About Me

Psychologist San Diego

Eric van der Voort, PsyD

Hi there, I became licensed as a psychologist (PSY27892) in 2015, but have been working with clients since 2009. After licensure, I served as the only psychologist in several of Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital’s IOP programs. These included their Dual Recovery Program, Trauma Program, and Veterans Program. I was then recruited to work at the residential substance abuse treatment program at Sharp McDonald Center. In 2018, I left the comforts of my corporate job to pursue my dream of opening my private practice.

One of my other professional passions has been to supervise and train the next generation of psychologists. I have served as a Clinical Supervisor to master’s and doctoral-level therapists at Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital, Sharp McDonald Center, and a local crisis house.

Outside of the therapy room, I enjoy playing beach volleyball and taking my dog to the dog park. I also explore the beautiful neighborhoods San Diego offers, one restaurant at a time.
