Massage therapist, psychologist in Bellevue disciplined by DOH after alleged misconduct

Both have either lost their license to practice or had it suspended.

Two Bellevue-practicing health care professionals, including a massage therapist and a psychologist, have had their licenses either lost or suspended after separate instances of misconduct.

Psychologist David B. Allen, who has been licensed since 1979 and practiced at a private clinic in Bellevue, had the surrender of his license accepted by the Psychology Board in November after he was charged with possession of depictions of children engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

In November 2019, law enforcement executed a search warrant at Allen’s residence and found electronic images depicting minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

He Huang has been licensed as a massage therapist since 2015 and practiced at a spa in Bellevue.

In November 2021, the Massage Therapist Program suspended Huang’s license and fined him $1,000 for sexual misconduct after he was accused of groping a clients breasts and buttox in way that is inconsistent with guidelines set out by the Massage Therapist Program. Huang also allegedly failed to correctly document the massage service of the client he reportedly groped.
