Hi everyone, I just joined this forum. I'm currently seeking help for agoraphobia and some other mental health issues. I used better help for about 2 years during the pandemic but I felt like it did not help me overcome my agoraphobia very much.

Hello, ltybursk -  I would start with an inventory of what is causing your agoraphobia and possible outcomes and their likelhood.

From there, I would practice "expanding your territory" a little at a time, and then assessing you did - positive and negative outcomes.

I'm very challenged by public speaking, which is required at most jobs that I'm interested in. 

In the past I ran from any opportunities to do public speaking or be put on the spot. 

Which contributed to my isolation.

You will have to press out in that area to overcome it then.

I had to find a new therapist and mental health team because my therapist moved to Delaware, and she seemed to reach her limit in terms of being able to help me. 

Have you found spirituality to be helpful? Toastmasters? Just want to get better.

Spirituality helps.

Part of the process of overcoming anxiety is separating when you can change and what you cannot.  If you can't change it, give it to God.  He'll know what to do.
