Gellaine Rabino, ATR, APCC

Gellaine (Je-lane) is a credentialed art therapist and Associate Professional Clinical Counselor who centers her work through creativity and authentic connections with her clients.  Using art therapy, play therapy, movement, and a strengths based approach, she encourages clients to use their imaginations and curiosity to explore struggles and concerns.  She is energetic and passionate about working with children and families.

Gellaine has always valued self-expression and art as a creative outlet.  She provided breakdancing and street art workshops to younger children starting in high school.  This early experience led her to pursue her education in using art as a tool for healing.  She received her B.A. in Art History and Studio Art from Humboldt State University.  Gellaine then received her Masters in Art Therapy from New York University.  For the last 4 years, prior to joining the Wellspring team, Gellaine was a School Counselor at a preschool in San Francisco.  She supported numerous families through parent coaching, case management, individual and group therapy.  She has experience supporting children, adolescents, and adults with anxiety, trauma, sensory regulation issues, depression, self-esteem, and experiencing homelessness.  As a registered art therapist (ATR), Gellaine is most enthusiastic about providing socialization groups to younger children to develop friendship skills using art incorporated with CBT based mindfulness exercises to foster insight, trust, and appropriate peer interactions.

Gellaine enjoys creating art, movement, gardening, cuddles with her dogs, and quality time with family.
