What’s a relationship checkup?

The Olson Clinic is offering you and partners, spouses, friends, roommates, siblings - anybody in a relationship that’s important to you - up to 3 free 45-minute sessions designed to help you see where your relationship is, what’s working well, and what needs a tune-up. We offer in-person and telehealth sessions.

Who is this for?

Anyone in Iowa (over telehealth) or within driving distance of Cedar Rapids for in-person sessions. While many people want to focus on romantic relationships, relationships with friends, coworkers, siblings, and others can be incredibly important and deserve our time and attention. We are an LGBTQ+ friendly clinic and welcome all kinds of relationships.

Why should I do it?

We’ve all been through a lot in the last few years and it can take a toll on our relationships. Even when things are going well, many of us can use some help fine-tuning what’s working (and what’s not) to better support each other and get and give what we need. Research supports what many of us already know: our relationships affect our overall well-being and how well we cope with stress (Rivers and Sanford, 2018).

What if I want to go deeper?

If you want to continue after three sessions, our student therapists will be happy to work with you. The Olson Clinic uses a sliding fee scale; sessions are typically $10-$30. Talk with your student clinician or call the front desk to learn more. 

Who will I work with?

One or two master’s level student Marriage and Family Therapists will facilitate your relationship checkup. All student clinicians at the Olson Clinic are supervised by a doctoral level, fully licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. 

How do I schedule a session?

Call our friendly front desk staff at (319) 368-6493 or visit and let them know you want a relationship checkup to get started. They’ll get the information they need and schedule you with a student therapist or therapist team.
