Our Treatment Plan Beta is Live!


beta availability graphic

Chronicler’s treatment planning beta is now officially available!

This beta is an opportunity for you to help us develop the best treatment planning experience possible, and your feedback in the coming weeks and months will play an important role in the enhancements and improvements that we choose to roll out. 

This beta is available to all therapists with an active Chronicler subscription, so feel free to try it out at your convenience. If you don’t have a subscription yet, you can sign up for a 2 week free trial here.

Continuous improvement is a core tenet of our development approach, and we’d love to have you along for the journey as we strive towards our goal of making it easy to compose high quality treatment plans in record time.

Happy treatment planning!

– Andrew & Philip

Treatment Plans Are Almost Here!


We’re excited to announce that we’ve been hard at work at a treatment planning feature to complement our Chronicler progress notes! This is something a lot of our supporters have been requesting. And, quite frankly, I want it too!

We’ve learned a lot from developing Chronicler and we’re eager to bring more simplicity, speed, and quality to treatment planning.

You’ll see an updated, streamlined interface, new ways of chaining your client’s symptoms with behavioral examples, easy ways of showing the relationship between goals, objectives, treatments, and progress, and much more.

Look out for our beta treatment planner coming December 2022.

Full Chronicler Launch


The past year and a half has been a wild ride. Philip and I first started working on what would become Chronicler in the beginning of 2020. This August, we concluded the last stage of our beta trials and launched Chronicler as a paid subscription. While this transition was a lot of work, this enabled us to pay for our growing technology costs and to give us the flexibility in our schedules to continue making Chronicler even better. We’re grateful for your patronage and continued support as Chronicler evolves. We’re excited for our planned list of improvements and always welcome addition ideas. 

At the end of the day, we’re two friends making something cool to better the lives of therapists (starting with myself) and the lives of therapists’ clients. As such, feel free to contact us if you’re interested in learning more about our mission and how you can help.

Thanks again!


Upcoming changes to Chronicler Beta


Thank you for trying out Chronicler! Your support and feedback has been invaluable in helping us continually improve as a resource for excellent progress notes.

As part of our continued investment in building a better progress note, Chronicler will be transitioning to a paid subscription in the near future. We would love to offer this free forever, however it takes time and tools to keep the site running, and the monthly web hosting bills don’t accept “best intentions” as payment. With that said, we’re committed to providing you with the best progress notes experience for your therapeutic practice at an affordable price.

For now, there is nothing you need to do. You can continue to use Chronicler for free, and we’ll keep you informed when more details are available.

Thanks again!

Andrew and Philip

Change Log – January 16, 2023

Andrew’s Guide to Fantastic Progress Notes

Documentation takes an escalating priority in the ever-developing therapy world. I hear many therapists say they spend just as much time writing documentation as they spend with clients. And yet, most also tell me they received little to no training in documentation...
