WAUKESHA - A Waukesha psychologist and former priest faces revocation of his license after a recent review by a state agency that deduced he took out thousands of dollars in loans from patients that he didnít repay and engaged in unprofessional conduct, such as talking up a strip club to a sex addict.

David F. Mannelli, who has a listed practice in a suite on Grand Avenue in Waukesha, was given a revocation in a final decision July 16 by the state Psychology Examining Board, according to an online file.

Mannelli could not be reached for comment at numbers listed for he or his wife in Fontana and Walworth. His name was no longer included in a directory with a former employer, Cornerstone Counseling Services, which was found online.
