“First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage.”
Everyone that read that line knew exactly how it was supposed to end. Unfortunately this “ideal” is often not reality. Many grow up with this dream for their future. Find a partner who you choose to spend the rest of your life with, marry and eventually have children. In couples struggling with infertility, this dream can seem more like a reminder of how others have it so much easier than they do. Dreams have a way of motivating us at times but also give us a sense of being stuck when we struggle to bring them into reality.
I just wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself and announce my addition to the CRRC team. My name is Rhonda Estling and I am also a Marriage and Family Therapist. CRRC was a shared dream between Jennifer Gage and myself feeling passionately about starting a practice with a focus on relationships.
In addition to working with adults and relationships I have a passion about helping to build healthy sexual relationships with oneself and others. Under the supervision of an approved AASECT supervisor, I am working toward my own AASECT certification and have attended numerous trainings to this end. For more information about AASECT you can visit AASECT.org.
I am excited for the opportunity to work with one of my best friends and doing the kind of work I am truly passionate about. If you have any questions about the services I provide or my fees please feel free to give me a call at 319-804-9278 or email me at Rhonda@crrelationshipcenter.com.
