On May 18, 2012, the Louisiana Licensed Professional Counselors Board of Examiners ordered licensed professional counseling Mary C. Dermody to pay a fine of $300 and investigative costs of $330 to the Board, as well as to complete additional continuing education house in the areas of ethics and clinical documentation.

Dermody had provided 35 counseling sessions to two minor clients. In responding to a request from the minors’ father for all clinical records, Dermody submitted handwritten notes for only four sessions and stated that she does not write many notes.
