GF has a PhD in clinical psychology. I asked her about it, because I had thought I'd read stuff about it in the past. She didn't really get into the details of the why, but said that light therapy has been studied for a long time and proven to be just as effective as taking anti-depressants. She also said that doing lightbox therapy correctly is a pain in the rear, so many people don't do it right, and that's why people tend to think it doesn't work.
My wife has a masters in counselling, so some of the same things have been around the house for years now. I'm certainly game to try.
