No: Sorry, but there are none. Talk w/ a Dr if possible for referral and please consider that talk therapy improves or can even avoid Rx treatment for many cases. Seek a good one for you to trust and to help decide if you need a drug.

Commentary: St Johns Wort, and valerian root are highly touted OTC remedies. But would definitely discuss with your doctor prior to engaging in self treatment, as even OTC items can have potential hazardous side effects.
