Step 2: At the time of your scheduled session, login to the website at www.virtualtherapyconnect.com. Or you can also launch the VTConnect App directly from your device and skip down to Step 6. 

Step 3: Click the "My Clients" button in the top left to view the clients you have previously connected with. 

Note: If you do not see your client listed, please ask them to follow the Instructions to Create a Connection with a Therapist.

Step 4: Click on the client with whom you would like to connect.

Step 5: Begin the VTC Session from your client's profile page by clicking the "Begin VTC Session" button. This will launch the VTConnect App. If you have not already downloaded the appropriate App for your device or if your App version is out of date, you will be directed to download the appropriate App when you click the "Begin VTC Session" button.

Important Note for Mac Users: If you do not have the App already installed when you click the "Begin VTC Session" button you will get an error box. You can click the "Search App Store" button and type in "VTConnect" to find the App and then install it. Or you can also click the link to "Download VTConnect App" below the Begin VTC Session button in your Virtual Office.

Step 6: Login to the VTConnect App using the same username and password you use for the Virtual Therapy Connect website. Be sure to check the "Remember Me" box if you want the App to remember your login credentials when the App is running on your device - this is helpful when you have multiple client sessions scheduled for the same day.

All messages sent/received will be displayed in the text-chat window.

STEP 10: Click the "End" button when your session is complete. Note: Only the therapist can end a session - if a client exits the treatment room you will receive notice in the text-chat window and if the client returns to the App they will be offered the opportunity to re-join the session in progress.
