Individual Therapy with Dr. Eric van der Voort

San Diego Psychologist

Eric van der Voort, PsyD

Psychologist in San Diego

Asking for help when we're in pain is both difficult and incredibly brave. I believe each of us learns to cope with our pain differently. Some have learned do so through humor, exercise, or work. Others learned to do so with drugs, alcohol, isolation, or sex.

I specialize in helping professionals who struggle with substance use, depression, anxiety, and trauma. I particularly enjoy working with clients as they navigate dating and relationships, and supporting others in reducing their guilt and shame. 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 their 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.
