How do you get a child who is living independently to get the help she needs?

How do you get a child who is living independently to get the help she needs? -Assurance and honesty are your best weapons. And a little bit of pushing.

Q: My 22-year-old daughter is graduating from college, but has shown signs of mild depression for several years. I convinced her to visit her school's counseling center, where she was told she should continue seeing a therapist, but she felt the experience was too traumatic to continue. She is an intensely private person who has never been able to talk about her feelings. I have managed to "enable" her to at least keep up a fairly normal life by talking to her for hours on the phone and talking her through her occasional panic/anxiety attacks. I just don't know if there is anything else I can do, and I am afraid that entering into adult life will put her over the edge. How do you get your child who is living independently to get the help she needs?
