First of all your taking this way to far. She's 9?
All children, and she's a child, are curious and experiment, that does not mean you don''t watch them and counsel them when it happens though. It sounds like your treating her like a monster or something, Love, attention and praise works, sending her to a doctor because you thinks she has committed a sin is what is wrong here. You may need the help, not her.
