Our Team

Capital Therapy Services is owned and operated by two local Speech Pathologists - Janelle and Samantha.

Janelle and Samantha each have 2 young children of their own and as mothers, Canberran locals and speech pathologists, they understand how to work with clients and their families to support each person in their own individual community.

Capital Therapy Services welcomed Georgia to our team in May 2016 and Emily in March 2018.
