A Team Approach to Treatment

March 18th Third Annual VFED Luncheon | Sportsmen Lodge in Studio City

A dietitian without a scale and a therapist who collaborates with a dietitian. Together they make a great difference in the lives of their patients.

Over a delicious and elegant luncheon, Aaron Flores, RDN and Lindsey Budd, LMFT treated VFED members to a glimpse of the work they do. After elucidating the concepts of Health at Every Size and Intuitive Eating, they relayed a moving and encouraging case study about a client who struggles with Compulsive Overeating.

Aaron knows the importance of relationship building and values it over the continual measurement of progress using numbers. Lindsey knows to include significant family members throughout her treatment of an individual. Both of these skills helped to guide the family in support of their loved one while simultaneously contributed to that vital alliance that is so often the magic in a successful therapy.

Their combined patience, compassion, intelligence, and great sense of humor helped us to feel confident in our work as well, when we meet the challenge of healing the Compulsive Overeater.

Thank you to both Aaron and Lindsey and to all who attended, making this a wonderful day of ED education in the Valleys surrounding Los Angeles.
