Wait, so why is there no "normal, unremarkable psychologist" category? You know, the type who do their job, and do it well, but don't necessarily qualify for "awesome" status?
Because then it's not really a trope, it's just the job that a character happens to have.
For a page quote, I would like to suggest Dr. Sidney Freedman's line from M*A*S*H: Ladies and gentlemen, take my advice - pull down your pants and slide on the ice.

Diana: "I don't feel like myself. I mean, I don't feel anything."
Doctor Fine: *to dictaphone* "Patient stable."
