At this time, Dr. Staik does not participate in any insurance plans; however, most clients with insurance are reimbursed. For clients who wish to use their insurance, here's how it works. Clients self pay at the time of service; Dr. Staik provides a receipt with the necessary diagnostic/procedure codes that insurance companies require; clients mail their receipts to their insurance, and receive reimbursement checks directly. 

Please call your insurance company or consult the Member Benefits section of your insurance plan (Note: For clients who want couples counseling, do not ask about "marriage" or "couples" therapy per se (because no company covers marriage or relationship counseling as a diagnostic category); ask instead about "psychotherapy" or "family therapy" or "mental health" counseling in general.


Only checks (or cash) are accepted for payment for office appointments. Payments are made at the time of service and are not be billed.  Online sessions (Skype, phone, etc.) can be paid by check or online with a credit card.
