I agree with Johann -- it's both. There is a genetic vulnerability, which can be triggered by life events and habits of thought. Or as someone much better with words than I am put it: "genes load the gun, environment pulls the trigger."

It doesn't sound to me as though you and your T have a lot of trust built up? What do you think? Is this a good fit for you? Do you get something out of this therapy? Sometimes a therapist can be good, and good for us for a time, but then we need to move on to someone who'll take us to a slightly different place on our journey.

I agree with Johann, too, about psychodynamic...

Good luck.
