A prominent Seattle psychologist has been suspended from practice after being accused by the state Board of Psychology of secretly videotaping a woman in his office bathroom.
Stuart Greenberg, who has been licensed in Washington for more than 25 years, was arrested earlier this month on suspicion of voyeurism. He was released after two days in jail and the allegations were passed onto the King County Prosecutor's Office, to decide if there should be criminal charges.
Meanwhile, the Psychology Board suspended Greenberg's license, which means he can't practice pending further action by the board.
Greenberg may request a hearing to fight the suspension. If he does, his credentials would remain suspended until the conclusion of that process.
According to the board, Greenberg hid a camera in the bathroom that was used by co-workers and patients at his practice. He "used the hidden camera to record, for his own gratification, images of others using the bathroom," the board's order states.
In Washington, he was frequently court-appointed as an evaluator in child-custody cases and was a consultant for the Archdiocese of Seattle when it was defending itself in sexual-abuse cases involving priests.
The psychologist's testimony has also been used by plaintiffs' lawyers who sue on behalf of sex-abuse victims.
In addition, he has spoken at national psychology conferences and was president of the American Board of Forensic Psychology.
