MARCELLA COX, LMFT
Counseling, Online support and workshops for eating & body-image issues, trauma, and relationship issues
Welcome: You've come to the right place
If you are here, you most likely are growing weary of feeling like you don't quite measure up.
You know from experience that diets don't work, and you realize that rigid exercise programs provide just a temporary fix, like a band-aid, to cover feelings of inadequacy.
To top it off, your constant mental chatter about your perceived shortcomings and your food and exercise behaviors are taking a heavy toll on you, your family, friendships, health and well-being.
A part of you longs to make peace with yourself, but you just don't know what to do to break this patten of beating yourself up.
Don’t despair—you don’t have to do this alone!
Working together, we can begin a process that can heal your relationship with food, your body and yourself so you can live your life with greater ease and joy.
I specialize in working with adults and adolescents who are suffering with:
- eating disorders (Anorexia, Bulimia and Binge Eating Disorder)
- disordered eating (Orthorexia, chronic dieting, and emotional eating)
- body image dissatisfaction
- problems with excessive or insufficient exercise
- self-image issues including underlying anxiety, shame and unresolved trauma
- relationship issues
What SHOULD I expect?
You will be supported to address your specific issues with the goal of resolving past wounds and developing internal resources to cope with life's adversities.
My therapeutic approach and expertise will guide you through a transformative process to discover self-compassion, self-acceptance, self-confidence, and a wholehearted way of living.
Often, this work leads to new perspectives on difficult issues, allows for hope to arise, enables you to take back control of your life, and ultimately contributes to more positive experiences in your life.
You can continue to be stuck in the daily battle against yourself…
…you can take your next step towards healing and loving yourself.
There is hope — full recovery is possible.
