Therapy Pro is led by a team of professionals in the therapy field who bring extensive experience and knowledge from across all aspects of the sector.

The Team

Therapy Pro’s Managing Directors, Julie Patterson and Phil Laidlaw, are committed to developing and maintaining a culture that supports both clients and staff to achieve their full potential.

General Manager, Karen Staal, brings energy for change to the disability sector, and is central to Therapy Pro’s client-centred approach. Karen is highly aware of the many moving parts required to deliver therapy and at the end of the day, takes seriously the responsibility to get things right for the person and their family..

Supporting Karen and the team of therapists are the Directors of Service Delivery, Lara Strohfeldt, Dr Fiona Davis, Liz Murray and Kirstie Hinsley.

Lara, Fiona, Liz and Kirstie are experienced professionals who in their roles, provide clinical and management oversight to ensure outcomes that create real change for people. With a collaborative way of looking at complex situations, and sometimes a creative approach, Lara, Fiona, Liz and Kirstie navigate clinical and commercial priorities to support a skilled team of therapists in a multidisciplinary framework.

The unique combination of skills, experience and strength that the Directors of Service Delivery bring to their roles, provides Therapy Pro with the right scaffolding to meaningfully work with a broad range of people from moderate through to very complex needs.

Our skilled therapists work and collaborate across five allied health areas –occupational therapy, speech and language pathology, psychology, social work, and physiotherapy– in a multidisciplinary way.

Therapy Pro’s central office team has a diverse range of experience that supports the therapists and keeps the business running, to deliver the very best in customer service.
