About Us

Why choose Cedar Rapids Relationship Center?

Cedar Rapids Relationship Center was created from the minds of Marriage and Family Therapists.  In today’s world, people have many options when they decide to go to a therapist or counselor and make changes in their life.  Different mental health professions take different approaches when helping to achieve that change.  As MFTs, we believe an important piece that is often over looked is the impact that our relationships have on us.  Whether it is our depression, anxiety or self esteem, changing how we connect to people around us, makes a difference.

The Cedar Rapids Relationship Center is a new therapy office of independent therapists who have a special interest in relationships.  While our therapists work with the majority of mental health diagnoses and life stressors, we specialize in working with all relationships and couples, traditional and non- traditional.  As Marriage and Family Therapists, Rhonda and Jennifer use a systemic framework as well as an experiential approach, to help their clients improve their relationships and make lasting changes in their lives.

Because of her passion for working with couples, Jennifer is certified in Level 1 and 2 of the Gottman Method Couples Therapy and has attended multiple trainings in Emotionally Focused Therapy.  She worked with couples in all stages of their relationships including premarital counseling and discernment counseling.

Rhonda has combined her interest in working with couples and adults with addressing relationship and sexual concerns.  With this in mind, she as participated in a number of trainings focused around couple’s therapy and sex therapy and is currently working under the supervision of a Certified Sex Therapy Supervisor through AASECT.

Remember a time when you weren’t getting along with a close friend or maybe a romantic partner.  Most likely this conflict had an impact on how you were feeling.  Think how often we let these conflicts and stresses go for years, maybe even decades. It can get to a point where it feels overwhelming.  This is where we can be helpful.  We can help you break things down into smaller, more manageable pieces.  We can assist you in navigating conflict and work on reestablishing connections.
