Become a VFED Professional today
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.
