He's a rockstar. I don't know if I would still be in the fight to save my marriage if it wasn't for Chris and his support. He's accepting and really gives a care about his patients. I don't have to be shy in front of him about my lgbtq stuff and I cannot state how much he's made a difference for me since I've been with him and betterhelp.

Two sessions in and I'm already starting to see the results I was hoping for and, with that said and stood on, I would highly recommend Christopher Stewart to anyone as a therapist. He's warm, easy to talk to, and listens until it's time to correct a behavior or mentality which I feel is essential. It's important for a therapist to know when you need help and when you need guidance and that's what makes him so effective and worthy of this ringing endorsement.

Doing therapy for the first time is a new experience for me. Christopher made me feel comfortable speaking to him and he was very understanding and gives me feedback on my journal entries and helps me understand what I am going through. I would recommend Christopher to anyone because he is very knowledgeable and respectful

Always there to understand and make me understand where I'm going in my therapy. He gives me tools I need to apply in my day to day. Happy to have session with him. I don't feel I'm losing my time not moving forward on my path to resolve my problems.
