On January 10, 2012, the Arizona Board of Behavioral Health Examiners denied Jennifer Hill’s application for licensure as an associate counselor.
The Board’s report states that Hill, while an applicant for licensure, provided counseling to a client, to whom she subsequently providing a ride home in her car. Hill acknowledged that she engaged in intimate sexual relations with the client on three occasions in January and February 2011.
Hill continued to meet and counsel the client but terminated their personal relationship and stopped returning his calls. In July 2011, Hill disclosed to her employer that she’d engaged in a sexual relationship with the client, but only after she’d been alerted by another client of a rumor circulating about the relationship.
