Hello, , I am Lori Centineo, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of New York. I earned my Master of Social Work degree at The University of Albany and have been practicing for the past five years. Prior to being a social worker, I was an elementary school teacher. While I enjoyed the teaching profession very much, my desire to help others in a more direct manner lead me to return to school, to begin a new career and chapter in my life. Since beginning my practice, I have had success working with adults, children, families and couples in outpatient settings to address issues related to depression, anxiety, grief, anger, family dynamics, trauma and transitions.
My warm, friendly and empathetic approach fosters an environment where clients feel accepted and safe, clearing the way for the development of therapeutic relationship that is key to success in therapy. I see therapy as a team approach between the client and the therapist, with the client leading the way, as each client is the real expert his/her life. I am skillful in many treatment modalities, such as Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Mindfulness and Emotion Focused Therapy. I personalize my approach with each client, contingent on his or her needs, skills and persona.
I look forward to beginning your therapeutic journey with you.

Only knowing Lori a short time I’m extremely comfortable with our sessions
Lori is great! I feel safe to talk to her.
Lori is a smart and calming presence during our weekly meetings. She is helpful and a naturally wonderful listener. It's been a great experience so far and I look forward to continuing to talk to her.
Lori is a compassionate and knowledgeable therapist her kindness and empathy is second only to her professionalism. What a great experience being expressing distress in a safe space and leaving with solutions that impact my everyday life.
Lori is warm, receptive, and a skilled listener. She gently helps me dissect the roots of my thoughts and repair my faulty beliefs.
Lori has been nothing short of astounding. i’ve been struggling with anxiety, depression, and some trauma for my whole life, and Lori has helped me delve to find the root causes for my feelings. She takes things slow, and at the pace at which I feel comfortable, and really, although she’s asking questions, she leaves me in control of the conversation. i don’t think i’ve yet to leave a session not laughing with her. i went into this really scared - my first time with online therapy and only the second time IN therapy - but it was the best decision i ever made. betterhelp is amazing, lori is amazing, and for the first time i. my life, i feel amazing.
Lori is amazing. It’s only been my third time meeting with her and I haven’t felt this relief in such a long time. She listens, and gives great advice.
Lori is really great. We have just started to get to know each other but she has shown her compassion and insight already.
Lori is amazing! She's very kind and gives the BEST advice when it comes to anxiety. She is also very flexible when it comes to scheduling and is a great listener. I highly recommend her!
Lori is sincere and positive. NOT judgemental. I feel like we've known each other forever because she's so easy to talk to!! She's the best!
Lori is a great counselor. I feel comfortable with her guidance. She understands my concerns and is able to ask me deeper questions and offer suggestions that helps give me a new perspective and find answers within myself.
Lori is so so sweet and a great listener. She has a good sense of humor while also being able to be extremely empathetic and understanding. She hears and relates to my issues and we are working together to overcome them in a positive, encouraging way. I would definitely recommend her.
Lori has been so helpful to me with understanding things going on in my life. She listens and understands me. I’ve been to several counselors in my life and no one has understood me or helped me as much as she has. I can’t say enough great things about her!
Excellent listener, courteous, calm, and understands what tools and methods are needed to help the patient.
She was very helpful and understanding. I felt very comfortable telling her how I was feeling without worrying about being judged.
