Chantelle Plauché, LCSW/Administrator

Chantelle Plauché is the founder and executive director of L’esprit. She obtained her Master’s degree in Social Work in 2006, and has since worked with a diverse range of individuals and families as a mental health counselor both in the schools and in her private practice. She has formed strong working relationships with many local organizations and school and community program leaders. Through her work, she became aware of the much larger, unmet need for further youth mental health services in the community, thus, giving her the idea for L’esprit which she opened in June of 2015.
