Trek Verve Handlebar Modification

Hi, newbie to this site. I have a 19" Trek Verve 2 (?) that I bought 3-4 years ago. Time is a blur. I added an electric bike kit from Dillenger AU because I needed a little boost at my age (60's). I'm a tall, 5'10", female with long arms. I've never felt that the bike fit me as comfortably as I would like and today I decided to ask for help to see what I can do. My bike seat is set quite high and as far back as it will go, my feet don't touch the ground when I'm sitting on it. My handlebar style is straight across and they are also as upright as they will go. I lean on them more than I would like to and my wrists go numb shortly into a ride, which suggests to me that I am either too far away from them or they are too low. I'm wondering if a change in handlebar type would help? Perhaps a more swept-back cruiser style?

The bike was fitted for me at the shop but I've had it for a while now and would like to feel more comfortable riding. Any help you all can offer would be greatly appreciated!
