In brief: Integrative therapy

Alternative treatments for depression include acupuncture, hypnotherapy, biofeedback, meditation, coaching, and herbal supplementation.
St. John's wort has been shown to improve mild depression. Of course, it is best to see a trained holistic professional before starting this or any alternative or traditional therapy.
