This can certainly be fixed through number tweaks, for instance Soraka has one of the lowest base health / health gain per level. That is a great thing we can change to help fit her more into this role.
I know you really want to keep her kit the same and change how she works through numbers, but the fact is her kit is only suited for her current play style. You'll have to give her tank stats so she can go AP tank and starcall spam before what you want to happen will be viable.

This is the problem. Soraka has 725 range on her silence and 550 range on her auto attack. Getting within 300 range for starcall is a horrible idea, and decreasing its cooldown and damage means that in order to do much damage with it you have to stay in range for a while. If you're going to leave its range at 300 centered on Soraka, it needs to have high enough damage to punish them from coming close to her.

Who needs supports now? Let's all just take 0 CS sions and stick them in a bush then BLAM.

Super effective.

Durp, a little more health won't save Soraka. Give her a defensive steroid if you want her to play like taric or alistar, otherwise she is just food.

Such as a huge armor buff after using your heal?

SORAKA DONT USE STARFALL CAUSE THE RANGE ITS STUPID, and if you are going to increase the CD of the heal to double u dont reduce the ap ratio and the base heal , and riot want to do both which its stupid too, not even mention sona that with those nerfs she will be the only mage that will not be able to build AP items on her, thanks riot youre doing a great job with your game

I'd honestly rather have a 0 CS support Annie than a soraka that can't heal. AOE stuns from range ftw.

Hell, 0 CS anivia can protect a carry better than a Soraka with heals nerfed that bad.
