Agoraphobia Therapy

Agoraphobia is an anxiety disorder where you fear being in places and situations you expect will be hard to escape from or deal with. You may get panic attacks, or perhaps previous ones have triggered your fears.

Someone with mild agoraphobia may be able to travel short distances while someone suffering severely may not be able to leave the house at all. Being home-bound, online therapy could the ideal solution.
