Maryland counselor Stephen Sayre surrenders license while under investigation for sex with female patient

Filed under: Uncategorized — Psych Crime Reporter @ 5:12 pm

On July 5, 2011, the Maryland Board of Professional Counselors and Therapists accepted the voluntary surrender of licensed clinical professional counselor Stephen Sayre.

The Board’s document in this matter consists of a formal letter written by Sayre in which he acknowledges that he decided to surrender his license willingly due to an investigation on allegations that he engaged in a sexual relationship and dual relationship with a female patient during the course of the client-counselor relationship and that he exploited the client for his own personal advantage.

Further, Sayre acknowledged that he was aware that the client suffered from a complex medical/psychiatric history including a significant head trauma; sexual abuse and exploitation; prior suicide attempts and drug and alcohol abuse/addiction, among other things.

Lastly, he admitted that despite this knowledge, he entered into a social and sexual relationship with the client; allowed the client to stay in his home; provided her transportation; posted bail for her and paid for her to enter into a substance abuse rehab program, among other things.
