrendered his license to the California Board of Psychology on Board charges of engaging in a sexual relationship with a patient, unprofessional conduct, gross negligence and repeated negligent acts.
According to the Board’s document, in approximately January 2002, Davis began treating a 31-year-old female patient (“J.E.”) for depression. He treated approximately every two weeks from 2002 to 2008.
In June 2007, he invited her to his home, where he “discussed his personal problems…served and drank wine with J.E., and engaged in sexual activity, including fellatio and intercourse. Between June and August 2007, Davis engaged the patient in sexual relations on about 10 separate occasions. Davis hired J.E. as his secretary in August 2007.
She continued to work for him into April 2008 but filed a complaint against him after disclosing to her new therapist that her Davis had engaged her in sexual relations.
