Dear ED Professional:
Welcome to the Valley Federation of Eating Disorder Professionals Website.
If Eating Disorders Treatment is what you love to do, and if you work with patients in one of our beautiful Valleys surrounding Los Angeles, this has been your networking group for some time. Through this website, patients who need you have a way to find you.
Clients in the San Fernando Valley and all other valleys surrounding Los Angeles have long sought this Coordinated Data Base for Therapists, RD’s, MD’s, and allied treatment professionals from various backgrounds and philosophies.
VFED exists because our best work is collaborative, more effective, and more fulfilling when we come together. Challenges are inevitable in this specialty and we need support from those who “get it.” VFEDpros is also a place where we celebrate our successes together.

Annual Fancy Spring Luncheon
Each Spring we sit down together in a beautiful formal setting to explore the latest issues in Eating Disorder Treatment. Past speakers have brought us topics such as Binge Eating Disorder, Motivational Interviewing, and 2017's The Vicious Cycle of Weight Stigma and Dieting. In 2020 Carolyn Costin spoke with us and helped us all gain a little more appreciation of the complexities of our work together. Last year, because of the circumstances gripping our world, the event was over video, but was just as mighty! We had three wonderful professionals sharing their knowledge with us and ending in a wonderful restorative yoga practice. Once you join as a paid member, there will be no fee for the event.
We are hopeful that this April we will be able to have our Spring Luncheon in-person at an outdoor venue - we will keep you posted.
The Table Talk
For the past several years, our monthly Table Talk experiences have generated considerable enthusiasm. This past year, was chanllenging. After our spectacular lucky timing of our Fancy Spring Lunchon with Carolyn Costin, we had to go to Zoom for our Table Talks. We had Aaron Flores, RD Host a "Health at Every Size® Open Conversation," in May. In April Celiza Flores, PsyD helped us find the "Existential Gifts of Quarantine". Later in the year, Natalie Katz MPH, RDN, and Alyssa Callahan, MS RDN gave us "Body Image Talk. The Center of the Problem".
With a VFEDpros Paid Membership, you will now be able to attend Table Talks at no fee. The cost to attend a Table Talk for non-members is $10, which includes one CE. And, if you are unable to attend, members have access to our video library of past Table Talks (thank you pandemic Zoom).
