Georgia therapist arrested in Iowa

CARTER LAKE, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say an Atlanta therapist who is accused of abusing her clients' trust to swindle them out of thousands of dollars has been arrested in far western Iowa.

A fugitive task force took Colleen Higgins into custody Tuesday morning at a Super 8 motel in Carter Lake.

Higgins was booked into the Pottawattamie County jail on multiple counts of theft by deception on a warrant issued in Georgia.

According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, which reported on the accusations last year, a board that oversees Georgia therapists and social workers asked a judge to revoke Higgins license on the grounds of unprofessional conduct and ethics violations.
