These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Jose Centeno. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

I didn't know what to expect from therapy or during a therapy session. Dr. Centano has been welcoming and encouraging from day one. I look forward to our session each week and appreciate the honest and judgement free way he helps me identify and address what I need to, in order to move forward in a positive way.

I feel like I got very fortunate having an amazing therapist like Dr. Centeno. My time spent with him was around 4 session and within those 4 sessions, I believe I was able to extract an immense amount of value that has helped me grow in such a short time.

He is an awesome, kind, insightful, and funny therapist + human being.

Thank you. Bless you homie.
