Step 1: Establish VTC login credentials 

IMPORTANT: If your current VTC login credentials were established while registering as a client at the Virtual Therapy Website prior to 3/21/20, you will need to establish new credentials.  Click HERE to learn how.

Option 1: If you are a prospective client, visit our Virtual Therapy Connect 3rd Party Verified Therapist Directory and use the available filters to help you find a good-fit therapist to meet your needs. When you do, send the therapist a Secure Message and you will be prompted to create your VTC login credentials.  
Option 2: If you are an existing client of a VTC therapist, look for an email with the subject "VTConnect for <Provider Name> account established” and use the link to establish your VTC login credentials. 
Option 3: If you are an existing client of a VTC therapist, your practitioner might instruct you to go to their VTConnect Office Portal and click "Register" to create your VTC login credentials.

NOTE: Your VTC login credentials will allow you to login to the Virtual Office Portal and the VTConnect Care App, and you use these same credentials to connect with practitioners in different organizations.

    Step 2: Install the FREE VTConnect Care App by going to the VTConnect Office Portal or for Mac, iOS, or Android by going to your device's App store and searching VTConnect Care. Or click HERE.
