I am another professional who has been victimized by this board, Debra Rinaudo and Tami Thurr. Filing an application with this board seems to be a secretive and rather fearful experience because one is dependent on the wimps of the Executive Director and her accomplices. Knowing about Rinaudo's history of ehtics violations, what business does she have to be on a board and decide who gets licensed or not. Because she was barred from practicing law does not give her the right to avange her crime on innocent others who are truly dedicated counselors and professionals. I was ridiculed, humiliated, and bullied by her, and the board. Every eroneous accusation was twisted, exaggerated, minimized, while the ED and the committee members made fun of me and laughing. I did not think it of a laughing matter when my career is on the line. After the treatment during this committee meeting I was in shock. I could not understand such a misscariage of justice to be happening in the United States. I loved my profession helping others to change their lives for the better. These people distorted my honesty, smeared my reputation as a professional and a human being while they topped it all of by disclosing my medical history to the public. The ED also colaborated with the law firm I had hired to milk me of my money (over $40000) and then the attorney negotiated my license away. In sum, I have experienced the same that others reported about this Board. They are only interested who they can attack next. These regulatory boards get appointed by the Governor while the Legislature allows them to do what they want. Instead of edifying the profession they treat all therapists and counselors like criminals. Those of you who have written reports about Debra Rinaudo and the Board it could only benefit us to band together and perhaps file a class action law suit against the State and the Board.
