Eric Bolella


About Me


My name is Eric and I'm a licensed marriage and family therapist in the state of Connecticut. I graduated from graduate school from Central Connecticut State University in 2013. I've been practicing in the field for about 7 years. I've worked in outpatient clinics with kids and adults, psychiatric group homes for both teenage boys and teenage girls, and I currently manage a clinical Intimate Partner Violence Program.

I'm a very relational therapist. I believe that building strong rapport with my clients is most important. Therapy interventions aren't effective unless the therapist and client have a trusting and respectful relationship. I believe in unconditional empathy and taking a non-judgemental, strength based approach in my work with clients.

Eric has been extremely helpful and flexible! He is willing to give me room to choose my direction in therapy if I want but is also willing to step in and give me recommendations and resources when I need that kind of support.
