Candida, depression, and anti-depressants

I am working with a classicial homeopath for six years due to a chronic candida problem. In spite of the fact that I've had some improvements in my condition, I've never, ever been healed of the underlying problem, which is keeping me from working, etc. I'm also still having the severe mood swings, mental fog, etc. that come from the condition. My homeopath, after years of telling me to avoid anti-depressants, just did a 360 and told me to go to a therapist and get meds. I have read in all the candida literature that anti-depressants can further mess up one's brain and hormonal system, so I am very concerned about doing this. She says if I don't, she will refuse to continue treating me.
