A Huntington man has pleaded not guilty to charges he practiced psychology without a license.
Adam M. Goldrusso, 46, also pleaded not guilty to second-degree criminal sale of marijuana. The Suffolk County District Attorney's Office said that Goldrusso "did practice and held himself out to practice, psychology by identifying himself as a licensed psychologist and by engaging in counseling and/or psychotherapy."
It was not immediately known how many people he treated.
The unauthorized practice of a professional is a violation of state education law.
Both charges are felonies.
Goldrusso, 46, is due back in court May 10.
The practice and the marijuana sale of 390 grams of marijuana allegedly occurred at of 22 Gaines St., Huntington.
He previously was charged with issuing a bad check in July of last year in the amount of $2,670., the office said. He is also charged with forgery in the second degree for signing the name of the same woman on a check for $825.
