Everett Based Counselor Loses License For Sex With Patient – Public Data Ferret

August 9, 2011


Digging for truth and voluntary government transparency

A woman named Dana Blyzes who state officials say resided in Bothell and was employed as a counselor at Sunrise Community Mental Health in Everett has surrendered her license as a registered “agency affiliated counselor” for at least three years after the State of Washington charged her with unprofessional conduct for having sex with a patient. The worker designation refers to counselors including mental health professionals without degrees, or advanced degrees. According to the department, the encounter occurred in Blyzes’ Bothell home with a male Marysville client who according to investigators appeared to reside with his mother.
