About Me

Hey, 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 couple and therapist, with the couple leading the way. I am skillful in many treatment modalities, such as Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Imago Therapy & the importance of effective communication in helping couples learn about themselves and one another to improve their relationship.

I look forward to helping you and your partner improve your relationship.

She listens to both sides and doesn't make anyone feel alienated.

Exceptional!!! I was nervous to start counseling and wasn't even sure my partner and I would agree on a counselor but we both love Lori! She is patient, honest, and kind. We both feel heard, understand, and that she is never bias. We couldn't of picked anyone better, thank you Regain!!
