There are times when personal, work, or family problems make it hard to enjoy life. You may be feeling overwhelmed by everyday demands or finding it hard to feel pleasure in life. Whether your concerns are recent or long-term, sometimes problems are too difficult to handle alone — and that’s where we can help.
The Virtual Therapist Network is a network of professional online therapists & counselors who provide face-to-face therapy and counseling.
That means you’ll be able to see, hear, and interact with your online therapist in the same way. All you need is a computer with webcam and speakers, a reliable Internet connection, and a private space to speak with your online therapist.
100% Private, Encrypted, & HIPAA Compliant
Our proprietary video system employs Transport Layer Security (TLS) to encrypt both voice and video data. TLS enables us to comply with requirements of the HIPAA Security Rule for the transmission of patient health information over the Internet.
Furthermore, at the Virtual Therapist Network, we do not monitor, view, record, or store any video, audio, or text chat anywhere at any time. Our online therapy video system was designed to be 100% private and confidential for our members and their online therapists.
Benefits of Online Therapy:
Daily life is busy. Add work/school, daily errands, children, travel time and the cost of gas to your therapist’s office and therapy becomes inconvenient at best. Online therapy lets you do it all from the comfort of your home and within your own schedule, which makes it so much easier and effective.
Living in a rural location or having limited choices in your area means online therapy can give you immediate access to a trusted online therapist of your choosing.
Perhaps you’re apprehensive about therapy; a lot of people are. Maybe you’re suffering from anxiety or agoraphobia that’s preventing you from leaving home. Or, maybe you’re just worried about running into someone you know.
With online therapy, you can take your sessions in the comfort of your own home and never have to worry about those things.
Anonymity / Confidentiality
We respect your right to privacy and anonymity. For that reason, we keep membership information to an absolute minimum with only the following data requested when you join:
|Requested At Sign-Up||Requested After Sign-Up to Complete Profile|

Additionally, there is no search tool on the Virtual Therapist Network website for anyone to search our client/patient members.
Online therapists, who work from their home-office, typically charge a lot less due to no added overhead (i.e. office, staff, etc.) costs. That translates to big savings for you!
Online Booking Calendars
Each online therapist has an online booking calendar, which you can see and use to instantly book appointments.
Once an appointment is booked, the online therapist’s calendar will be updated with your appointment and both you and the therapist will receive an email notification with the date and time of your session.
To help ensure you don’t miss your appointment, we’ll also send you an email reminder 24 Hours before your scheduled appointment.
Connect with Multiple Online Therapists & Counselors
Once registered, you’ll immediately be able to connect and email any therapist directly using our built-in messaging system.
Our private messaging system is a great way to keep open lines of communications with your online therapist to ensure you get the best help.
