"Surviving the Holidays When Your Loved One Is Addicted" is a fantastic and supportive webinar led by communication expert and therapist Michelle Farris, LMFT. The information provided will help families create happier and healthier holidays, and the tools and tips are shared in an easy to follow, step-by-step outline. I love that Michelle goes over specific ways to deal with a difficult family member, teaches on how to set boundaries, and provides a road map for self care. As a therapist, I plan on sharing this resource in my professional practice, and will be passing along this information to my own friends and family members.

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.
