San Diego Psychologist

Eric van der Voort, Psy.D.

Asking for help can be hard enough, and even harder when you're in pain. Emotional pain can present with depression, anxiety, or substance use. It could also be grieving a loss, coping with trauma, or having problems in your relationship. 

Each of us learns to cope with our pain differently. Some have learned do so through humor, isolation, or work. Others learned to do so with drugs and alcohol, exercise, or sex. However you're currently coping with your pain, the good news is that therapy can help.

As a licensed psychologist in San Diego, I specialize in helping adults treat their depression, anxiety, and substance use. I also work with clients as they navigate dating, relationships, and sex, as well as those coping with trauma. My clients are resilient, inspiring, and talented. They are motivated for change and find they can benefit from professional help.

My approach to therapy

My approach to therapy is collaborative, empowering, and evidence-based. I offer a safe and nonjudgmental environment to help unburden you from unhelpful thoughts, painful feelings, and unhealthy patterns. My clients learn new coping skills, develop healthier ways of thinking, and explore new ways of living. Using an effective integration of CBT, DBT, ACT, and Motivational Interviewing allows me to help you to reach you goals. For those living with PTSD, I also provide Prolonged Exposure therapy.
