Check out our story

Emma started the practice in 2011 because she found that the sex therapy field was significantly under-served in the Cincinnati area. Sex and intimacy play a big part in our lives and when it isn’t going well can have a huge impact on ourselves and relationships. We know that 30-40% of men and women struggle with some sort of sexual challenge. Additionally, we 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.

Our Team

Our Approach

Making Sex and Relationship Therapy More Accessible…

Locally

We offer therapy services locally, in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.

As a part of our mission to make sex therapy more accessible we created an in-house AASECT CE approved therapy training program to teach therapists to become sex therapists. We know the more therapists we can help get trained as sex therapists, the more people we will be able to help in the community.

Nationally

We provide free services to our national community. To help people who aren’t able to work with us via therapy, we provide free courses, groups, speaking engagements, community involvement, social media, podcasts, news articles, blogs and online videos. Sign up for our newsletter below so that you stay up to date and have the opportunity to catch us at our next event!

Following us on social is also a great way to stay updated.

Globally

We want sexual health care to be accessible at a global level. To make progress against this goal, we have partnered with an organization in Nepal called Mukti. Mukti is a healing aftercare home for girls 17 and younger who have been rescued from sex trafficking. Because the staff at Mukti aren’t given adequate training as therapists or in sex education, we help support their care team to feel more equipped to work with these girls who have been rescued. In our partnership with Mukti we provide free sex education courses through our in-house training program, supervision, group therapy and trainings to their care team.

If you’d like join us on this mission, you can go here.

REVIEWS FROM PROFESSIONALS IN OUR COMMUNITY

Our partnership is what helps us achieve amazing results for our patients together.

As a sexual health physician; I recognize the need for a multidisciplinary approach for patients. Oftentimes, surgery, medications and hormones are just the beginning of their journey. When they have struggled with low desire, sexual pain, orgasm dysfunction or problems with arousal, they feel “broken”, isolated, guilty or unworthy of love. This is the part of the equation that I rely heavily on Emma and her team for.

Their knowledge and experience, in particular in the sexual health space, is unmatched. The team at Emma Schmidt & Associates has been an amazing resource and partner for our practice and for our patients. They work through the emotional journey my patients are going through and give them the support, counseling and help they need in addition to the treatments they receive from us. Through this team approach, we are able to treat both the mind and the body – something that is essential for many of our patients who suffer from sexual dysfunction.

Patients Get The Support They Need

There is something to be said for availability of high quality, compassionate sex therapy in one’s area, and Cincinnati is incredibly fortunate to have Emma Schmidt & Associates.

Expertise That Are Rare To Find

I have many patients who have worked with Emma’s team and found just the support they’ve needed for their journey. Emma herself makes treatment for what are often isolating problems more approachable and understandable.
