Dr. A.P. Carmichael, PhD

Relationships are part of what makes us human.  We thrive when connected with others.  I am passionate about helping people create and maintain healthy and loving relationships.  I work with couples, families, and individuals and have strong experience working with LGBTQ clients.  I make it a priority to create a safe space for all of my clients.  It is through this atmosphere of acceptance that we can work together to create true change and growth.

I work with clients who are going through a crisis as well as those who are simply looking to strengthen their relationships.  I have extensive experience working with gay couples, polyamory systems, transgender adult as well as transgender youths and their families.  However you identify, I am here to support you and help you create and maintain healthy and fulfilling relationships.

I’m am Gottman trained and experienced applying these skills to couples who are going through a relationship crisis (infidelity, sexless marriage etc). I have been trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples. I have a doctorate in Human Sexuality Research and a master’s degree in Human Sexuality Education from Widener University in Philadelphia. I hold a second master’s degree in Marital and Family Therapy from Saint Louis University.

I offer traditional in-person and telehealth appointments. My offices are located in the Central West End neighborhood of Saint Louis, very close to Barnes Jewish Hospital. I have a second in Olivette. My offices have parking available. 


Individuals get therapy for myriad reasons. Some have experienced trauma, grief or heartache. Some people just want to stop feeling stuck. 


I do sessions with  partners who are married, living together, considering future commitments, or just dating. I work with people who are considering separation or are already separated but wish to resolve their issues to be better co-parents or friends. 


I have experience working with families going through crisis as well as families who are just feeling stuck. I have extensive experience with sexual minorities and gender creative youths and their families.
