Oregon VA counselor admits to sex with client

ROSEBURG, Ore. — A social worker fired by the Roseburg Veterans Affairs Medical Center for allegedly having sex with a client has finally admitted to the wrongdoing and has been stripped of her license.
The Roseburg News-Review reported that Jamie Carlson, 32, surrendered her license earlier this month. She will be barred from practicing social work in the state for at least three years.
Carlson admitted she had an intimate relationship with a man who attended 19 group sessions she led at the VA between 2007 and 2011. She told investigators the relationship began in 2011, after the last session he attended.
State ethics rules forbid social workers from entering into a relationship with a client within three years of counseling.
Carlson previously denied any improper behavior with the veteran.
