what type of therapist for going through depression?

by Brittany

I am currently on a waiting list to see some form of therapist. (I have been diagnosed with depression for a very long time, I am only 21 years old.) Also, I have experienced recently some terrible trauma in my life. My doctor was not specific as to what type of therapist I was going to see. I have read that there are certain forms of therapy that are non-effective towards depression, and I am worried that my family doctor will not best suit me to the right one. Any answers as to which type I should see? And what they consist of? Thank You, Brittany
