Teletherapy: Online Therapy and Counseling
There are times when problems in your personal life, work, or family 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 therapists & counselors who also provide face-to-face therapy and counseling online.
That means you'll be able to see, hear, and interact with your online therapist in the same way. All you need is the Internet, a computer with a webcam and speakers, and a quiet space.
Meet with an Online Therapist in Complete Privacy
Our proprietary video system employs Transport Layer Security (TLS) to encrypt both voice and video data. TLS enables us to comply with the stated requirements of the HIPAA Security Rule for the transmission of patient health information over the Internet.
More importantly, at the Virtual Therapist Network, we don't 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 you and your online therapist.
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 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.
With teletherapy, you can get help from the privacy of your home. And, if you have a partner in a third and separate location, that's OK, too! At the Virtual Therapist Network, three-party (1 provider & 2 clients) video conferences are possible.
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.
We respect your right to privacy and anonymity. For that reason, we keep membership information to a minimum and only ask for the information needed to create your account and facilitate a meeting with your selected provider.
Additionally, there is no search tool or capability on the Virtual Therapist Network website for anyone to search our client/patient members.
Online therapists, who work from their home office, typically charge less due to no added overhead (i.e. office, staff, etc.) costs. That translates to savings for you!

Only $4.95 a Month
This is not an introductory price. There is no contract to sign and you can cancel at any time. Session fees are determined by the provider and can be found on their individual profile page. To off-set video bandwidth costs, a prorated fee of .016 ¢ per video minute is collected when you book an appointment. That means a 60-minute appointment, for example, will cost $1.00 (60 minutes * .016 ¢) to book.
