Appointments at The Talk Doctor

Dr. Julie Gowthorpe, R.S.W. and Associates is pleased to assist you in making therapy accessable. Unless it is required by your insurer, a doctor's referral is not necessary. Some insurers require referrals or may have additional requirements. Appointments can be booked through or by calling 613-962-1852.


Private sessions begin at $160.00. Some or all of this cost (with a limited amount per year) may be covered by a third-party insurer; however, because we do not have access to your insurance information, this is something that you will need to explore. You will need to ensure that your plan covers Social Work.

In addition, we provide direct billing to Health Canada for clients with First Nation Status (Band Card), Blue Cross for Veteran's (Canadian Forces), Victim Services (Ontario), Legal Aid, and Criminal Compensation Board. If you have an Employee Assistance Plan through your work or organization, please note that we are not EAP providers. This is something that would need to arrange directly through your Human Resources Department. If you have a request or question about a different funding source, please feel free to contact our office directly to discuss.

Our clinical time with you is 50 minutes per session.

Payment is made at the end of each session and the following payment methods are accepted:

If coverage is available through your third pary insurer, you will need to make payment privately for the service and then submit your receipt to your insurance company.
