About The Association of Private Practice Therapists

couple in therapy sessionThe Association of Private Practice Therapists (APPT) is a multi-disciplinary group of mental health professionals in Nebraska. The organization provides educational, social, and networking opportunities, as well as a forum for the exchange of practice management information for mental health practitioners.

APPT is the result of grassroots meetings of private practice professionals who were interested in impacting the regulation and legislation of mental health services. At the time the meetings were held in the fall of 1993, 45 participants established the initial organizational structure of APPT. The organization now has about 200 members.

Therapists who have part-time or full-time practices are invited and encouraged to join, as are students and individuals who are involved in or interested in providing clinical services.

The accomplishments of APPT since it was founded in September 1993, are incredible. Members throughout Nebraska represent counseling (marriage and family, addictions, EAP, and pastoral), social work, psychology, psychiatry, nursing, and educational therapy. APPT is the first truly multi-disciplinary organization for mental health providers in the state. APPT was incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in 1995.
