In her practice, she uses comprehensive assessment tools and procedures, including complete physical exam, appropriate lab testing, and family history to establish causes of imbalance. She strongly believes that providing a compassionate and safe place to be heard from is an important part of the healing process.

“I was referred by a friend to Dr. Starling after some very impersonal and unproductive consults with my physician. Dr. Starling's holistic approach to health and well-being helped me to understand and utilize the wide variety of tools available to re-establish a balanced lifestyle. Working with her was a very individualized, empowering experience, and one I could not recommend highly enough to those of you truly wanting to take control of your health.”
“When I contacted Dr. Starling for Naturopathic treatment I was feeling depressed and experiencing symptoms of stress including disrupted sleep and hair loss. My family doctor prescribed me an antidepressant medication which I was reluctant to take. I felt that Dr. Starling listened to my concerns and after taking a thorough assessment provided me with an effective treatment for stress that helped to decrease my cortisol levels and helped to regulate my sleep. The treatment was pivotal in helping me to regain my stability and to reestablish my physical and mental health and sense of wellness. The most meaningful part of this process was feeling that all aspects of my experience were considered and I felt that I could easily talk with Dr. Starling about my concerns because of her approachable, empathic and
compassionate nature ”
“I've been seeing Dr. Starling for almost a year, and the difference in my health is amazing. When I first got to her office I was a mess with no energy, unable to eat much and just feeling really awful. She instantly suggested some changes to my diet and gave me the first of my treatments in the form of some homeopathic medicine and after about a week of taking that I knew I was on the road to recovery. Since then I have only improved and am in the stages of planning my own business. I haven't had this much energy in years and I know I wouldn't have improved this much this soon without her caring and compassionate guidance.”
“…in all my years of seeing doctors….my time with you has been the most rewarding & certainly the most helpful. I haven’t felt this good in years, & its thanks to your kindness & dedication. Thank you for being so nurturing & supportive. I finally felt like I could mention even the tiniest symptoms without feeing like a hypochondriac…”
“Dr Jolyn Starling has been taking care of my families health needs for years. She is always looking for new and innovative ways to help in our rather complex situation, and yet find ways to keep it all affordable as well - I really appreciate that about her. My children both adore her bedside manner. She honestly and compassionately listens to them and remembers what they have said from visit to visit even when it is a few months between. She goes above and beyond to help. I would highly recommend Jolyn to anyone, but especially to anyone with complex care needs. ”
