Notes:

Got this from my sister-in-law a couple years ago in TN. Best in indirect light (tried outside and some of it died off)
No idea what it is and how to care for so it doesn’t overtake

    I can’t see those small leaves clear enough to be certain. Does it produce a white latex sap when a stem or leaf is broken off? If it does, then maybe pencil cactus (Euphorbia tirucalli)?. It looks top heavy. You can trim back to a neater & manageable size. Also growing it indoor might causing it to etiolate. If this isn’t pencil cactus, please resubmit with closeup of it leaves & the trunk. For now check out the included link for more information. Click on images to enlarge. Best wishes!
