Are these sentences OK? If none of them, could you please help me to make it sound natural?

Whenever I have problems, she is the first person I share them with, and who I often go to for advice about my problems.

Why don't you end the sentences with 'advice'. You really don't have to repeat 'about my problems'.
Thanks RobertJ.

Are those correct?

How about the following?

Whenever I have problems, she is the first person I share them with, and who I often go to for advice about what has happened to me.

"Whenever I have problems, she is [usually] the first person I go to for advice."
"Whenever I have problems, she is the first person I talk to."

I know it's not exactly what you've said, but if you always share your problems with her, one would assume you go to her often for advice (unless you go to her only to whine or get sympathy).

Is the following possible too?
