Psychiatry and Counseling
At the CSU Health Network, we have a strong commitment to helping students understand their difficulties and concerns, and we offer a range of options to help.
Our psychiatrists and psychiatric nurse practitioners work with students to determine a course of treatment that often includes medications (pharmacotherapy). Medications can be helpful for depression, anxiety and other issues that have a biological component.
Our Combined Treatment Model—Psychiatry and Counseling
Medication alone may not be the optimal treatment. Research has repeatedly shown that combining psychiatric medications with counseling produces better clinical outcomes for most conditions. Some of the benefits of working with both a counselor and a psychiatrist include:
- Enhanced emotional and psychological support.
- Enhanced awareness of how cognitive, emotional, lifestyle, and interpersonal factors affect symptoms targeted by the medications.
- Enhanced development and strengthening of skills that support feeling better.
- Enhanced symptom reduction.
- Enhanced stability (living with reduced symptoms and the ability to manage life stresses).
- Enhanced support during medication changes or the decision to discontinue medications.
The CSU Health Network has a model of combined treatment in which students seen by our psychiatry staff are also strongly encouraged to be in counseling. If treatment for substance abuse or other issues is recommended, students are expected to engage in that as well. The CSU Health Network provides a range of individual, group and specialty (drug and alcohol services) counseling services.
The goal of our combined treatment model is to ensure that students have counseling support while they are taking psychiatric medications. The counselor and psychiatric clinician will jointly determine the recommended frequency of counseling and other treatment visits and make adjustments as needed over time.

Helpful Terminology and Definitions
Self-generated definitions by Karissa Stolen and Ben Lee (Student Representative of CSU Trans* Health Team)
Due to socialization, there are a lot of misconceptions and misuse of terminology specific to the trans* community. To clear up confusion and ensure that our language is inclusive and appropriate, we think it is important to define terms as an educational tool for social justice awareness.
Sex: the medical assignment of ʻmaleʼ or ʻfemaleʼ based upon the external genitalia that an individual possesses at birth. Biological sex is often confused with gender, gender identity, and gender expression. A personʼs assigned birth sex does not dictate their gender expression, chromosomal, and hormonal make-up. Those born with “male” genitalia may or may not behave in a masculine way and those born with “female” genitalia may or may not behave in a feminine way.
Gender: the social construction of masculinity or femininity as it aligns with designated sex at birth or in a specific culture and time period. Gender Identity claims individuality that may or may not be expressed outwardly, and may or may not correspond to one’s birth sex. Also defined as one’s psychological and sociological aspects.
Gender Identity: a person’s own understanding of themselves in terms of gendered categories like man and woman, boy and girl, transgender, gender-queer, and many others. How they feel inside or what they believe themselves to be.
Gender Role: the social role someone takes in society in relation to their gender.
Gender Expression: people’s behaviors that convey something about their gender identity, or that others interpret as meaning something about their gender identity. How we walk, talk, dress, and the language we use for ourselves (e.g. names and pronouns) are all aspects of gender expression. Socially we quantify gender expression with terms like masculine, feminine, androgynous, butch, femme etc.
Sexual Orientation: who someone is attracted to; can be declared relative to one’s gender (not sex), can be declared simply as the partner’s gender, or can be completely unrelated to gender all of these attributes are independent of each other (there are straight transwomen, lesbian transwomen, straight transmen, gay transmen, and everything in-between).
Trans* Umbrella: a term used to refer to the range and diversity of gender variance. Often included:
- Transgender: an “umbrella term” for someone whose self-identification, anatomy, appearance, manner, expression, behavior and/or otherʼs perceptions of challenges traditional societal expectations of congruent gender expression and designated birth sex.
- FTM: a person who transitions from “female-to-male,” meaning a person who was assigned female at birth, but identifies and lives as a male. Also known as a “transgender man.”
- MTF: a person who transitions from “male-to-female,” meaning a person who was assigned male at birth, but identifies and lives as a female. Also known as a “transgender woman.”
- Transsexual: a person whose gender identity is different from their assigned sex at birth and seeks to transition from male to female or female to male. Many do not prefer this term because it is thought to sound overly clinical, Transgender is preferred by many.
- Two Spirit: many North American Indigenous populations have three, five or even seven genders. These dual-gendered people, or “two-spirited” are seen without stigma and considered emissaries from the creator. They are treated with the deference and respect, even considered sacred. “Two-Spirit” is the closest thing to an appropriate umbrella term of referring to these gender traditions among Native peoples. However, even “two-spirit” is contested in modern usage and is not prevalent in all Indigenous cultures.
- Gender-queer/Gender-variant: captures a variety of identities and the identity has permeable boundaries; characterized by the desire or tendency to challenge gender roles and presentation, to “play” with gender, and to make the categories of gender irrelevant. It may be but is not always a political identity; changing society’s attitudes toward gender is often the goal. This is an identity that must be claimed as one’s own; it should not be imposed upon people.
- Androgynous: a person with physical traits that can be considered both masculine and feminine.
- Bigender: having two genders, exhibiting cultural characteristics of male and female roles.
- Cross-dressing: a person who enjoys dressing in clothes typically associated with another gender. This may be the extent of the gender-bending behavior, or it may be one step on a path of changing sex or gender.
- Drag Performers: people who dress and theatrically perform like the “opposite” gender for entertainment, play, expression, or eroticism. Typically men presenting as women are referred to as Drag Queens and women presenting as men are referred to as Drag Kings. Some identify as trans and others do not.
Not under the Trans Umbrella:
- Cisgender: describes one whose gender identity matches their sex at birth, and who also fits into the gender binary
- Intersex: sometimes included under the transgender umbrella, but more often not; describes any physical condition that is not distinctly “male” or distinctly “female”; can be unusual chromosome patterns (single X, XXY, XYY, XXX, and other patterns are possible), hormone imbalances, ambiguous genitalia, etc. (there are many intersex conditions, and at least one occurs in every 1 in 100 births; 1% of the population or ~70 million).
- Passing Privilege: refers to a trans* individual who easily functions within the gender binary as a perceived member of their preferred gender group. Example: If a transman is perceived by others to be a cisgender man, they may say that they experiencing “passing” as a cisgender man. One way this individual can choose to embody their identity is to live “stealth” as a perceived cisgender man, which can afford some privileges associated with dominant identities back to the trans* individual (that of a cisgender man). This same person could also identify as a transman and wish to be open about this identity in some, or all, spaces.
- Benefit of Passing: affords all of us physical safety in public spaces, and for those of us living full-time, job security and access to the social, educational, economic and professional pathways of cisgender people.
- Losing Passing Privilege: one can lose passing privilege by forfeiture (conscious choice), by an overt act (such as a public display of affection for one’s same-sex partner), or by being outed.
Transphobia: the fear, intolerance, or hatred of atypical gender expression or identity, or of people embodying or expressing an atypical gender identity.
