About Me

Working with teens is my passion! I love working with this population; I relate well to teens, and I have great therapeutic outcomes with them. I have over 30 years of experience working with pregnant and parenting teens; sexually active teens; runaway teens; homeless teens; chroncially truant teens; depressed and anxious teens; parent/teen conflict; overweight teens; teens who are being bullied; fearful and anxious teens; teens who are leaving for college; teens trying to assert their independence and separate from parents. In other words, I have treated the full spectrum of teenage problems and issues. Nothing shocks me. Nothing surprises me. I can relate to it all.

I am the founder of my own nonprofit organization that provides services to teens. My organization provides services to middle and high school girls in a very poor city in New Jersey. Because of my passion and the experience that I bring to this arena, my girls seek me out for counseling and advice. I want to be the person you seek out when you need intervention as well. Call on me! I am your ally.

Educationally, I have a masters degree in clinical social work from Boston College, a masters degree in public health in the area of maternal and child health, and a licensed clinical social worker in the state of New Jersey.

Counselor Leslie really helped in the last few months with my issues. She is very considerate and made me feel comfortable from day one. Her advice has always turned out to be helpful . I would definitely recommend her to other people looking for a counselor.

Leslie is an amazing counselor. Although this is a business, she actually cares. She doesn’t share what we WANT to hear. She shares the right advice even if it is hard to swallow. She can see right through my personality more than I can sometimes and I’m so grateful to have her as my counselor. She has been playing a pivotal role in my life. She is honest and has a commendable standard of integrity. She has been giving me a good perspective of looking at things and I’m embracing it. She does not have the sessions just for the sake of it. There is always an action plan. She also goes back to her notes and if she analyses and sees something else that she may have uncovered about our conversation, she will message me about it along with helpful articles . She is very dedicated and hard working. I have a lot of respect for her. Trust me, I would not share all this if I did not mean it.

Leslie Morris is an incredibly helpful guide when it comes to marital issues. She helped us get to the heart of the matter in a constructive manner that helped us heal. After each session, we walked away with tangible actionable strategies to better communicate with one another and to work through our issues. Without having seen her, we don't know what our relationship would look like today. You can always expect honest, direct, and objective feedback no matter the context. We would recommend Leslie to any couple who seeks to better understand one another and to love each other better each day.

I’m so glad that I was matched with Ms. Leslie. She’s such a sweet, caring, and understanding person. She’s very honest and will tell you what you need to hear and not what you want to hear, which is what I respect about her the most.

The teen counseling platform is extremely convenient for my wife and myself who have extremely busy careers and children. On top of this convenience we have found an attentive, thoughtful and supportive therapist in Leslie Morris. I would recommend this platform to any active professionals such as my wife and myself.

Leslie is amazing. Just a few weeks and she has helped me so much. I can't thank her enough. I leave our sessions feeling inspired, confident, and motivated. I am a first-time mom overcoming PPD and this has allowed me to take care of my baby work full time and work on becoming a better me!
