About Me

Counseling in my view is the ability to help identify behaviors with individuals that are negative destructive and harmful. My goal is to dialogue with a client and help uncover solutions, guidance in resolving personal, social, or psychological problems and difficulties is not forced on anyone. Counseling is collaboration between clients and trained knowledgeable clinicians. Participation from the client is essential in the success of any therapeutic exchange with me. Most people need a platform to identify problem areas in their thinking and in their lives that hinder them from progressing and understanding why they cannot succeed in society or towards their personal goals. Even though I do not prescribe medications, sometimes, medications are required to gain a mental balance, sometimes not. Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy are approaches I may apply. Confidentiality may not apply to cases involving a minor child. In such cases, as a mental health professional, I may advise a parent, managing conservator or guardian of a minor, with or without minor’s consent, of the treatment needed by or given to the minor. Sometimes change can be scary and it takes courage to seek help and take the first steps toward change. I look froward to working with you! Should you feel in need of urgent help or that you are in crisis at any time during our work together; please call 1-800-273-TALK 24 hours a day; or 911. This forum does not provide any type of emergency services, so I want to be sure you know who to contact if you need immediate help.

Dr. Starling is an excellent example of a patient and empathetic listener. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a person that has a high level of expertise and a forthright approach to his patients.

Written by R.A. on Feb 10, 2022 after therapy with Guy for 3 weeks on issues concerning trauma and abuse

Dr Starling has been such an enormous help to me as I have been recovering from a traumatic event and working to reestablish relationships with my family. He has given me so many tools to help process anger, anxiety, and fear. I really appreciate his calm and disarming demeanor and his sensitivity to my religious background. I belive he has made a huge difference in my life and, by extension, the lives of those around me.
