Finding a Christian psychiatrist is not as simple as finding a Christian counselor, which can include therapists with a variety of other credentials. However, The Christian Care Network and Focus on the Family both offer online directories of Christian counselors, including psychiatrists.
The Christian Care Network is a national referral network of certified and licensed Christian counselors who incorporate the principles of their religion into their individual practices. Each practitioner is currently a member of the American Association of Christian Counselors. To search for a counselor near them, those using the online directory enter their zip code and the radius in which they are willing to travel to visit a counselor. The website director is updated annually.
Focus on the Family also offers an online directory of Christian therapists, including psychiatrists. It offers searches based on city and state or zip code and specialty. The organization's website also offers tips for choosing a counselor, including information on the difference between various credentials and the importance of choosing a counselor with a particular therapy when that is a crucial factor in treatment. The site suggests questions to ask a counselor before agreeing to undergo treatment to improve the likelihood a particular therapist will be able to help.
