Chantell Paris,

LCSW-Executive Director

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who earned my Master’s Degree from Fordham University. My career began in 2004 at Ability Beyond Disability supporting adults and children with physical and intellectual disabilities in all aspects of daily living. I went on to work for the State of CT: DDS West Region providing therapeutic support in residential and vocational settings while working part time for a private practice providing individual and group psychotherapy for adults and children. In 2017, I began working as a full time social worker for the Department of Children and Families where I performed a variety of highly skilled case work services for children and their families. Currently, I am working as a high school social worker with youth who have a variety of needs such as anxiety, depression, truancy, ADHD, conduct disorder, emotional disturbances, etc.. I am passionate about helping others make positive changes in their lives and I look forward to working with you!
