A therapist who was accused of sending a patient photos of herself in lingerie can’t have her state counseling license back, a Commonwealth Court panel ruled Wednesday.

That is so even though Sheri Colston denied sending those photos or having any inappropriate interactions with the male client, the court found in an opinion by Judge Robert Simpson.

The court ruling upholds an indefinite suspension of Colston’s license imposed by the State Board of Social Workers, Marriage and Family Therapists and Professional Counselors. That board also ordered Colston to pay $7,409 to cover the cost of investigating her case.
