Arianna M. Der Manulian, LLMSW
At times, we feel stuck, powerless, emotionally drained, and hopeless—but those feelings are not forever. I admire your strength and courage to seek support through mental health therapy. I believe all individuals hold the ability to mold themselves into the person they aspire to be, and I am honored you have allowed me to walk through this journey with you.
My approach as a therapist is strengths-based, assisting individuals to see their inherent resilience through self-exploration and empowerment. I also use aspects of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), internal family systems therapy (IFS), solution-focused therapy (SFT), narrative therapy (NT), and motivational interviewing (MI) to assist you in your journey. Through warmth and compassion I aim to create a comfortable, non-judgmental, and supportive environment to attain your unique goals.
I earned my Bachelor of Arts in psychology from Michigan State University and hold a Masters in clinical social work from the University of Michigan. My therapeutic interests include: depression and anxiety, adjustment disorders, bipolar spectrum disorders, trauma and attachment injuries, and sexual dysfunctions/difficulties. I am currently completing the Sexual Health Certificate Program at the University of Michigan to further my capacity in sex therapy and sex education.
I am honored to work with you on your journey toward your optimal well-being. Together, we will work to develop your unique set of tools and coping mechanisms to help you reach your life’s fullest potential.
