The Offline AI Progress Note Creator

NOTER-You-tube Banner-ver2_edited.png
Effortless notes, endless progress

Create full SOAP and DAP progress notes in seconds with the offline AI note creator, built by therapists for therapists.

Simply write something brief about your session NOTER will generate a full progress note. 

Complete Security and Privacy

Unlike other AI tools for therapists, NOTER runs entirely offline on your own computer. After you set up NOTER and download the AI model to your computer, it works 100% offline. No sensitive client data is ever transmitted off of your computer, let alone stored on a company's server. Not even the AI model on your computer stores any data; it has no memory of previous notes, and neither adapts nor learns from your input.


Customizable to Your Approach

You can choose either a SOAP or DAP note format, add a theoretical orientation for the scribe to consider, and fine tune the scribe’s creative license, called temperature, to your liking. You can process one note at a time or do a whole batch of notes at once You can copy NOTER's output note by note or section by section.  You can add any text that you want to be pasted to every note., such as a boilerplate telehealth language. There are lots of ways to adapt NOTER to your context and personal style. 


Made by Therapists for Therapists

NOTER was completely designed and developed by practicing clinicians. We made a helpful tool for ourselves and we’re thrilled to share it with you.

Designed to Reduce Bias

We designed NOTER to avoid biased and stigmatizing language that can unintentionally creep into manually-written notes. NOTER consistently creates notes that are compassionate, objective,  and professional.

Minimum Requirements

Operating System

  • macOS 11 (Big Sur) or later

  • 16 GB (recommended for better performance)


  • 5 GB of free disk space (minimum)

From NOTER Team Members

“I was excited about AI tools to help my practice, but I felt uncomfortable allowing a third party into the psychotherapy process. I developed NOTER for therapists who want to save time while protecting their client’s privacy.” - Mike Finn, PhD


“NOTER shaves hours off my work week by taking my fragmented session notes and turning them into formal documentation.” - Danielle McDowell, LPC 


“I love how I can modify NOTER to be personalized to me. The more I use it, the more I can instantly create notes that reflect my own voice and approach.” – Carli Wargo, LCSW
