Mental Health Care Across California Bay Area and North Carolina Triad and Triangle Area

 WELCOME! Thank you for taking the time to learn a little more about my practice.

I am Dr. Christiane Speed. I am a Clinical Psychologist and the founder of Dr. Speed, Inc. I have had extensive training and over 10 years experience providing psychotherapy, behavioral, mental health and psychological assessment services to clients of all ages and from all walks of life.


I have expertise in treating a wide range of mental health concerns including:

In addition, I am a Certified Diabetes Mental Health Provider and experienced in working with individuals facing chronic health conditions including disability, Chronic Pain, and medical conditions.

I work with individuals and families on stress management, life transitions, creating work-life balance, communication, relationship and conflict resolution skills, building and sustaining healthy friendships, parent-child relationships and positive parenting strategies.

“Fully realize your strengths, learn essential coping skills and life changes to live a healthier life.”

I view therapy to be a collaborative process, which requires the both of us to be actively engaged in listening and providing feedback. My approach to therapy is authentic, empathic, flexible, practical, and warm.  I see my role as a therapist as that of a facilitator in helping you to uncover the deep roots of your distress and making the connections that will lead to growth and healing and allow you to regain a sense of control and empowerment over your life struggles so that you can engage and enjoy life more fully. I am also direct and solutions-focused. My primary goal is to help my clients learn realistic, practical solutions and skills that they can apply to everyday life problems for years to come.

Research shows that an important component of therapy success is the therapeutic alliance in the client-therapist relationship. I invite you to look over my website and read more about who I am and my treatment approaches and contact me for a free 15 minute phone consultation to see if we would be a good match working together.
