Welcome

Promoting healthy sexuality and great intimate relationships…

Emma Schmidt & Associates is the only sex therapy group practice in Cincinnati. Our mission is to promote healthy sexuality and great intimate relationships. As sex therapists, 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. Additionally, 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 is your right next step.
