I believe I can address your specific concerns.
I see no evidence at all that you have seasonal affective disorder
This can depression, other mood disorder, hormonal problem, neurotrasmitter problem, and one can not at this point say that CBT is the solution without the correct physical assessment.
Yes there are doctors that do not push drugs, but who are MDs and who measure exactly what is wrong with you, and in most cases can treat the problem.
See this site
Go to the find a practitioner link and look for MDs and DOs.
This is an evidence based system of treatment, and they will also consider things such as CBT, but will look at specific and measurable imbalances, brain function, nutrient deficiencies, and what they do will be based on the best evidence to date, not guess work.
