Agoraphobia Treatment

Start Where You Are

Do you wonder how your life became so small?

  • Are you overwhelmed?

  • Are you grieving the loss of your previous life?

  • Do you struggle with getting daily tasks done out of fear of what might happen to you if you leave your home?

  • Have you struggled with panic for way too long?

Having anxiety so severe you cannot leave your home can be one of the most isolating experiences anyone can go through. The emotional, financial, and often spiritual strain this takes can feel too big to overcome.

Struggling to recover your sense of safety is an experience few understand unless they have experienced it themselves. It is natural to feel overwhelmed. The truth is, you really aren’t alone. Did you know that agoraphobia impacts 1.8 million Americans yearly? Did you know that Agoraphobia is also associated with illnesses such as infections and brain injuries?

Here at A-NU Therapy, we understand. Our in-home clinician, Ruschelle Khanna, LCSW RYT had agoraphobia associated with Lyme Disease.

Ruschelle understands the experience of regaining safety and stepping back into your life again.

Agoraphobia is rooted in severe anxiety ad panic. Our in-home sessions aim to help support all aspects of your recovery including PTSD/trauma treatment, behavioral therapy to navigate immediate stresses, navigating relationships, and problem solving.

Individuals with chronic illness also have a higher likelihood of anxiety and depression than the general population. Our clinicians use evidence-based tools to measure depression and anxiety at the beginning of your treatment. We then follow up with those tools to help track progress. We aim to help you get symptom reduction from anxiety and depression as soon as possible from the time you start treatment.

Many clients with agoraphobia are skeptical about their ability to recover. Agoraphobia treatment can help you regain your ability to use public transportation, participate in social outings, feel comfortable in your surroundings.

Your customized sessions can include a number of different interventions including hypnotherapy, cognitive therapy, expressive arts therapies as well as life skills planning,

So many aspects of agoraphobia can make us feel hopeless. Whether it’s feeling a lack of control, frustration toward ourselves, or anger toward the panic itself, our emotions need an outlet. Your therapy session can be a safe space to express and process intense emotions.

There are some people that find recovery from agoraphobia to be a path to deep internal transformation and spiritual growth. Ruschelle is available to explore issues of spirituality and meaning during your sessions.
