Diagnosis trumps med: Meaning it is important to know what you are trying to treat. Zoloft (sertraline) like medications (known as SSRI type meds) can be part of helping treat depression, anxiety, and other psychiatric issues. Therapy can be very effective in helping with many of the same issues. There are many different types of meds and non-medication interventions that can help with such issues. Discuss with your provider.
