In brief: Don't give up

Communicating with your mental health provider is important.
The communication also helps the impasse in the treatment process. Don't give up and either discuss the treatment issues with the psychologist or seek another provider. However, a reason for the impasse should be explored during the treatment. Also, if you're on meds, take them as prescribed.

In brief: CBT and Depression

I am not sure who you saw, however, depression is a problem that can be helped.
There are a number of research supported treatments including cognitive behavior therapy, interpersonal therapy, and others that have shown efficacy. Make sure your psychologist is familiar with such modalities and you will probably have better results.
