Online Therapy Makes it Easy to Have Therapy in Indianapolis, IN, and Throughout the State
Our team knows that relationship counseling and sex therapy are not available in many rural areas in Indiana (shocker, right!) When you live in a small Indiana town you may not have access to a therapist who specializes in this kind of therapy. So, you have to travel long distances to work with a sex therapist. But, with online therapy in Indiana, our team of therapists can provide resources throughout the state. As a result, we can support areas that wouldn’t have access to therapy otherwise.

Relationship Counseling and Online Marriage Therapy…
As sex and relationship therapists, we realize there are reoccurring challenges in relationships. These often need to be addressed to move forward in the relationship. It’s normal for couples to fight, but the mark of a healthy partnership is in the ability to resolve conflict. You may find yourself or your partner coping with conflicts and relationship frustration. This may occur by withdrawing, becoming defensive, or being hurtful. If so, it may be time to seek the help of a skilled relationship therapist.
An online therapist in Indiana can guide you in breaking negative relationship cycles. They can work with you to heal your partnership in online relationship therapy. This process provides you with a path for moving forward together.
General Therapy in Indianapolis, IN …
Sometimes, you need someone who can listen to you. Life can bring many different challenges your way. You may not be feeling exactly like yourself these days. Or, the concerns of the environment around you have become too much to take. The loneliness of quarantine may have finally caught up to you. Most people feel depressed, anxious, and stressed at some point in their life. When this happens, it can help to have another person to talk with.
The therapists at Emma Schmidt and Associates are educated and trained as general counselors first and foremost. But, we can guide you through other mental health challenges too. Yet, we still may find that what you are going through is outside of our specialization or competency. If so, we will make sure you get into the hands of the right people. What is critical to us is that you are getting high-quality care even if that means referring out. Please reach out to our therapy office if you are curious. One of our therapists would be happy to help you learn if we are the right fit for you and your needs.
Premarital Counseling in Indiana…
YAY! You’re about to tie the knot! This is such an important time in your journey when you and your partner are filled with hope for the future.
One of the best ways to ensure marital happiness is to get premarital therapy with a counselor trained in relationship therapy. During therapy, you will dive into getting to know your future partner better. This occurs with the help of questions from your counselor. You and your partner will also have the chance to take part in an assessment through Prepare/Enrich. This will allow you to better understand your areas of growth. Plus, it will help you identify where you thrive in your relationship. Then, you will talk about issues that often cause conflict and problems in marriages. This may include issues such as:
- Children and parenting
- Blending families
- Cultures and religions
- Division of marital and household responsibilities and duties
- And more
In the end, premarital counseling sets you up for the best possible success to have a satisfying, long-lasting marriage.
Online Therapy in Indiana for Those With Alternative Lifestyles…
Our sex and relationship therapists are very skilled in helping couples and individuals in all kinds of relationships lead alternative lifestyles. When you’re in an alternative relationship, asking for help may leave you feeling very vulnerable. Our goal is to help you feel comfortable. This means providing you with a non-judgmental and comfortable virtual space. Via online therapy in Indiana, you can talk through your concerns and challenges.
Trauma Counseling and PTSD treatment…
Surviving trauma may leave you feeling paralyzed. Many feel unable to move forward from the terrifying experience(s) that happened to them. The trauma therapists at Emma Schmidt and Associates provide online trauma treatment and PTSD treatment to help individuals, couples, and families heal. Online therapy can allow you to move forward in your journey so that you can go from surviving to thriving.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an innovative and research-based therapeutic approach. It’s used with talk counseling to help clients overcome the roadblocks preventing them from moving forward. By doing so, a therapist can help them find true therapeutic healing. EMDR is often used to treat trauma and PTSD. But, it can also be a treatment for a variety of other mental health concerns. This includes anxiety, depression, sexual and intimacy concerns, performance issues, and more.
EMDR is often administered in a clinical setting. But, we are finding it also helpful when used over an online platform as well.
