You're right to hope that things will get better. In the long run, een without any treatment, most Depressions lift and one gets better --- but of course one wants to spend as little time as possible in misery, hence the value of therapy. A couple of thoughts. It's often worthwhile, when one's treatment results seem to be stuck in a rut, to get a second opinion, and see a different shrink, for a fresh assessment, which can get a new slant on the issues and probems, and on their management. The other thought is that if you haven't tried CBT, Cognitive therapy is truly useful, with significant and pasting benefits. I now it's not easy to find someone experienced in providing this method, but it's worth looking about. With your intelligence and motivation, and verbal fluency ( and logic !) you ought to be capable of doing very well with it.
