Approach + Background

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.

Therapeutic Approach

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.

My Background

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.

FAQ: What insurance do you accept?

  • For the most up-to-date list of accepted insurances, please call the office at (619) 786-8685.
  • Insurance is not required for treatment. Most of my clients choose to pay out-of-pocket for various reasons.
  • If you have a PPO plan, I can provide you with a superbill, which may help with reimbursement from your insurance company, to offset treatment costs.

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. Your insurance will then reimburse you directly, according to your policy. If you will be relying on reimbursement, I encourage you to call your insurance company to verify your out-of-network benefits prior to your appointment.
