Michelle Farris, LMFT
I help people struggling in their relationships.
I didn't know how to communicate my needs or handle stress. Like a lot of people, I avoided conflict. I became a psychotherapist after my own work gave me the tools to improve my relationships and enjoy life. I learned how to communicate effectively and was amazed at what a difference that made.
Feeling accepted and supported by others changed my life and that's what I want for you.
In 1997, I got my Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology at the College of Notre Dame, Belmont. After counseling people for five years, I took time off to raise my son. I believe that when we work on ourselves, we become better parents!
I've helped people in 12 step recovery for many years. I can help if you are questioning your drinking, in substance abuse recovery, struggle with anger management, compulsive overeating, codependency, depression, relationships, grief, divorce and co-parenting.
Growth is a challenging, rewarding process when you start to see yourself change. I've seen people get excited about life again as they practice new skills and their perspective improves. We can only change ourselves and accept the things we cannot control because that is where you'll find peace.
