Is It Legal for a Clinical Psychologist in Private Practice to Mention Religion at Work?

Question by Anne: Is it legal for a clinical psychologist in private practice to mention religion at work?
By “private practice”, I mean they have their own clinic but still answer to the state or whoever makes the rules a clinical psychologist has to follow (who make rules such as the confidentiality law) . Are they allowed to say to a patient with depression “I think joining a religion would help” or things like that? Thanks.

Why does it worry you that much, as far as I see he was just merely stating some form of help which to me would not alarm me.
