In brief: Therapy, meds
Agoraphobia, or fear of crowds (literally of the marketplace) is amenable to treatment with psychotherapy and/or medications, including ssris and others.
Discuss a referral with your pcp; depending on comfort level, they or a mental health provider can discuss medication options in addition to therapy.
