  • Virtual Therapy Connect gives you a tried-and-true way to connect with your existing patients to provide additional services and convenience, as well as grow your practice with new patients that will find your listing on our site.

    Take the time to upload a photo and write a short message of introduction highlighting your skills and specialties. It’s also crucial to upload a full biography, which will be reviewed by patients looking to connect with practitioners with experience in their presenting issue.

  • As a component of this service, you agree to offer FREE 10-minute consultations to prospective patients initiating a connection with you. These consultations are intended to help new patients overcome their fears of therapy, grow their confidence using virtual tools and see if there is a personality and expertise fit between you. Use the free consultation to help your prospective patient determine if a full, scheduled appointment is the appropriate and beneficial next step.

    If you have existing patients, connecting with them is easy. Instruct your patients to browse to your name under “Find a Therapist,” click on your full profile, and then click at the top of the page “Request to Connect with Your Therapist.” You may also send them a link to your Unique URL if you have one.

  • Before you conduct a virtual session for the first time, consider scheduling a Practice Client Session. If you are a Gold-level subscriber, this service is included in your monthly fee but all levels can engage Virtual Therapy Connect for this service—the one-time fee for Basic and Premier-level subscribers is worth it!

    A Practice Client Session gives you the opportunity to connect with a VTC customer support specialist and get feedback on how to optimize your virtual office. We will review:

    1. Lighting – you don’t want to be too well lit or over-exposed [i.e., angelic] or have too much background lighting so that your face appears dark or mean
    2. Camera Placement – you want your camera to be at eye-level so that you don’t appear to be looking up or down; it’s important for you to be able to watch your patient but also appear to be looking in their eyes!
    3. Background suggestions – how can you position your camera so that your background looks pleasing and uncluttered to minimize potential distractions?
    A Practice Client Session will help you to use these innovative tools confidently and minimize disruptions or technical issues from the start so that you can concentrate on your patient—not on your technology.

We've designed and built a unique software solution specifically focused on the technical security needs of therapists. We provide continued access to great tools like VTConnect, our proprietary cross-platform video/chat software for PC and Mac, with iOS and Android in BETA release, a Virtual Office, where you can securely accept payments for services, and we've added great new features like additional communications functions (messaging, voice, text chat, file sharing, etc.) that are all safe, secure, and industry compliant.

  • Multi-platform video-teleconferencing software that utilizes encrypted audio and video transmission, and also marks and tracks each session with unique session IDs
