Gellaine Rabino, LPCC, ATR-BC (she/her)

Gellaine (Jeh-lane) is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and board certified Art Therapist who centers her work through creativity and authentic connections with her clients.  In addition to talking, therapy with Gellaine is a dynamic collaborative process.  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.

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 art as a mental health tool.  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.

Gellaine comes to Wellspring with 11 years of experience assisting numerous families through parent coaching, case management, individual and group therapy.  She is energetic and passionate about working with children and families experiencing anxiety, sensory and emotional regulation issues, potty training, life transitions, increasing self-esteem, and shifting trauma.  Gellaine is most enthusiastic about providing BIPOC advocacy in mental health, socialization groups to younger children, and further advancing art and creative expression as part of healing.

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