If you feel ready to explore and transform self-defeating patterns, beliefs, and behaviors, I’d be honored to partner with you in a journey towards lasting change. My priority is to listen closely, creating a supportive environment that allows us to collaborate on a plan that will get to the root of the issues that brought you to therapy. We will work on expanding your toolbox of skills to make life more manageable, attending to emotional, physical, spiritual, and cultural factors that can open new pathways for healing. I will integrate a broad array of therapeutic orientations and tools in order to help you move in new directions. These could include mindfulness, emotional regulation, strength-based/solution focused, cognitive/behavioral (CBT, ACT, DBT), parts work/ internal family systems (IFS), psychodynamic, attachment styles, sandtray, interpersonal neurobiology, and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR).
I work with adults and adolescents who are experiencing life transitions, loss, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, grief, trauma, and chronic pain/illness. Working in a busy psychiatric practice over the past decade has given me experience with complicated mental health presentations, PTSD, ADHD, TBI, bipolar, complex and developmental trauma, personality disorders, and treatment resistant depression. I have prior experiences in school social work, residential substance abuse, and mediation. When my children were young, I taught piano to all ages from a home studio. In addition to my work, I love reading, walking the woods, gardening, playing piano, choral singing, and spending time with my husband, our two adult children and beloved miniature dachshund.

Hello! My name is Barbara (Barb) Starling and I’m a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) in the state of Michigan.
My goal is to help people achieve a higher quality of life and to improve their well-being emotionally, physically, culturally, and spiritually.
My practice includes working with adults who may be experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, chronic stress, trauma (including developmental trauma from childhood), grief/loss, and difficult life transitions. I will work collaboratively with you on the mutual development of goals for therapy. I’m invested in an approach that emphasizes an integrative, heart-centered, holistic approach to mental wellness. I incorporate therapeutic modalities such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Attachment Focused EMDR, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction to name a few.
My specialization is Attachment-Focused EMDR, PTSD, and Trauma. I am a Certified EMDR therapist, Consultant, and Facilitator of EMDR trainings for the Parnell Institute. I received my EMDR training through the Parnell Institute and certifications through EMDRIA. I have practiced Social Work since 1990 and I am a member of the Academy of Certified Social Workers (ACSW). I worked for our local Community Mental Health system for 23 years before “retiring” into private practice in February of 2014.
I would be honored to help you navigate the journey to a more peaceful, balanced, and healthy life.
Welcome! Starting counseling is not easy and by coming here you have taken an important first step. This is meant to be a safe and non-judgmental space. I am a licensed master social worker with a wide variety of life experiences which have given me the opportunity to connect with people from diverse backgrounds and cultures. I am continually working to expand my therapeutic knowledge and skills in order to offer clients the right treatment for individual needs. That said I do embrace aspects of “positive psychology”. I like to accentuate what is right with you and not focus only on what is “wrong” with you. I have specialized training in Infant Mental Health, several behavioral therapies (DBT, CBT, ACT, MBCT), Child Parent Psychotherapy, and trauma informed therapies. I lean towards the so called “third wave” cognitive behavioral therapies which include concepts such as acceptance and mindfulness. I have experience treating people with a range of challenges including but not limited to depression, anxiety, relationship challenges, grief and loss, PTSD and trauma. I believe that everyone has the capacity to lead a fulfilling and meaningful life. Sometimes we face challenges and barriers which may seem overwhelming. Therapy can help identify the source of these challenges and how to overcome them.
Currently I work with adults and couples, and accept most major insurances.

Born and raised in the East Lansing area, I earned a degree in Clinical Hypnotherapy from Hypnosis Motivation Institute (HMI). HM a college in Tarzana, California, is the only accredited college of Hypnotherapy in the country, founded in 1968. I graduated with honors. I hold specialty certifications with the American Hypnosis Association in: Therapeutic Imagery, Grief Recovery, Hypnosis for the Caregiver, Healing Trauma with Hypnosis, and Past Life Regression Therapy.
Much of my focus has been with issues of anxiety, sleep disturbances, self-acceptance, spiritual growth, habit control, relationship issues, and fear management.
Hypnotherapy has changed my life in very personal and powerful ways. After graduating from Haslett High school in 2006 I developed a severe substance abuse disorder. I spent years attempting to overcome my addiction. I am proud to say that I have been clean and sober since 2015, something I celebrate every day! Hypnotherapy has helped me shift from being sober to truly enjoying my life. I am no longer controlled by my anxiety and fear.
My goal as a hypnotherapist is to help you experience how powerful your mind is. The applications for Hypnotherapy are only limited by one’s imagination and motivation.
In our first session we use suggestibility testing to find out exactly how your unique mind processes information. In this way hypnotic suggestions are tailored to your subconscious.
Hypnosis is not yet covered by most insurance policies. My fee per session is $150. I also offer a needs-based sliding scale. With a signed release I can work in collaboration with your physician or psychotherapist.
I will be happy to schedule a no-risk initial consultation to explore ways in which Hypnotherapy might work for you. Only if you schedule a second session will you be charged for the initial consultation.
I look forward to meeting with you and sharing the potentially transformative impact of Hypnotherapy.
