Psychologist in San Diego
Asking for help is hard, so I hope to make your process of getting help as easy as possible. My name is Eric van der Voort and I am a sex-positive, LGBTQ+ inclusive, and kink-affirming psychologist in San Diego (CA Lic. # PSY27892). I provide individual therapy to adults with anxiety, depression, relationship problems, sexual issues, substance use, grief, and trauma.
My approach to therapy is collaborative, empowering, and evidence-based. As a provider, I am active, compassionate, genuine, and nonjudgmental. I offer a safe environment to help unburden you from difficult thoughts, painful feelings, and unhelpful patterns. Clients also gain new coping skills, discover more helpful ways of thinking, and explore new ways of living a fulfilling life.
Licensed in 2015, I served as the only psychologist in several of Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital’s outpatient programs. I treated individuals, groups, and families/couples in the Dual Diagnosis program, Trauma program, and Veterans program. Later, I was recruited to work at Sharp McDonald Center, a residential chemical dependency treatment facility. In addition, I have served as a Clinical Supervisor to master’s and doctoral-level therapists at Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital, Sharp McDonald Center, and New Vistas Crisis House.
After pursuing my dream of opening my private practice in 2018, I am grateful for the privilege of doing the work I do with my clients. Outside of the therapy room, I love playing beach volleyball and spending time with my dog, Bear. I also enjoy exploring all the beautiful neighborhoods, beaches, and restaurants that San Diego offers.
