The Help You Deserve with Dr. Eric van der Voort

San Diego Psychologist

I'm glad you're here.

Get the help you deserve.

Asking for help when you're in pain is difficult and incredibly brave. Whether your pain is related to anxiety, depression, or substance use, therapy can help. Therapy can also help if you are grieving a loss, coping with trauma, or having problems in your relationships.

Each of us learns to cope with our pain differently. Some have learned do so through humor, isolation, or work. Others learned to do so with drugs and alcohol, exercise, or sex. However you're currently coping with your pain, I want to help.

My name is Eric van der Voort, PsyD, and I am a licensed psychologist in San Diego. I specialize in helping adults treat their depression, anxiety, substance use, and trauma. I also work with clients as they navigate dating, relationships, and sex. My clients are resilient, inspiring, and talented. They are motivated for change and find they can benefit from professional help.

My approach to therapy

I offer a safe and nonjudgmental environment to help unburden people from unhelpful thoughts, painful feelings, and unhealthy patterns. My clients learn new coping skills, develop healthier ways of thinking, and explore new ways of living. My approach to therapy is collaborative, empowering, and evidence-based. Clients can expect an effective integration of CBT, DBT, ACT, and motivational interviewing in our work together. For individuals whose primary concern is treating PTSD, I provide Prolonged Exposure therapy.
