Why hire a seasonal affective disorder (SAD) therapist?

Cognitive behavior therapy often helps clients understand and restructure their thought patterns when living with seasonal affective disorder or depression. This leads to the development of much healthier coping methods, rather than relying on medication alone to treat symptoms. Many clients achieve lifelong results through the participation of not only psychotherapy, but medication therapy and light therapy as well. Along with psychotherapy, antidepressants are regularly prescribed in order to help alleviate some of the more severe symptoms of depression and SAD. Furthermore, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) has been shown to be just as effective as antidepressant medication in regards to the treatment of depression.
