As an Intuitive Massage Therapist, I am in tune with the human body and work to create balance in the tissue as well as with the individual. I am able to assist my client with a variety of issues that they bring to me.

Life should feel good!

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.

I am EMDR trained and work with teens and adults experiencing trauma and other stressors, anxiety, and depression.

 

Do you feel like you are a tangled mess tied into a giant knot thrown into a dark corner? Are you not sure where to start but know you want help? Are you starting on a new or exciting phase in life but instead of feeling happy, you just want things to go back to the way they were? I know it can feel so frustrating, wanting to live, and parts of you are holding you back.

I believe each person has within them the ability to move toward wellness under the right conditions. I consider each person an expert on themselves. I use therapies and techniques based on these beliefs and which support empowerment in those who enter my therapeutic space.

I received training and supervision in Somatic and Attachment-Focused (SAFE) EMDR at the PTI Institute in Ann Arbor, MI in 2022, an EMDR International Association approved training organization. I have practiced Internal Family Systems in my own therapy and in my own life. I have read books by its founders and experts. I have completed webinars composed by its experts and founder. I have NOT completed the Level 1 training and cannot claim to be an IFS clinician.

I trained through Geek Therapeutics to become a Therapeutic Game Master! Game play in a group setting can be a little less intimidating than sitting in a circle sharing feelings, while still getting the therapy benefit. Yes, it’s still therapy! I use various therapeutic approaches, including Narrative, ACT, and some IFS-informed.
