Leadership Team

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.


Julie Patterson and Phil Laidlaw are Therapy Pro’s Managing Directors.

General Manager, Karen Staal, brings energy for change to the disability sector and is central to this 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 and Dr Fiona Davis.

Lara and Fiona are two very 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 and Fiona 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 Lara and Fiona 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.

This Leadership Team is committed to developing and maintaining a culture that supports both clients and staff to achieve their full potential.
