Dr. Alexandra Morris is a clinical psychologist licensed to practice in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. She graduated from New York University with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Sociology.  She received a Master of Arts in Psychology and Education from Columbia University. She completed an APA accredited internship at Hutchings Psychiatric Center in the Child and Adolescent Track.  She received a subsequent Master of Science and Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. Her past research focused on the relationship between personality, relationship satisfaction, cognitive distortion, and various internet mediums, such as Facebook, Twitter, and pornography.

Dr. Morris was intensively trained in both inpatient and outpatient settings using evidence-based treatment and assessment to address a wide range of internalizing and externalizing disorders in children, adolescents, and adults.  She specializes in Dialectic Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Parent Management Training (PMT), and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP). Her current clinical areas of interest are OCD, anxiety disorders and co-occurring conditions, mood disorders, and comorbid medical issues in children, teens, and college students. Her mission in private practice is to help college students navigate young adulthood and children and adolescents overcome emotional and behavioral challenges.

Dr. Morris has an active and direct therapeutic style, which can be described more like coaching than traditional psychotherapy. She likes to infuse humor and irreverence throughout her work, disarming her clients and keeping the difficult process of confronting one’s issues as engaging and interesting as possible. Her approach is evidence-based and oriented towards problem-solving to increase motivation and reduce barriers that keep clients stuck and miserable in ineffective patterns in their lives and relationships. 

When not in session, Dr. Morris enjoys spending time with her dogs. She has also been known to spend too much time at the beach collecting seashells, crossing things off her bucket list, and a variety of other misadventures.
