Princess Cheyenne, stripper, ALLEGEDLY practiced as unlicensed psychologist

Anyone remember Princess Cheyenne? If not you might have heard about a South Shore woman has been indicted on charges she has ALLEGEDLY practiced for years as an unlicensed psychologist, state authorities said Thursday. Louise Wightman, 46, of Hull, was indicted by a Suffolk County grand jury on several counts of filing false health care claims, insurance fraud, and larceny over $250, according to Attorney General Thomas Reilly’s office.

Wightman, who also was indicted on one count of practicing psychology without a license, has been summonsed to court for arraignment on Oct. 20.

Lucy Wightman, a former exotic dancer who used the name “Princess Cheyenne,” allegedly saw patients at South Shore Psychology Associates, a business she founded more than five years ago.

Reilly’s office alleged that Wightman has never applied for or received a license to practice as a psychologist in Massachusetts, which requires a doctoral degree in psychology from a state-recognized program.

Wightman, who has a masters degree in counseling psychology, is allowed to practice as a psychotherapist, which does not require a state license, the attorney general’s office said.

State investigators said most of her clients were school-age children and teenage girls with eating disorders.

Wightman’s phone number in Hull is non-published.
