Michelle Farris, licensed psychotherapist, relationship and anger specialist

Hi! I'm a licensed marriage and family therapist and I love helping people heal their relationships. I consider myself someone who “walks my talk” because I know what it's like to struggle with people pleasing and have lop-sided relationships - but I also know what it takes to create healthier and happier relationships. My practice is located in San Jose, California where I work with individuals and couples but I also offer online courses for additional support.
