Therapy in multiple locations

In 2011 we recognized that sex and relationship therapy was virtually non-existent in the tri-state area of Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana. We had a mission of getting quality sex therapy and relationship therapy in the hands of more people. We are the only sex and relationship practice in the tri-state area to offer these services in an expanding regional location.

Therapy at our locations

At Emma Schmidt and Associates we specialize in providing high-quality sex therapy to individuals in all kinds of relationships. This includes monogamous couples, couples in open relationships, swingers, LGBTQIA + relationships, individuals practicing polyamory, or couples who engage in kink or BDSM.

The goal of sex therapy is to help you work through a variety of challenges including but not limited to: 

Sex therapy, Relationship therapy & Marriage counseling…

As sex and relationship therapists, we recognize there are often pervasive relationship issues. For many, these need to be addressed to move forward. It’s normal for couples to argue. But, the mark of a healthy relationship is in the ability to resolve conflict. Do you find yourself or your partner coping with disagreements and relationship frustration by withdrawing or becoming hostile or hurtful? If so, then it may be time to seek the help of a skilled relationship therapist. Our therapists can help you break negative relationship cycles. Together, you can heal your relationship so you can move forward together.

General Therapy…

Sometimes you need to talk through something. Life can get distressing. You may not be feeling like yourself. Or, the worry of the world around you has become overwhelming. The isolation of quarantine may have also gotten to you. Most people experience depression, anxiety, and stress at some point in their life. And sometimes all we need is someone to talk through a situation with us. What’s great is that all the therapists at Emma Schmidt and Associates are trained as general therapists first. Even if you don’t have a sexual or relationship concern we can still help guide you through your struggles.

But, if we feel like what you are experiencing is outside of our expertise or competency we will make sure you get into the hands of the right people. What is important to us is that you’re getting the best care possible even if that means referring out. Feel free to reach out if you are curious if one of our therapists would be the right fit for you and your concerns.

Premarital Therapy…

Congratulations, you’re getting married. This is such an exciting time in your life when you and your partner feel filled with hope for the future. One of the best ways to ensure marital satisfaction is to get premarital counseling. So, find a therapist who specializes in relationship therapy. During premarital counseling, you will dig into getting to know your future spouse better with the help of questions from your therapist. You will also discuss issues that often cause disagreement and problems in marriages. This may include issues such as:

  • Finances
  • Children and parenting
  • Blending families
  • Cultures
  • Religions
  • Division of marital and household responsibilities and duties
  • And more

This will set you up for the best possible success to have a happy and long-lasting marriage. You will also have the chance to take an assessment through Prepare/Enrich. Doing so will allow you to better understand your areas of growth and where you thrive in your relationship.

Therapy for people in alternative lifestyles…

Our sex and relationship therapists are very skilled in helping couples in all kinds of relationships and individuals lead alternative lifestyles. When you’re in an alternative relationship, getting help from a therapist may leave you feeling vulnerable. We aim to help you feel comfortable by providing you with a non-judgmental and comfortable virtual space. Here, you can feel safe discussing your concerns and unique challenges.

Trauma Therapy and PTSD treatment…

Surviving trauma may leave you feeling stuck, unable to move past the terrifying events that occurred. Our therapists offer trauma therapy to help individuals, couples, and families heal and move forward in their lives. By doing so, they can go from surviving to thriving.


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an innovative and research-based therapeutic technique used with talk therapy to help clients overcome the barriers preventing them from moving forward and finding true therapeutic healing. Although it is often used as a trauma and PTSD treatment, it can be used to treat a variety of other mental health concerns including:

EMDR is often done in a clinical setting but we are finding it effective when used over a virtual platform as well.
