Events of GTA VEdit

Isiah Friedlander is Michael's therapist. He sees him once a week. He also has a popular practice on the Pacific Bluffs coastline.

Dr. Friedlander is portrayed as an over-the-top version of a "Hollywood" psychotherapist. He's overpriced (as seen in an email where he raises his rates a reasonable 75%) and seems not to actually care about his patients. In cutscenes he's seen looking at his watch waiting for the session time to expire. He is also not concerned much about Michael's behavior as the latter confesses that he is able to kill without remorse and may have killed someone on the way to Isiah's home. However, he is sort of helpful at some points.

Dr. Friedlander also appears in the mission Reuniting the Family in which he listens to Amanda and Michael argue about their relationship but makes no effort to intervene in any way.

Later in the game (in an optional visit), he tells Michael that he is leaving Los Santos and has gotten his own TV show. He then informs Michael that he needs to find a new therapist and implies that he's going to be using Michael's case in his show. Angry, Michael chases after Friedlander. Michael then has the choice to kill him or let him go.

DestinyEdit

If you happen to kill him, you'd get a refund of all the sessions you've paid as Michael and an internet article confirms his death. The internet article, posted in the news reel from Los Santos Meteor, reveals that Friedlander actually made public the sessions of Michael in a published bestseller, nicknaming him Marky De Santos and branding him as an idiotic, if terrifying and amusingly deluded sociopath.

If he's spared, the news about his death will still appear. However, after some time, Friedlander will send an e-mail to Michael, confirming that he is alive. In the e-mail, Friedlander says that he is sorry about what he did to Michael, but now he can help a lot of more people with his radio program and his new TV show. He also says that he values the time he spend with Michael and that they both should forget what happened between then, and move forward. Michael has the option of replying the e-mail, if he does, he says that if he mets Friedlander again he will kill him.
