San Diego Psychologist

Eric van der Voort, Psy.D.

Mental Health, Addiction, and Sex

My Approach and Background

Asking for help is hard. As a licensed psychologist in San Diego, I hope to make your process of getting help as painless as possible. I specialize in treating adults struggling with depression, anxiety, sexual concerns, substance use, grief, and PTSD.

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 unhealthy patterns. As a result, you gain new coping skills, discover healthier ways of thinking, and explore new ways of living a fulfilling life.

Licensed in 2015 (PSY27892), I served as the only psychologist in several outpatient programs at Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital. I provided treatment to 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 program. In 2018, after much deliberation I decided to pursue my dream of opening a private practice.

One of my other professional passions has been supervising and training the next generation of mental health providers. 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 enjoy playing beach volleyball and taking my dog Bear to the dog park. I also like exploring the beautiful neighborhoods San Diego has to offer, one restaurant at a time.

FAQ: Do you offer a sliding scale?

Yes, I offer a sliding scale that is based on financial need. A sliding scale allows for flexibility with fees and enables me to provide treatment to those who may not otherwise get the help they deserve. Feel free to ask about any current sliding scale openings during our phone consultation.

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. Many clients choose to pay out-of-pocket for various reasons.
  • If you have insurance coverage under a PPO plan, I can provide you with a superbill that 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.
