Allison Capper, Psychotherapist in Iowa

Allison Capper




Hi, I’m Allison. I received my Masters in Social Work from the University of Northern Iowa’s trauma-informed program. I’ve worked in the field as an advocate for survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence. I worked as a therapist at the UNI Counseling Center as a student intern serving college students with various mental health concerns.

I strive to create a welcoming and safe space for healing and growth to take place. I view the clients as the experts of their own lives and continuously provide support along their journey of therapy.
I look forward to supporting and empowering my clients on a path to identifying goals, brainstorming the different routes to achieve those goals, and the ability to review and modify throughout the process.

I find empathy, genuineness, and a collaborative relationship to be important in creating a space for healing to take place. I work with clients on developing coping strategies, skills, and techniques that foster growth.

A typical session with me looks like:

  • Partnering with you to build a therapeutic relationship
  • Creating an action plan collaboratively by brainstorming goals
  • Using interventions to process what you’re comfortable with
  • Discussing information between sessions including successes and challenges
  • Reviewing the treatment plan and goals to ensure therapeutic progress
  • Listening, encouraging, and empathizing throughout your journey

I hope you never feel the need to hide your bad days here.
