Psychologist for San Diego’s Young Professionals

Individual Therapy – Dr. Eric van der Voort

Meet Eric van der Voort, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist PSY27892

If you have been in emotional pain recently, I am glad you are looking for help. As a licensed psychologist in San Diego, I provide individual psychotherapy for adults.

I specialize in helping young professionals who struggle with depression, anxiety, and substance use. Clients who are either grieving a loss, experiencing guilt or shame about sex, or navigating the confusing word of dating in San Diego also find refuge, support, and guidance in their work with me. My clients are resilient, inspiring, and talented. They are motivated for change and believe they can benefit from professional help.

My Approach to Therapy

My approach to therapy is collaborative, empowering, and evidence-based. Treatments like CBT, DBT, ACT, behavioral activation, and motivational interviewing guide my work with clients. I offer a safe and nonjudgmental environment to help unburden people from their unhelpful thoughts, painful feelings, and unhealthy patterns. My clients learn new coping skills, develop healthier ways of thinking, and explore new ways of experiencing the world.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? "

Marianne Williamson – Our Deepest Fear

"Your playing small does not serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you."

Marianne Williamson – Our Deepest Fear

"And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
