Ellice Plant CAPSW, HHC

Social Worker, Holistic Health Counselor

Mental health provider

As a holistic health counselor and licensed social worker, I work with adolescents and adults as they work to transform patterns and purpose. Some of the reasons people come to me include struggles with anxiety, depression, body image, gender expression and identity, family planning, and surviving abuse or assault. As a cisgender queer woman, I have both personal and professional experience in creating healthy, nourishing spaces for queer and trans people and those who love them. Through this work, I am continuously reminded that the anti-violence and anti-oppression work of the world happens on the individual level, first.

I co-own North Node Clinic with my partner, Kellen Grimm. We started our clinic to serve Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex people in an accessible and affordable way. We believe that competent care is about trusting your expertise about your body, your experiences, and your goals. A struggle many people face in accessing healthcare is having to educate their providers about their identities. At North Node Clinic, we know it is our responsibility to reach outside our own personal experiences in order to understand clients who do not share our identities. We have rich professional histories that have educated us, and we are dedicated to continuing education not at the expense of our clients’ time with us.

At North Node Clinic, you will be trusted as the foremost expert in your treatment needs, and we will work to be witness and ally to your experience and growth.
