With locations in New York City, New York and Closter, New Jersey just outside of it, Laura Cipullo’s Lifestyle Lounge is the private practice of registered dietitian Laura Cipullo and her associates. Cipullo has more than 20 years of clinical experience as a dietitian and has written several books on nutrition and diabetes. Unlike some outpatient-based facilities treating eating disorders, Laura Cipullo’s Lifestyle Lounge does not offer standard therapy as such. Instead, she and her team provide an individualized suite of services including nutritional counseling, body image workshops and exercise classes. Both adults and adolescents are welcome to attend.
Treatment and Staff
Upon intake, all clients meet with staff members for an initial consultation to determine their needs. As an outpatient organization, detox and stabilization services are not provided on-site though referrals can be provided as necessary. Though each treatment plan varies, programs generally include both individual and group sessions covering a positive food and nutritional philosophy with a focus on mindful eating practices.
Other services offered include cooking classes, supervised meals and yoga sessions and retreats. As mentioned, the services provided are non-clinical and thus do not include dual diagnosis support or 12-step participation. Instead, the organization offers flexible consultations and individual sessions much like a sober coach would a recovering addict.
The staff at Laura Cipullo’s Lifestyle Lounge consists of registered dietitians, nutritionists, certified diabetes educators, administrative staff and additional Master’s-level clinicians.
Because all programs are individualized, clients can also opt for VIP packages at Bequia, the second largest island in the Grenadines, located in the Caribbean. During the four day trip, clients spend one-on-one time with Cipullo doing yoga, meditating, learning about nutrition and working with wellness coaches. Similarly, clients can also schedule follow-ups and check-ins to suit their schedules as a form of aftercare.
Overall, Laura Cipullo’s Lifestyle Lounge takes a primarily holistic approach to treating eating disorders with a focus on nutrition and exercise. All programs are individualized and include plenty of one-on-one time, nutritional education, mindfulness training and general wellness support. While those with co-occurring disorders, addictions or severe mental illnesses may want to seek out additional support, Laura Cipullo’s Lifestyle Lounge remains a convenient resource for those seeking nutritional education.
