On May 13, 2011, the Minnesota Board of Psychology suspended the license of Lisette Wright, M.A., L.P. for unprofessional conduct and sexual contact with a former client.

According to the Board’s Stipulation and Consent Order, Wright providing psychological services to “Client #1,” conducting 84 in-person therapy sessions.

The client had come to Wright with feelings of stress and anxiety. The sessions evolved to focus on the client’s sexuality and marital conflict. Immediately after officially terminating the professional relationship in writing, Wright engaged in a sexual relationship with the client, including sexual intercourse and/or other physical intimacies.

On January 19, 2011, the Board issued Wright a Stipulation to Cease Practice. With the issuance of the current Stipulation and Consent Order, the January 19th order is rescinded and the current Stipulation, which calls for indefinite suspension, is given full force and effect.

Wright is additionally required to obtain additional continuing education in boundaries, among other things, and must petition to get her license back, at which time she would be subject to practice monitoring.
