Kristina Daul, 42, who worked for Waukesha County Health and Human Services, is charged with felony exploitation of a client, Fox News reports.

The sexual relationship allegedly lasted from December 2020 until last summer.

The female patient had been getting treatment for drug and alcohol addiction. She told detectives that she and Daul would engage in sex acts at the therapist’s office, frequently hanging a “do not disturb” sign on the door.

Eventually, the sex moved to their respective homes.

According to the criminal complaint, one witness who was friends with the victim for five years told cops she was worried the therapist was “manipulating” the woman’s meds.

Eventually, the patient told the witness about the affair and said her treatments were changed when she and Daul were “fighting or not getting along.”

In addition, she told cops she became privy to “protected health information” for 20 to 30 of the therapist’s other clients. Sometimes, she said, the pair would have sexual intercourse while Daul provided therapy sessions over the phone.

Cops say that Daul once wrote of the relationship:  “chose LOVE over ethics – which was wrong of me.” Daul filed a temporary restraining order against the patient in August 2021, writing the woman was an ex-girlfriend who had cost Daul her job.

On her Instagram page, Daul describes herself as “Pangender/pansexual/demisexual, Spiritual, trusts intuition, generous, compassionate, driven, independent, loyal & trustworthy #NDE #faithoverfear.”
