Julia Oppy, MA, MFTC, DMFT Student and Rocky Mountain MFT Counseling works from an empathetic and compassionate approach. Julia utilizes her own welcoming and non-judgemental nature and an integrative method to therapy, customizing therapuetic techniques, goals, and theories on a case by case basis rather than using a cookie cutter (one theory) strategy. Just like with anything else, our therapy lens cannot be 'one size fits all'. Marriage and Family Therapists base their therapuetic style on systemic theories. Looking at relationships from a systemic viewpoint, all interpersonal relationships are effected by all outside influences.. family, family of origin, friends, co-workers, society, culture, etc. Julia sees the value in collaboration and wants you to have a say in the direction of your counseling experience.
