Katherine Knight, PhD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

5277 Manhattan Circle, Suite 210, Boulder, Colorado

Pain and suffering are part of life and can’t be avoided. Sometimes life’s challenges turn into profound learning opportunities, and you are shown that you are stronger than you thought. At other times, if you don’t work to heal painful experiences, they can stay with you and make your life much more difficult. My goal as a therapist is to help you face challenges more effectively and ultimately, even grow from the difficulties you're facing so that you can embrace who you are and live your life to its fullest. You might have doubts that this is possible, but the truth is that it’s always possible, regardless of how much you are suffering.


Bill Frea, Ph.D., BCBA

Clinical Psychologist

636 Coffman Street, Suite 205, Longmont, Colorado

Psychotherapy is a process of assessing both the difficulties an individual is facing and the opportunities to build a better life. Being in therapy can be a very rewarding and motivating experience. Therapy should bring hope to your life, and challenge you to make choices to improve. The therapeutic relationship is a special one that provides support, strength, courage, and the tools to make valuable changes to your life.


Scott Boyd, M.A., LPCC, MFTC

Registered Psychotherapist

2027 Broadway, Suite B, Boulder, Colorado

I believe finding a nonjudgemental therapist you can have a genuine relationship with can be life changing. In my work with clients I focus more on what they can do themselves than I do on trying to control external circumstances. I use psychotherapy, mindfulness tools, CBT, acceptance and meditation to help clients grow through whatever they are suffering from.


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.


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.

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.


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.


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.


Melani Dizon, MA, MEd, LPCC, NLC, ACPEC

ACT Therapist & Coach

706 Front Street, #6, Louisville, Colorado

Psychotherapy involves a range of treatments that can help with a variety of issues you might be facing. As a general rule I primarily work with people who are in recovery for eating disorders and body image issues. That's where we start. However, because your food and body issues don't exist in a vacuum, I'm also able to help in a variety of other areas as well as we move forward in the recovery process especially as it relates to your career, relationships and communication, and recovery from sexual assault.


Jeremy Kalan, MA, LPCC, NCC, CPCC

Nationally Certified Counselor

4673 Tally Ho Ct, Boulder, Colorado

I provide a safe, nonjudgmental, empathetic place for you to heal and transform all that blocks you from thriving in your life. I specialize in supporting people with anxiety/stress, depression, trauma/PTSD, life purpose/meaning, anger, addictions, grief, and interpersonal issues. I utilize Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) skills to support you to regulate emotions, make more conscious decisions, shift harmful behaviors, and create a more meaningful life. I employ Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapy to guide you to heal your deepest wounds/traumas, learn to love yourself, gain self-esteem & confidence, lessen addictive behaviors, manage anger, and express your true Self to the world.


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.
