Maybe I came across as disparaging of the psych professions, which wasn't my aim.
In my case, I was fortunate to meet a Christian psych who helped me invaluably. And like you, I know God's hand was all over that introduction and subsequent meetings. It was a real, genuine answer to prayer and I thank God for that person.
There were, however, others (counselors, psychs) who seemed to dismiss the idea or existence of God. Maybe I was just paranoid but they seemed to be being secretly judging me for believing in a "giant sky fairy", or whatever they call God these days. I didn't have any confidence that they'd be able to help me.
Maybe as individuals we get different answers to our prayers but personally I didn't want to go to someone outside the body of Christ.
That isn't to say God can't use an unbeliever... it's just that I apply the principle of 1 Corinthians 6, regarding taking believers to court. I don't think it's a stretch to apply it to my situation. But I don't want to argue about it either so please just take this as an opinion not an disagreement
