Clinician Bio

About Eric Bolella

Hi, I’m Eric. I’m a licensed psychotherapist. I graduated from Central Connecticut State University in 2013 with my Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I’ve worked in outpatient settings with inner city youth and low income families in New Britain, CT. I’ve been a clinician for a therapeutic adolescent boy’s group home. I’ve managed a therapeutic adolescent girl’s group home. Most recently, I managed a non-profit, state funded clinical domestic violence program focused on helping to reform abusive behaviors and heal family bonds in an effort to keep families together and prevent state intervention. I’m currently practicing privately utilizing telehealth services. I’m a very systemic thinker and practitioner. I’m very trauma focused. My therapeutic approach is grounded in solution focused strategies mixed with a socratic conversational style with deep influences from Dick Schwartz’s (IFS) Internal Family Systems, Gabor Mate’s Compassionate Inquiry, as well as narrative methods. Clinical Strengths: -General life stress -Grief and loss -Depression and anxiety – Issues surrounding trauma – Intimate relationship issues – life stress and life cycle transitions

A little more about me – I’m a big Yankees fan and have been most of my life. I’m married and love to travel with my wife who’s also a therapist :). I try to look at the world with compassion for everyone – and with the perspective that we’re all doing the best that we can on this crazy planet…
