In brief: Free Writing
Free writing is just writing whatever comes to mind, without thinking about it.
It might provide you with a clue as to what is causing the internalized stress that you are experiencing as depression. On the other hand, talking to a good therapist can do the same and you have someone else to remember and interpret what you are avoiding.

In brief: Great idea
Writing a journal can be a great idea.
It can be a cathartic experience, to put your emotions and thoughts on paper.
