Lauren Licatesi, MS, RD, is a registered dietitian who specializes in anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, avoidant restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID), as well as disordered eating and orthorexia. Lauren has a special interest in the microbiome and nutrition for gut health. In addition, she has much experience personally and professionally using nutrition and supplementation to alleviate migraines and inflammation.


While Lauren began her career in fashion, she has always been passionate about using food as medicine. Her respect for nutrition and supplementation was solidified when Lauren experienced the healing abilities of food combined with breath work meditation known as Kundalini yoga. This personal transformation guided Lauren’s decision to change her career, return to university and become a RD .


Lauren graduated from the Pennsylvania State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications. She graduated from the first cohort of Long Island University’s Nutrition and Dietetics accredited Integrated Program (ACEND) where she received her Master of Science in Nutrition and completed her dietetic internship. Throughout her dietetic internship, she gained extensive clinical experience at NYU Langone Hospital providing medical nutrition therapy to adults and children with a wide range of disease states. In addition, Lauren also acquired clinical experience at Northwell Cohen Children’s Hospital in their Eating Disorder program, working with children and adolescents on the importance of food and body image in nutrition group sessions.


Lauren joined LCWNS with mission of helping all individuals facing feeding and eating challenges. Lauren works with all age groups hoping to empower client and their families to create a positive relationship with eating and a neutral relationship with food and exercise.
