Fighting against therapist abuse!

Support Lynette's Law for Maryland!

Every day, more and more people are being sexually abused by their therapists. If you check the disciplinary matters page for the Maryland Board of Professional Therapist and Counselors website, you will see that month after month, year after year therapists are being temporarily suspended for sexually abusing their clients. Therapist abuse needs to be a crime!


A Bittersweet Farewell

I started this website back in 2012, and I had no idea the impact it would make. I also didn’t realize how hard it was going to be to pass this type of legislation, and the time and commitment it would take.

I’ve personally funded this site, as well as legislative efforts to pass this legislation, and legislation requiring criminal background checks for mental health professionals and doctors in multiple states for a few years now.

As a few professionals who have spent the majority of their careers doing what I’m doing have told me i would reach this point; I am ready to move on now.

Lynette’s law is currently in Maryland, WV, and DE. Criminal background checks is running once again in WV, and was withdrawn by Senator Peterson in VA.

I’m thankful for all the comments, the emails, and all those who have inspired me to keep fighting for this.

You are never alone, and it only takes 1 person to stand up and make a difference, and I think we all should.

Love Always,
Heather Lynette Sinclair

Lynette’s Law Passes Unanimously In Delaware!

Legislators in the state of Delaware understand what it means to help protect its citizens from sexually exploitative mental health professionals and have passed Lynette’s Law in The First State! That now makes 28 states that have now made this abuse a crime!

This bill creates a felony level offense for a person that is a health professional and in the course of providing professional health services to the victim, intentionally has sexual contact with the victim. This bill adds to the existing crime of unlawful sexual contact in the second degree and makes the conduct described therein as a felony offense, rather than a misdemeanor, due to the vulnerability of the victim as a patient seeking services from a health professional.

At 9:40 PM on June 30, 2015, the Delaware Senate passed the bill unanimously. Take a look at the bill information here:
