Advice & Tips: When I talk to my Psychiatrist I know that I will never be sitting somewhere and see the person that I have spilled my guts to like I would if I had talked to a friend as openly as I talk to Dr. O. With Dr. O I can be myself and tell him everything that is going on in my life without fear of repercussions or someone having ammunition to hold over my head. With Dr. O I can be assured of complete professionalism and I know that he would never let any of my secrets that I tell him out to anyone. I have been seeing the same psychiatrist now for over 20 years and we are very close and I would recommend this form of therapy to everyone. I really feel like a weight has been taken off of me after my appointments with Dr. O.
