Dr. Lori Baudino Expert Child Psychologist.jpg

Dr. Baudino’s approach to parent + child therapy is an integrative approach. It’s not one size fits all, but rather tailored to your family’s preferences and needs.

Dr. Baudino’s mind + body focus includes Dance/Movement Therapy, which encompasses the “whole” child, more than just verbal communication, movement is a universal way to relate that helps children connect and learn.



I have been a clinician practicing for over 20 years. I received my doctorate in Clinical Psychology and Masters in Creative Arts Therapy – Dance/Movement Therapy, the therapeutic use of movement to further the emotional, cognitive, physical, and social integration of the individual.

As the National Clinical Spokesperson for The Andréa Rizzo Foundation, and with their sole funding, I brought and implemented the first Dance/Movement Therapy Programs to the top Pediatric hospitals in Los Angeles, where I provide bedside therapy to medically fragile children with cancer and special needs. I have worked in psychiatric hospitals and rehabilitation centers for trauma, addiction, and pain management. I also coordinate Behavior Intervention Programs within the home/school setting and I specialize in supervising, facilitating, and providing treatment for children with special needs and their families.

In my private practice, I work with children and their families, to support the developing child and the integral relationships between parent, child, and siblings. Understanding the premise that the body, mind, and spirit are interconnected and that life is experienced through movement – my approach allows the child to express their feelings, experiences, and ideas, with their whole body as each child is supported in the capability to put their words into action. I understand individual sensory and motor preferences, model ways to express emotional needs, and support overall integration and well-being.
