No, I don't beleive in God(s) or crystals or feng shui and I don't much believe in therapy either. But I have been having some depression and anxiety issues that I want to at least try to fix. I know Christian doctors and dentists have that little fish by their names in the yellow pages but what about atheists? Is that something you can ask over the phone? I don't have time to shop around too much during work hours.
I have nothing against religious people, but I have had several bad experiences with therapists (and even job counselors) talking about religion or spirituality as a way to solve things and that just isn't going to work.
I am in my late 30s with good health insurance in the NE US if it matters.
