Ready to get back to the YOU you’ve been missing?


Whether it’s those tough grad school classes, a high pressure career (or career change), or the challenges of parenthood, we can work through this to find the solutions that lead you to the best version of you!


What Previous Patients Have Said...

Dr. B listens carefully and takes into account all factors when reaching a diagnosis. She deeply explains and collaborates with me in defining a treatment plan. She's not the kind of psychiatrist who spends five minutes with you and sends you on your way with pills. I would recommend Dr. B to anyone that wants to get to the root of their challenges and make some real progress. She's also got a great sense of humor so I love that.

-JC

I can gladly say I got past the most difficult time of my life with the help and support of Dr. B.


She took her time in understanding my concerns and was attentive, finding the best solutions. Her sincerity and warm presence made me feel comfortable and truly cared for. I am forever grateful for the opportunity to work together!

-AC

Dr B is the most genuine, authentic, and present therapist I have ever worked with. Scheduling with her is easy and convenient and she is an excellent listener! I highly recommend her, especially for working moms, those struggling with high functioning anxiety or managing life transitions and stress.

-JW

Dr. Beachkofsky is an amazing psychiatrist. She helped me work through some issues that had been plaguing me for a while. She allowed me to have a voice and do my own research when it came to my treatment. In addition, she genuinely has empathy for me and my concerns about treatment. I would recommend Dr. Beachkofsky to anyone needing psychiatric assistance.

Is Dr. B the Right Fit for You?

Here are some reasons we'd be a great fit!

  • You’re new to the idea of medication
  • You’ve had a less-than-ideal experience with meds in the past
  • You want combined therapy and meds to ensure you get the most out of our time together
  • You love learning about your brain and taking an active part in your mental wellness
  • You want longer, virtual appointments at times like lunch and evenings
  • Your long-term goal is graduating from care when you’re ready

I'm not a good fit if any of these are your situation:

  • You won’t consider meds AT ALL
  • You need prescriptions for controlled medications (ie Xanax, Adderall, etc)
  • You’ve had a recent mental health hospitalization
  • You’re on medications that require regular labs and vital signs
  • You’ve been having suicidal thoughts, or have trouble staying safe because of self-harm

**I strongly recommend IN-PERSON CARE if your situation is listed here

If you think we’d be a great fit working together please reach out and schedule a call with me!


15 minutes is just the right amount of time to see if you’re ready to team up with me on your path to feeling better!
