Online Consulting


In addition to office appointments, consultations with Dr. Staik are available online via Skype video (or audio), phone, or E-mail.  

Why online?

Some clients prefer the convenience of online sessions via phone or Skype from their home, either as an addition to person-to-person sessions or a primary alternative. 

E-mail therapy is another option. It can be an effective complement to therapy, or a primary option as well. It allows clients to set their own pace, take time to compose and reflect on their questions and responses. It can be used between weekly person-to-person sessions, to review session topics or assignments, or a way to keep notes and records for client's 'work.' Messages are usually answered within 24 hours.
