Hello! I am Shelly, better known as SPeed(y) just because I have high energy, AND, my name makes a sentence.... (Shelly Peed). I hope I made you smile.... I've been helping individuals, couples, the LGBTQ community and families since I was first licensed in 1999. My expertise has grown into deeper therapies such as hypnotherapy and polyvagal theory therapy, where I educate my clients on what is happening inside the body and mind so that, together, we can alleviate any pain which prevents living fully in the present.
I am a devout Christian and can come at helping you from a Christian perspective if that's what you desire. I also don't push religion down anyone's throat. My beliefs are my beliefs and I follow the "each to his own" concept.

Dr. Shelly Peed is absolutely outstanding. My time as her client has been remarkable and fulfilling. Our initial meeting went well, discussing the issues at hand, developing a game plan and put forward ways to execute that game plan. With each passing session, we spoke of progressive ways to steadily improve on the self progress already at hand and each conversation had growth in their own way. She’s an expert in her field, very professional, kind and very heartfelt. I’d recommend her to anyone seeking her services. I am forever grateful!

I've always considered myself pretty perceptive about my relationships and interactions. Aside from marital counseling years ago, I had never sought the help of a professional counselor before meeting with Dr. Peed. Her warm, positive, highly skilled approach provided just the "reality check" I needed to identify some negative behavior patterns and find a path out of them. She helped me see my troubling problem as understandable and solvable. I can't thank Dr. Peed enough!

Dr. Peed is an excellent therapist. She is a great listener and empathetic to your circumstances. Not only does she do that she teaches you how to handle it yourself. After an abusive relationship I was in a really bad place and not even sure if I would ever heal. But she taught me healing is possible and I will never have to go through that again. “It doesn’t exist.” I’m very thankful for the rapport she establishes with her clients, it makes you feel more open and cared for. Very thankful for her!!!
