My Approach to Helping
Marcella Cox is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist specializing in treating eating disorders in the San Francisco Bay Area and is the Founder and Clinical Director of Kindful Body. Kindful Body is a collaboration of experienced eating disorder clinicians dedicated to providing compassionate, trauma-informed care. We provide in-person and online counseling in California for those wanting to recover from disordered eating and body shame.
Our mission at Kindful Body is to help clients heal the parts of themselves that keep them stuck in their disordered eating behaviors, so they can make the changes they desire to live with more balance, authenticity, and ease.
To fulfill our mission, we believe it is essential to address behavioral change as well as underlying issues. Overcoming these struggles can provide opportunities for growth and to discover new strengths. Learning to be more self-compassionate is key for recovery, as well as for mental health and well-being.
Helping improve the quality of our clients’ relationships with themselves and others ultimately improves the quality of their lives. Kindful Body's non-pathologizing, integrative approach is informed by Internal Family Systems (IFS), Mindful Self-Compassion, Brené Brown’s Shame Resilience Theory, Intuitive Eating, and Health At Every Size®
More Info About My Practice
We help adults transform their relationships with food and their body so they can live happy, healthy lives.
Food and movement are all around us and our bodies need both to survive. But you know what it feels like to have a simple candy bowl ruin your day and completely steal your focus. Your day can be awesome or terrible based on the number you see on the scale. We get it.
Whether you are an emotional eater, struggle to love your body, or have an eating disorder, we can help.
We know it can be difficult to find an eating disorder therapist near you that can work within your life and your schedule. We offer secure online counseling sessions with trained eating disorder specialists throughout California.
