San Diego’s Psychologist

Individual Therapy – Dr. Eric van der Voort
Eric van der Voort, Psy.D.
Licensed Psychologist PSY27892
Asking for help for our mental health can be difficult and overwhelming. However, it is also incredibly brave and I am so glad you are making that decision. As a licensed psychologist in San Diego, I am honored to provide individual psychotherapy for adults.
I specialize in helping young professionals who struggle with depression, anxiety, and substance use. Many individuals are also grieving a loss, experiencing relationship difficulties, or coping with trauma. My clients are resilient, inspiring, and talented. They are motivated for change and believe they can benefit from professional help.
Getting started is easy
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 am additionally trained in Prolonged Exposure (PE) therapy.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? "
"Your playing small does not serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you."
"And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
