Randy Compton, MA

Registered Somatic Psychotherapist

1503 Yarmouth Ave, Boulder, Colorado

My approach to psychotherapy is to build a strong relationship with you so that the deepest part of you feels safe to feel the scariest feelings within. I use a variety of approaches, including somatic experiencing, attachment mastery, deep listening, occasional coaching, and gentle questioning. I see myself as a facilitator of your own growth process, using my decades of experience in the field and having done my own internal work so I know the territory you are working in. Rather than focus on specific symptoms, I work underneath them at the level of the unconscious, the inner child and the soul. Movement, dream work, and symbol card can also be used if it is right. You will grow and heal.


Rachel Weddle, MA, MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

3445 Penrose Place, Suite 250, Boulder, Colorado

As a relationship expert, I provide psychotherapy to individuals, couples and families that focuses on the relational issues that are being experienced. I help people identify patterns and cycles that negatively impact their relationships and help them learn to make the needed changes to end these negative cycles. I also provide parenting help that is rooted in attachment theory and developmental research to meet the needs of the children.


Howard Lambert, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Middlefork Road, Boulder, Colorado

Individual psychotherapy is a human encounter between two real people. In this encounter I need to be an accessible and honest participant. I see my clients as fellow travelors on the road to mental health and fullfilling relationships. Since I began my journey 50 years ago I may be farther along and I may have accumulated certain wisdom on the way. I take it as my job to tell you about any self-defeating behaviors I see you using and to give you ideas about what healthy alternative behaviors might be. Therapy is a joint endeavor designed to support youo in ejecting behaviors that keep you stuck and mastering new behaviors that increase your chances of deepening intimacy.


Sue McCullough, LCSW

Licensed Clincial Social Worker

700 Front Street, Suite 208, Louisville, Colorado

You have the answers within you! Those answers maybe hidden away, but they are inside you. I will help you dig out those answers so you can enjoy a more fulfilling life. I provide a safe environment were you can speak your mind and heart in complete confidentiality. I will meet you where you're at and listen closely challenging your belief system when necessary and providing support for you. I will hold the space for you as you discover the person you really are and enjoy the freedom of being you. I am also trained in Brainspotting and PSYCH-k.


Joe Soma, MA, MS, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

2769 Iris Ave, Suite 114, Boulder, Colorado

My work is typically a mix of traditional counseling and psychotherapy. Counseling tends to treat specific issues, behaviors, or conditions that are present. I will use this method more with supervisees, and with some clients. Psychotherapy tends to include not just actions and behaviors, but underlying thoughts, emotions, attitudes and beliefs formed from birth (or before) throughout the lifespan and their impact on what we do in the present. This is more typically seen as ‘therapy’. I do not separate our present experience and issues from the underlying systems that inform our actions, thus when working with any issue, we are also working with our core material at all times.


Peg Shippert, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

2760 29th St., Suite 2C, Boulder, Colorado

You don't have to figure everything out alone. You just need someone who has the training and experience to know how to help. Using EMDR, mindfulness, animal-assisted counseling, and other evidence-based approaches, I have guided many women and girls from feeling broken to feeling in control and able to enjoy life now. Ultimately, you will have a deeper understanding of how you’ve been affected by what happened to you, and you'll be able to put it in the past and live fully now.


Celeste Labadie, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

2769 Iris Ave. Ste. 108, Boulder, Colorado

Therapy can be a scary word. Have one session with me and I think you'll find my style to be anything but scary. Therapy is really a place to let go of what worries you or what you hold inside for fear of being judged. Before becoming a therapist people naturally gravitated to me because I have a grounding presence. What does that mean? It means you can trust me. It means I'm on your team and with your help, can lead you to new insights about how you can proceed with whatever situation or thoughts might be limiting you in your life. I offer many methods and techniques but they are secondary to helping you find the inner-grounding I know you already have--the wholeness you were born with.


Stewart Brown, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

1650 38th St.--Suite 206E, Boulder, Colorado

The real therapist is within actually, and the clinical psychologist only is the facilitator of this realization. Part of the facilitation process involves assisting the client in understanding burdens and then letting go of them so that there's peace and harmony in the internal system. There are many different ways to achieve this kind of resolution, but the process used should fit the individual client. My orientation depends a good bit on the client, but for the last ten years I have leaned heavily on a methodology called Internal Family Systems Therapy. If you want to learn more about this approach, I recommend a website: or call me.


April Pojman, MA, MS, LPC, CHT

Licensed Professional Counselor

2325 19th Street, Boulder, Colorado

What if you were already enough just as you are? What if you already had all the answers you need inside of you? Psychotherapy can help you get to know the innate wisdom of all the different parts of yourself and to gently remove the barriers that keep you from building the life you want. Through mindfulness of your own lived experience, you will gain confidence in your own ability to grow and heal.


Kathryn McGuirk, LCSW, CACII, EMDR

Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Addictions Counselor

100 Arapahoe, suite #12, Boulder, Colorado

Psychotherapy has a misconception of being scary or intimidating. What you can expect at Porchlight Therapy is a safe, cozy space to start looking inward. Here, we will use talk therapy to discover more about you! Psychotherapy can be challenging but also exhilarating and adventurous. We will explore significant events in your childhood, family and generational patterns but most importantly, how these impact who you are today.


Heather Pylant, MA, MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

1620 Lee Hill Road, Suite 7, Boulder, Colorado

My approach to Psychotherapy is client-centered, compassionate and direct. Even though talking therapy can yield positive results, it can also sometimes be limiting in its effects on long-lasting healing. My experience with EMDR, Mindfulness, the Expressive Arts, & Somatic Work offer extra support that goes deeper than the conscious mind to shift painful core beliefs & behaviors. Whether you like to tip-toe, dive, or are wanting an extra push, we go at your set pace into what’s causing you to feel caught or stalled. Your path is unique and valuable. Let me know if I can assist you in freeing yourself from stories that may be holding you back from your relationships and your life…


Allison Villarreal, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

2995 Baseline Road, Suite 100, Boulder, Colorado

No matter the reason you are choosing to seek therapy at this time, I understand that it can be overwhelming to chose the right therapist. When you are feeling anxious, depressed, sad or lost, the act of researching someone you can trust enough to open up to can be confusing, difficult or downright stressful. I have worked with individuals and couples for 15 years and treat all clients with respect, empathy, concern and care. I believe we all possess the inner strength and ability to make positive changes in our lives and I feel honored to guide each individual towards finding a more meaningful, peaceful and satisfying life. I kindly invite you to call to see if I may be the right fit.
