State of Indiana yanks Nicholas J. Constantine’s psychology license for sex with patient

Filed under: Uncategorized — Psych Crime Reporter @ 11:53 am

On November 23, 2011, the Indiana Board of Psychology revoked the license of psychologist Nicholas J. Constantine.

According to the state’s documents, Constantine began seeing a patient on or about November 2, 2006. In May 2007, he moved his sessions with her outside, first to a fountain near his office, then to the beach, where he would sit with the patient by a fire until sunset, and later at the patient’s home, where he would bring dinner, wine and a movie.

The Board’s document states that at the last session, Constantine took off his clothes, tried to remove the patient’s clothes and attempted to initiate sex with her. He asked her to perform oral sex and she complied briefly before stopping.

The document also states that Constantine brought a “little hand held vibrator” to the patient’s home. It “totally disgusted” her and she attempted to cease contact with Constantine.

The patient filed a civil action against Constantine. In that action, he signed an affidavit stating that that he apologized and acknowledged that he inappropriately had an intimate relationship with the patient, which was unethical.
