Trauma Therapy

If you’ve experienced a traumatic event that has left a lasting impact on your life, Leta Bell, LPC, serving Oklahoma and North Carolina online, offers trauma therapy to help you move forward.

Benefits of Trauma Therapy

Nearly everyone has experienced some form of trauma in their lives. Though some people move past it seemingly unscathed, others suffer from their experience for years to come. Below, Leta Bell, LPC, discusses how trauma can impact you, how trauma therapy can help, and much more.

Impact of Trauma

Trauma can come in many different forms, including:

    • Bullying
    • Auto accidents
    • House fires
    • Natural disasters
    • Divorce
    • Loss of a loved one or relationship
    • Abuse
    • Violent attacks
    • Injury
    • Imprisonment
    • Sexual assault

Though these are some common traumatic events, it is by no means a comprehensive list.

One thing that all types of trauma have in common is that they can have a lifelong impact on those who experience them. In many cases, they lead to substance abuse, ongoing fears, physical and mental health conditions, destroyed relationships, low self-esteem, guilt, anxiety, and much more.

Benefits of Trauma Therapy

Receiving therapy for trauma can help you overcome all of these lasting effects. Below are just a few of the many benefits you can experience.


Trauma impacts different people in different ways. Unfortunately, this can often lead to people telling you to just get over it, that it’s not as bad as you make it seem, or something similar that makes you feel weak and shameful for feeling the way you do. Therapy offers a safe, nonjudgmental space to explore your feelings and receive validation for them.

Overcome Fears

Trauma creates fear that can have you completely avoiding specific people, places, or events. It can also make you obsessive. For example, if you’ve been in a house fire, you might check that everything is off several times before bed or leaving your home. You might even wake up to check again in the middle of the night. Therapy can help you work through these fears and overcome them.

Learn Coping Skills

Trauma can lead to unhealthy coping mechanisms, such as substance abuse. However, therapy can help you discover and employ skills and habits that will help instead of harming you further.
