First attempt to scientifically systematize face to face counseling methods for patients with psychiatric disorders. Emphasis on unconscious mental processes being the cause of psychiatric problems. Eventually leads to cognitive behavioral therapy, which has helped countless patients around the world without resorting to medication or incarceration.

Yeah, and also literary criticism. Because the real problem with his work scientifically speaking is it's 'not even wrong.' It's stuff that can't be stripped down into empirically testable phenomenon.

In arguing against his ideas, feminist philosophers and phenomenologists developed a lot of new things. But these days Freud is not studied except as an example of pseudo science by philosophers of science.
