About Me

Your psychiatric care should do more than alleviate your symptoms. It should guide you toward a greater sense of clarity and peace of mind than you had before you ever visited a psychiatrist.

Highly recommend. Dr. Beard is very professional, while still caring and approachable. In the past, I have had to go to a psychiatrist for medication maintenance and a separate psychologist for counseling/therapy. In this case, Dr. Beard excels at both.

Socially awkward. Doesn't really talk to you or give advice. My first time visit was a complete waste of time. I will not be going back.

Dr. Beard overmedicated me to what my lawyers think is criminal. Be VERY careful with her, and I agree with prior posts about her fees, etc. I honestly don’t think she cares about patients.

Dr. Beard has a unique style in terms of how she discusses difficult issues and I think this may put off some people. However, I believe she is truly committed to helping her patients and does a great job helping you manage whatever symptoms brought you to her. If you are looking for help with your biochemical psychiatric problems, a doc who has good and regular availability, and a real depth of knowledge about helping and prescribing the right course of action, Dr. Beard is a good choice!

Socially awkward, agreed with my reasons for being depressed and suicidal without offering any hope or helpful solutions. She asked me if I thought I needed medication and what I thought might help (or has in the past), and just left me feeling worse. Still feel shaken by the whole interaction. $280 wasted and an hour of my life I can't get back.

My wife has been seeing Dr. Beard for a number of years now since the death of her parents and I am happy she has been here for her. I recommend her highly

This woman is the most greedy "doctor" I have ever met. She passes herself off as a "concierge psychiatrist", but there is nothing concierge about her. She charges $300 for an initial consultation. 40 minute appointments are $180 and 20 minute appointments are $130! She will not refill your medications unless you come and see her again and pay her again. If you book a 20 minute or 40 minute appointment, she spends LESS THAN 10 MINUTES with you.

Dr. Beard was not helpful. She repeated back the problem and did not provide any type of solutions. After several sessions, my daughter stopped going. We felt that she was there for the money and did not really care about the patient.
