Atheist Psychiatrists in Baltimore?

A former member
Post #: 1
Hi everyone!

I am new to the group and to Baltimore in general, and I was wondering if anyone knows of any Atheist psychiatrists in the Baltimore area.

Thanks!

Would a licensed counselor be enough, or do you need a psychiatrist?
I know a counselor who describes his outlook as existentialist (which does
not imply atheist but might be philosphically close enough).

I'm guessing that it may have to do with some religious people's stance on all ails being healed through the power of god at times.
Although most professionals should know better than that.

I heard of the following site on a podcast. It lets therapists and potential clients register anonymously. It looks like they only have a small number of therapists registered so far but it is an interesting concept

in the interview Daniel Ray said something like "if you are a secular person, or athiest, do you really want to talk through your problems with someone whose ultimate answer for problems is god and who may or may not look to secular, evidence based practices for therapy?"

A good therapist would leave his/her belief systems out of the equation. As long as you're up front with your stance, a professional would be mindful of that and not try to turn your beliefs into his/her own.

That said, I don't know of any specifically because most good therapists generally leave that part of themselves, which is personal, off of their resume's. But the best suggestion I can give is call around or search the web to find someone you think might fit you best. A good therapist will also give you referrals if you decide he/she is not a good fit for you.
