Mental health is important. It exists in every part of our lives. From spending time with family to putting in time and effort at work. When you reach that point when you are so stressed or so anxious that you can’t even think, the most important thing is to decrease that stress and anxiety enough to be able to think again – just finding the skills that work for you. Then identify those triggers and address them in ways that are beneficial to you and your goals.
In order to deal with stress and anxiety you will often form coping skills which can range in how well it helps you cope with your stress and anxiety and how beneficial it is to you. The more tools that are at your disposal the more you are able to choose from to fit your unique situations. Sometimes a coping skill can be relied upon too much and a habit can be formed. This process can often happen without a person knowing, and the habit can form into addiction. Habits and addictions can be adjusted with time, attention, and a willingness to change. Recognizing when you need help is often the most important step in figuring out what’s next.
Life can be incredible, amazing, and awesome; it can also be overwhelming, hectic, and challenging. There is no such thing as “the right way” to live your life. There are an infinite number of ways that you can live your life. Sometimes it will be easy, other times it will be difficult. Sometimes life will just happen completely out of your control, and now your choice is where to go from here. However it happens, life and life’s choices can feel like too much to handle on your own.
My name is Trynity Ojeda, and I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Associate and a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist Associate. I have worked with kids, teens, college students, and adults who are dealing with their own mental health struggles and life’s challenges. I have a bachelor’s in psychology and a bachelor’s in communication. I received my Master of Science in Clinical Counseling with an emphasis in addictions from East Carolina University. I have worked with students in a collegiate setting, and I have worked in private practice settings with a variety of individuals. I believe therapy is a journey and a process that helps give people the tools they need to succeed and thrive. I believe every person is unique, so my approach is tailored to meet them where they are. One size does not fit all.
