As I recall, Dr. James C. Dobson has a Ph.D. in clinical psychology. He is not
an M.D. or a psychiatrist. The names of Christian psychiatrists that come to
my mind, however, are Minirth and Meier. They have a clinic in the Dallas
area, I believe, and I think also in other parts of the country. They are the
authors of a few different books and are occasionally guests on the Focus on
the Family broadcast. Another name I thought of is Gary Smalley, but I am not
absolutely sure he is a psychiatrist.

Hope this helps,
