Dr. Arellano believes that core beliefs are typically at the heart of one’s struggles in life. These core beliefs develop from impactful life experiences and they take hold and keep one stuck in patterns that are discouraging, frustrating and disheartening. These patterns may manifest in any arena in one’s life such as relationships, work, self—image/esteem or health. And chronic, childhood trauma, known as Complex Trauma, only intensifies the hold that these core beliefs have on an individual.
Dr. Arellano’s primary expertise is in the arena of couple relationships. She helps couples create healthy and fulfilling relationships by not only addressing challenges with communication, expectations, trust and getting needs met, but by also helping life partners shift core beliefs that are often at the heart of these challenges in their relationships. Dr. Arellano’s second area of expertise focuses on helping clients heal from Complex Trauma by helping them break free from the grips of stubborn core beliefs that developed from traumatic events and by helping clients reconnect with their inner power so they are able to create fulfilling lives.
Intimate relationships are potentially the most powerful vehicle for healing and individual growth. Yet, many couples find themselves feeling too frustrated, resentful, hurt, disappointed, untrusting or just plain bored to experience the powerful benefits of being intimately connected to another human being. For over 25 years, Dr. Arellano has worked with couples as they explore how their individual backgrounds, past conditioning, beliefs, thoughts, and behaviors impact, often unconsciously, their relationships in both positive and negative ways. Dr. Arellano helps couples to identify specific areas or patterns of their relationships that no longer serve or benefit them and to shift their relationships so they evolve into the powerfully loving instrument of healing and self-growth for which they are intended. As with individual psychotherapy, Dr. Arellano provides couples therapy to couples who have problems in their relationship that interfere with the health and vitality of their relationship. Some insurance companies provide medical benefits for couples counseling when there is an identified emotional issue such as anxiety or depression. If there is not an identifiable emotional issue and a couple is seeking support and guidance to strengthen an already functional relationship, Dr. Arellano provides couples coaching.
