Dr. Taji Huang, Ph.D. specializes in Agoraphobia therapy in Glendale, California. She wants to be there help you overcome this highly limiting form of anxiety. Agoraphobia is a debilitating condition where sufferers become anxious and fearful of unfamiliar environments from which one feels unable to escape or find help.
Don’t Live In Fear
Imagine living in the world without feeling the overwhelming panic associated with crowds, standing in lines, riding public transportation, and other mundane daily acts that can make you feel trapped. Imagine how many new and exciting experiences would be available to you if agoraphobia were no longer the issue it is today.
To treat Agoraphobia, one has to understand its underlying mechanisms. At its root is a general sense of fear and lack of safety. Many people who have agoraphobia develop it after having one or more panic attacks, causing them to fear places or situations that could lead to further panic attacks.
Many suffering from this anxiety disorder often feel the need for a companion to escort them in public places. Many others who may not have someone to help will often find themselves leaving their home less often as they watch their lives shrink away before their eyes.
You may be experiencing Agoraphobia if you have several of the following symptoms:
- Losing control in a public place
- Fear of embarrassment
- Losing sanity
- Being in crowded places, small spaces, and open spaces
- Fear of being unable to escape if a crisis arises
- Loss of control
- Shortness of breath
- Racing heart
- Chest pain
Finding Freedom From Anxiety
To treat Agoraphobia, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) has been found to be the most effective method. As noted, fear is the basic response which locks people into the cycle of panic and avoidance. Addressing and eliminating both fear and fear responses is the key to finding freedom.
