She's a lovely psychiatrist, who cares more about you as a person than as a patient whom she prescribes medication to. Such a warm aura, super intelligent, and respectful.
I thought highly of Dr. Tyson - enough to continue. I have been seein Dr Tyson for two + years, and have - and done some good personal and relationship work throughout two years. She has helped me through some very challenging times.
