About Me

I am a licensed professional counselor licensed in Wisconsin with over 14 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, eating disorders, trauma, PTSD and personality disorders.

My counseling style is empathetic, supportive and open. I believe that it takes courage to come into counseling and want the experience to be impactful. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavioral therapy, solution focused, attachment theory based and trauma focused therapies. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Gia Hepfler. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Very thankful for Gia's time and input.

Written by A.L. on Nov 20, 2020 after therapy with Gia for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and coping with life changes

I really value my experience with Gia. It's incredibly helpful to know that through my hardships, I am validated and my voice is heard. She helped me come to terms in a way that still leaves me feeling confident and human.

She doesn't try to talk down to you, and actually listens (which means the world to me!) She asks questions if she is unclear about something, encourages me to ask or correct her if she got something wrong, and actually speaks in a way that seems to relate.

I have done three sessions with Gia and I am very happy with the way everything is going. She seems very insightful, is a very good listener and most importantly makes you feel safe to talk about most difficult topics.

Work with me!
