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 provides in-person and online counseling in California for those wanting to recover from disordered eating and body shame.
Kindful Body is a collaboration of experienced eating disorder clinicians dedicated to providing compassionate, trauma-informed care. We provide in-person and online therapy in California. 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. Our 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®.
