Emma Schmidt & Associates is the only sex therapy group practice in Cincinnati. Our mission is to promote healthy sexuality and great intimate relationships. We believe you deserve to have a great sex life and relationships that fire on all cylinders. That’s why we are devoted to being the best in the sex & relationship therapy field.
Emma started the practice in 2011 because she found that the sex therapy field was significantly under-served in the Cincinnati area. Sex plays a big part in our lives and when it isn’t going well can have a huge effect on our intimate relationship. We know that 30-40% of men and women struggle with some sort of sexual disorder or sexual dysfunction. We also know that when sex isn't working well it can affect up to 80% of our relationship in a negative way. That’s huge! What we see is that through guided conversation and exercises clients are able to not only have a greater bond and connection but tell us that after therapy with us, they are happier than they have ever been in their relationship. That’s pretty impactful. And that’s why we do what we do.
Please feel free to contact us to see if an in-person therapy session in Cincinnati or an on-line coaching session is your right next step.

Areas of focus consist of but are not limited to:
Therapy can be a difficult step to take for many people. Sex and relationship therapy, takes it to a whole new level. Although Emma Schmidt and Assoc. are very comfortable talking to their clients about any sexual problems they have, she and her team understand that it can feel abnormal to talk to others about the depths of one's sex life. Talking about sex is a very personal, vulnerable area to go to. Emma Schmidt and Assoc.’s goal is to create a space that feels welcoming for you to explore and work on the areas that you are concerned with.
Though Emma and her team focus on sexual difficulties, they understand that sometimes, the relationship outside of the sexual pieces needs some work. If you are looking to just work on your relationship, that’s okay as well.
Sex therapy can involve a number of different concerns. Emma Schmidt + Assoc. work with women, men and LGBTQ populations. If you are not sure if Emma and her team fit what you're are looking for, feel free to send a message or call and they will be glad to answer your questions and/or guide you to someone who best fits your situation.
