Fictional accounts of therapy

I am looking for fictional depictions of therapy, preferably ones where it's taken seriously. More along the lines of In Treatment and The Sopranos than What About Bob? and Analyze This!

I'm always interested in how modern television, film and books portray talk therapy to their audience. I'm less interested in fiction where the therapy is a punchline and also not keen on straight up psychiatric facilities with doctors and drugs and straight jackets (so, not Girl, Interrupted or the first season of American Horror Story. I'm mainly looking for serious depictions of talk therapy, like Dr. Melfi and Tony Soprano.
I'm aware of:
every single Woody Allen movie
The Silent Wife by A.S.A. Harrison
Jimmy P: The Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian
early seasons of Mad Men
