In brief: Counseling.
Although sometimes counseling alone is enough to help depressed patients it is often times not enough.
Depression is caused by chemical changes in the brain. This is often corrected by the use of medications for a period of time. You should try counseling and seek an opinion as to whether medication is needed in your particular case.
