Psychologist and Sex Therapist in San Diego

Asking for help is hard, so I make your process of getting quality care as easy as possible. My name is Dr. Eric van der Voort and I am a sex-positive, LGBTQ+ inclusive, and kink-affirming psychologist and sex therapist in San Diego. I provide individual psychotherapy and sex therapy services by secure video Telehealth to adults with anxiety, depression, sexual concerns, relationship issues, substance use, and grief.

Approach + Background

Approach to Therapy

My approach to therapy is collaborative, empowering, and evidence-based. Combined with a belief in the use of appropriate humor and levity, I am an active, genuine, and nonjudgmental provider. I offer a safe environment to help unburden you from difficult thoughts, painful feelings, and unhelpful patterns. I ask the questions you may not be asking yourself, so you can start thinking of yourself in a different kind of way. Patients also develop new coping skills, discover more helpful ways of thinking, and explore new ways of living a fulfilling life, both in and out of the bedroom.

Since pursuing my dream of opening my private practice in 2018, I remain grateful for the privilege of helping my patients do their most meaningful work. Under the mentorship of world-renowned sex therapist and author, Marty Klein, Ph.D., I share my passion and expertise in the field of Sex Therapy with my patients.

My Background

After earning my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the APA-Accredited American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University – Orange County in 2014, I completed my post-doctoral fellowship in the Cognitive and DBT-Informed Skills intensive outpatient programs at Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital.

Upon licensure as a psychologist in 2015, I served as the only psychologist in several of Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital’s other outpatient programs. I treated individuals, groups, families, and 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.

Outside of the therapy room, I love playing beach volleyball, sharing laughs with friends and family, and spending time with my dog, Bear. I also enjoy exploring all the beautiful neighborhoods, beaches, and restaurants that San Diego offers.

FAQ: How do I get reimbursed from my PPO insurance?

At your request, I can provide you with a superbill that you submit to your insurance. Depending on your Out-Of-Network benefits and in accordance with your plan’s policy, your insurance will then reimburse you directly. Patients are responsible for verifying their Out-Of-Network benefits with their insurance carrier prior to treatment.
