Dr. Beachkofsky understands the importance of a balanced approach to mental health care which takes into account a person’s unique situation in life as well as any other medical issues or complicated history that they bring with them. She is particularly passionate about serving people going through life transitions whether graduating from college, moving across the country, or becoming a parent.
Dr. Beachkofsky’s focus is on Positive Psychiatry but she is also trained in cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, supportive and insight oriented therapy, and psychodynamic psychotherapy. It is her goal to help people to make treatment decisions that align with their values with her education and guidance, whether medications or therapy or both. She is most effective with patients that are motivated to take an active, engaged stance in their mental wellness with a goal to graduate for care when ready.
Dr. Beachkofsky is optimistic, engaging, and outcome-oriented. Her practice philosophy is driven by knowledge and insight and she knows that growth and change take hard work and dedication. She loves working with patients to help them become the best versions of themselves and to optimize their mental wellness.

Dr. B's Message to Future Patients
Hi, Dr. B here. I specialize in optimizing life skills for clients facing transition, as well as treating specific diagnoses such as major depressive disorder or generalized anxiety disorder. We can approach your problems as a team and I’m optimistic and enthusiastic about engaging in your mental wellness.
Many people I see struggle with uncontrollable anxiety about upcoming events. This could be a big exam, an important job interview, or a visit with the in-laws. Although anxiety is one of the tactics our brains use to stay safe, in these situations the anxiety is ill-placed and can negatively affect daily function and quality of life.
There are different medication options that we can discuss such as a pill that you can take just when you need it, like right before a big presentation. There are also medications that you can take on a daily basis, long-term, to gradually bring down your overall response to anxiety triggers. Alongside medications we can work on tips and strategies to minimize your anxiety about these upcoming stressors. Together, all of these things will help to calm the brain and decrease stress hormones.
Working with me involves addressing and improving current behaviors and habits so you can live the successful life you envision for yourself. For those who want to get the most of out their treatment with me, putting in the work is going to bring you the biggest return. But no matter what course of treatment you decide to take, we will work together to develop strategies and solutions to become the healthiest version of yourself.
If you are a Florida resident, please reach out to me today to see if we would be a good fit working together. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
