Feeling overwhelmed? Don’t feel like yourself lately? Stop struggling and trying to white-knuckle your way through life when we can do this together.


I’m Jessica Beachkofsky, MD (Dr. B), a board-certified psychiatrist in Florida. I specialize in treating anxiety, depression, and trauma disorders and helping people successfully navigate life’s big hurdles and challenges. Combining medications with therapy provides quicker, more lasting results. And seeing adults in a virtual clinic with evening and lunch-time options means we can have appointments without a lot of disruption for you.


If you’re new to the idea of medication or if you’ve had a less than ideal experience with meds in the past, let's talk!


You don’t have to feel rushed or pressured to make a decision about medications, and you don’t have to just take what I tell you to. Working with me means shared decision making once you feel you have the information that you need to make a choice that aligns with your values. When you feel good about your treatment, it’s more effective (and usually works faster!). And I always combine therapy with medications to ensure you get the most out of our time together.


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 treatment solutions (meds + therapy) that lead you to the best version of you!


What makes working with me different? We'll work together to reach your treatment goals. Having a strong, positive connection with me, means better treatment results for you. Let's appropach your problems as a team. (It might even be fun!)

I've been a practicing psychiatrist for over 10 years and love working with motivated patients who want to learn more about their brains and skills to maximize mental wellness. After over a decade in the Air Force, working in a big hospitals and large clinics, I'm thrilled to run my own small private practice 100% virtually. I'm optimistic and enthusiastic about engaging in your mental wellness and run my clinic on knowledge and insight. Now is the perfect time to reach out to me!

Get to know Psychiatrist Dr. Jessica Beachkofsky, who serves patients from Florida via telehealth.

A board-certified psychiatrist, Dr. Beachkofsky is the Owner of Beach Health MD, a virtual psychiatric practice for Florida residents. Recognizing the importance of a holistic approach to mental health care, she understands that each individual’s unique circumstances, medical conditions, and complex histories must be taken into account. She is particularly dedicated to serving individuals navigating major life transitions, such as college graduation, relocation, or parenthood.

In her clinical role, she specializes in positive psychiatry, but her training extends to various therapeutic modalities, including cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, supportive and insight-oriented therapy, and psychodynamic psychotherapy. Her primary goal is to empower patients to make informed decisions about their treatment, aligning with their personal values, whether it involves medication, therapy, or a combination of both. She finds her work most rewarding when patients actively engage in their mental wellness journey, with the ultimate aim of graduating from care when they feel ready. 

A native of Florida, Dr. Beachkofsky pursued her undergraduate degree in Biomedical Science at University of South Florida, Tampa. She then obtained her medical degree from the Uniformed Services University F. Edward Hebert School of Medicine in 2008, and completed her residency in psychiatry at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio in 2012.

With an unwavering commitment to her specialty, Dr. Beachkofsky has been board-certified in psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN).

In order to remain up to date in her field, Dr. Beachkofsky is an active member of the American Psychiatric Association and the Florida Psychiatric Society. She has over a decade of service in the military and has gained invaluable expertise, from overseeing an inpatient psychiatric unit as the medical director to teaching within the graduate medical education system and caring for outpatients in virtual clinics.

Passionate about teaching, she currently provides talks and educational resources to boost collaboration between therapists and psychiatrists through a website called Brain Bites with Dr. B. She previously taught within the graduate medical education system (medical students, interns, residents) and provided training and collaboration within different mental health disciplines.

Optimistic, engaging, and outcome-oriented, Dr. Beachkofsky approaches her practice philosophy with a wealth of knowledge and insight. She recognizes that personal growth and transformative change require dedication and hard work. Her passion lies in partnering with patients to help them unlock their full potential and optimize their mental well-being.
