A fun write up. Just a note to the author, most psychotherapists don't call their clients 'patients' anymore. It's an antiquated term that can create an additional level of paternal separation between client and clinician; which most of the time is counter productive to a therapeutic alliance.

If you want to go for an additional level of authenticity, I would recommend using the term 'client' for characters engaging in mental health treatment, counseling, or psychological evaluation.
