Hello, Life is about moving forward and growing. As individuals we should continue to grow and never stop learning.
I work with individuals of all ages including families and couples in need. I work successfully with a wide range of concerns including, Motivation, Lifestyle changes, ADHD, Anxiety, Depression as well as the many other Life struggles that need Professional and Confidential Attention (assistance).
I am very familiar with drug and alcohol addictions, and feel that I can be of help in this area. As well I work with the LGBT population and am an active proponent for their lifestyle and struggles.
I am a member of the Kentucky Counseling Association and American Psychological Association.
I joined a private practice in Northern Kentucky that I have been with for the last eight years after working several years with a State agency. I have a Masterâ€™s degree in Professional Counseling and I am presently earning a PhD in General Psychology.
A bit more about myself;
My counseling style is based on The Carl Roger's idea of unconditional positive regard. In simple terms; for a person to â€œgrowâ€ they need an environment of genuine openness and self-disclosure with total and unconditional acceptance. Therefore with full empathy I will inquire and interact respectfully to fully understand your specific situation.
When appropriate I also use ideas based on Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) which include: Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Interpersonal Effectiveness and Emotional Regulation.
I am very eclectic and interactive with my clients. My counseling is based in The Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) model. To make life changes or improve our situational wellbeing we must likewise change our mental thought processâ€¦I can help you understand this process.
I am here to help you; with your goals challenges or struggles.
Thank you for looking at my profile and good Karma to You.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Self esteem
I also have experience in Addictions, LGBT, Family, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Eating, Sleeping, Parenting, Anger, Career, Bipolar

I feel like I’m getting an incredible service by getting to work with Cindi. I’m grateful that she’s able to work with me over chat and I’ve gotten a response within 24 hours every time even when I was writing every day. I feel confident that she’s understanding me because she’s able to read between the lines and see the big picture and help me see it too. I also appreciate her honesty. After my vent about how life’s hard I expected a response similar to my friends and family, i.e. you’re doing your best, it’s not your fault, etc., Cindi did an amazing thing and showed me how I’m really blowing things out of proportion and reminding me that life happens. She explained it in a way that I could understand through the panic. I appreciate her worksheets and her messages always give me something to think on. I have lots of people in my life to coddle me when I’m being a baby and If Cindi had done so I would have felt better in the moment but it wouldn’t have fixed anything. I feel like she’s the kind of friend who is knowledgeable and knows how to give it to me straight in a way that’s easy to understand and accept. This is the most comfortable and honest I’ve been with a therapist (I've seen a few). I feel like the improvement I’ve felt thanks to Cindi was 100% worth the price of my subscription. No matter how much I ramble she can pick up on the key issue and help me address it.
I meant to subscribe for one month during a particularly stressful time (wedding planning) but I realized there’s a lot of issues that I’ve been putting on the back-burner that I I want to work out. My improvement gives me a se we of comfort that I don’t need regular therapy for life but I can always subscribe for a few months here and there whenever life gets a little too hard or I feel myself needing a reality check. I plan on recommending this service to several family members who I know struggle with similar problems.
Cindi Stewart is a fantastic counselor, who really cares about helping people! I would definitely recommend her! Better help is really great too! It makes counseling more accessible!
I am very glad I was matched with Cindi Stewart.
Cindi made me feel very heard, understood and supported. She personalizes the advice that she gives very well, and is very knowledgeable. I have learned so much over the past few weeks of conversing regularly with her, and it's felt really good to have an objective perspective about my personal issues.
Understanding caring and kind.
Highly recommended Cindi! She is knowledgeable, understanding, and committed to helping me with my issues. Excellent therapist!
Feels good talking to someone who is curious about you.
I have been coming back to BetterHelp with the same counsellor even requesting to have her back she is so good at what she does.
Cindi made me progress and address issues in a very efficient and trusting way. I have never felt understood as well as she's listened to me and was responding very quickly. This is one of the most effective therapy I've been through.
She is great.
I completely love her, she showed me understanding and ratio behind my thoughts, comforted me and led me to focus on my happiness and self appreciation. She even answers very quickly. Absolutely the best!
Cindi's been pretty helpful in dealing with my mental health issues. I was finding it hard to get a good, english speaking counselor in my current situation, so going online worked out in the end. She seems very qualified and capable - it took a little while for us to iron out what needed doing, but the almost daily messages have helped me stay more focused and on track than with previous therapists. Even if it's just someone to vent my problems to, she gives good advice in a timely manner.
Cindi is amazing! She is easy to talk to, very informative and helpful! I was skeptical about using BetterHelp at first but I've been pleasantly surprised. Thanks to Cindi, I am working on making some changes to improve my life. She is a very patient and caring counselor and I'm so glad I was matched with her!
I have been talking with Cindi for a couple of weeks and in that time she has helped me enormously. Cindi has helped me to come to terms with my anxiety and not let it beat me. I am in a better place now and it’s because of her help and guidance.
Only had a few interactions so far. Going well though!
Cindi's been really great! I have been dealing with a lot of different issues and Cindi's been patient and understanding with all of them. She offers some great advice and always gives me a sense of reassurance that there's nothing wrong with me. Finding BetterHelp and being matched with Cindi has definitely changed my life in a positive way!
Cindi is good for me. I would recommend her to anyone that needed to talk to someone. She makes you think about things and asks questions for you to dig deeper and try to figure things out.
Cindi is such a lovely and friendly lady. I was super happy to be able to open up to her and she didn’t make me feel like I was wasting her time like I thought I would’ve felt. She really does care and wants to help you in anyway that she can. You open up to her and she can help you see your thinking and offer help to how to correct problem areas
I haven't had much interaction with Cindi but what I've had has been helpful to say the least. She's easy to speak with and gives advice in a very non-judgmental sort of way.
She helped me with everything I needed. She is an amazing counselor.
Cindi is fantastic and has helped me figure out a lot of non-judgemental, practical solutions to my situation and issues.
Cindi's been very helpful and supportive while maintaining her path of advice that she feels will help me (and other parties that are involved with my situation) cope and adapt even if I have tendencies to drag myself back towards the dark. Cindi's been able to gently nudge me back on the right track.
Cindi has been a true blessing in my life. My life has transformed in so many ways that I wouldn't have believed possible a few short months ago. I'm forever grateful!
I have tried counseling in the past and this is the first time it is actually working! Being able to sit and type my thoughts out and not feel like I have to rush because my hour is almost up is great! Cindi really understands people and she's not afraid to share some about herself and life experiences so it's not a one-sided conversation. She is also very accommodating to crazy life schedules and really takes the time to follow through and check on her members. It feels great to know that there is someone who cares about you even when you're not in a session.
She is great and informative. She is very supportive and I have recommended her to colleagues of mine.
She's very maternal. I love her!
An inner-life changing experience. Soft yet valuable guidance along thorny paths in life.
After searching for so long for the right counselor, I have finally found Cindi who is the perfect match for me. She is extremely knowledgeable and provides great tips and strategies with succinct explanation behind each one. Cindi is very understanding of your concerns and problems and responds in a timely manner. Thank you BetterHelp for proving this convenient service at an affordable rate.
Cindi has given me a safe place to explore my emotions. Her replies come quickly and include great advice and tips.
Thorough, caring, and diligent! Cindi's natural, non-invasive approach has brought out so much in me, and helped me work through some pretty rough patches. I've come to a much better understanding of myself. Thanks Cindi.
Cindi is extremely supportive, understanding, and generous with her time. She is offering me skills and strategies to deal with my concerns, and is a great sounding board. I struggle with having availability for traditional office visits, so this has been a great way to get around that. I would recommend Cindi to others looking for help and support on their mental health journeys.
Cindi has been a lifeline for me. She has helped me so much in getting through one of the most painful times in my life. I don't know how I could have managed without her understanding, advice and support, and helping me see things "outside myself" when I get too lost in my feelings and thoughts.
I have been finding speaking with Cindi, a very helpful way to speak my mind and resolve the issues that I have been having. She respects my privacy and has been helping me with real ways of dealing with the situations. I thank BetterHelp too, for creating a platform for people like me to confidentially share our lives with counselors, and seek out a support system.
Cindi has been very helpful and compassionate to me, and has given me great advice. I appreciate my communication with her, even if it was for a short time while I was looking for a new local therapist.
Cindi is a very nice and lovely person. I had no trouble connecting with her and I feel like she's always there not only because it's her job, but because she truly cares for me and her patients. Truly an amazing person and counselor!
Cindi really turned my life around. I felt stuck in my existence and Mrs. Stewart patiently walked me through the minefield to being closer to a human being than I thought was possible.
Even if I have not met Cindi personally, I really feel that I can rely on her better-help for all the issues I am currently experiencing. I have been on therapy before and it never happen that the therapist understood my moods and gave answers to my behaviors as much as Cindi did.
I am very happy with her kind answers, her practices suggestion and her constance in answering.
Cindi has been extremely attentive, kind and empathetic. It has been really great having a person I don't know provide objective feedback. She is also suggesting steps forward. Cindi has reminded me how to take back the control through reflection my with her.
CIndi has been more the helpful. The way she can explained and related to certain situations is nice and the compassion and understanding of what you are going through was refreshing. No judgement, and no pushing in to what you should do but there to assist you in what you choose to do the best she can.
Starting counseling with BetterHelp, I thought this would probably be a waste, but honestly it's been great with Cindi so far. I have some ways to go, but now I feel like I'm not just fumbling blindly in the dark but actually taking control of my journey, wherever it may lead me.
I heard about this app through a friend and I was skeptical at first. But Cindi has been very attentive and patient. She is a good listener and I get the feeling she likes what she does because of how she does it.
Cindi is amazing...I got way more than I even bargained for when signing up with her.
Cindi has been very helpful and insightful. Her advice has been very useful and she's offered me a lot of good perspective on my life, and good tips for improving myself. I plan to remain working with her as my therapist indefinitely. I highly recommend her.
Cindi has been hugely helpful. Discussing things over email, rather than face to face, gives time for each point to sink in.
She's always there for you and will be ready guide you, no matter what. :)
A true professional, knows her work inside out. Very happy with the help I've received. I highly recommend Cindi Stewart.
Cindi is great! She is really down to earth, and candid. I find it so easy to talk to her, even about things I've had locked away for years. She adds a dash of humour where appropriate, and has a gentle way of presenting me with new ideas or thoughts for consideration. I'm so glad I was matched with her.
She is great. Very attentive and very understanding. She has good ideas and puts things to where I can understand.
Cindi makes me feel heard.
Cindi is very understanding and she helped me cope through my problems. I recommend her.
Cindi has been fantastic. I felt like I could trust her immediately and she really helped me evaluate my current situation. I am a therapist and I know what good therapists are supposed to do. She has done those things and more. I would recommend her to my most dear friends.
She is so wonderful and very helpful with things I talked to. She doesn't judge me for any mistake that I make. She would give me advice of what I need to do. She does help me heal the pains that I struggle with the most and she does help me to learn to love myself. She is so helpful.
Cindi has helped me through some really hard time. She taught me skills to handle situations and this has changed my life for the better. Online counseling is the best thing I started doing in years.
I'm enjoying working with Cindi. She's going out of her way to be kind though I can tell that being kind is easy for her.
Cindi has been so much help! I appreciate being able to process at any hour and know that I will get a response from Cindi quickly. She has been insightful and "right on the mark" with helping me get through some tough situations. I am so thankful for her.
Cindi has been so supportive and helpful in guiding me through a difficult time. My experience with Betterhelp is five stars because of the quality of care provided by Cindi Stewart.
In my personal experience, Cindi has given me the tools, information, and has been able to provide the insight that I need to help me progress in resolving my issues in a manner that I can process, understand and apply to my experiences. I can only describe it as "She is the Best!". Thank you Cindi.
Cindi is a very kind, caring and attentive therapist. She is non judgemental and does her very best to help. I receive a message from her at least once a day and am pleased how much time she devotes to her patients.
Cindi is wonderful. She has a great, positive voice and wonderful intuition that is clearly backed up by experience. I really enjoy her ability to push the boundaries of my thoughts and emotions and provide thoughtful insight to help me through my problems.
Cindi is wonderful! She really makes an effort to connect with you and make you feel comfortable. Her observations and recommendations are easy to understand and follow, and so far she has been the absolute best counselor for my mental and physical health!
Cindi is so insightful and kind. She has been a tremendous help to me in getting me to understand my issues, and so much quicker than I would have originally thought would be possible with this format!
I am so glad I was matched with Cindi Stewart as my counselor. I started to feel better almost immediately because she was very proactive and specific about how I might move forward. She makes me feel confident about trying new things to improve my life. She is extremely insightful and kind, and has made me feel truly heard and understood. I honestly feel that I have made more progress in a couple of weeks than I have made over months in the past with a traditional one-time-per-week therapist. I am very grateful to her for the help she has given me so far and I feel positive about the future I'll have with her help.
Cindi is amazing. She takes time even when she doesn't plan on working to write me back. I hear from her at least once a day but usually more. She seems to really care about what I'm going through.
Cindi is really helpful and insightful. She is very quick to respond and checks up on me to make sure I'm doing okay. She is easy to talk to, and understands exactly what I'm going through.
I have seen 4 counselors in person and have had 3 of them tell me after just a few sessions that they would be happy to continue working with me, but they did not feel they could help me. After just a few messages back and forth with Cindi Stewart she made some very interesting insights that really surprised me and were never anything close to anyobservations made by any of my others counselors
Cindi is inquisitive, encouraging, and very open minded about all sorts of things. She gently directs you to prioritize and fight through your issues. She offers an open, positive space in which to express yourself and concerns, even with the most complicated and sensitive of issues.
Cindi is a really amazing counselor. We've been only talking for a couple weeks but it really helps me through a lot of the problems. She makes me feel so much better even though I have problems with low self esteem. She never judges me and she always gives really specific and lengthy advice. She genuinely really cares and always checks up on me.
Cindi is very helpful and quick to respond. She is honest, and knows exactly how to speak to me.
Working with Cindi has been extremely helpful for me. She is very relatable, understanding, not judgmental and puts you at ease. Her demeanor was a determining factor in staying a BetterHelp.com customer and I would encourage anyone seeking counseling to give Cindi Stewart a try.
Cindi has been a very kind, funny, passionate, and thoughtful therapist who makes you feel open to her very easily. She's helped me to put a lot of my worries and anxieties into perspective.
Cindi Stewart is very knowledgeable and cares about her patients. You can tell very quickly her heart is in it. She explains things in ways that are easy to understand yet very thought provoking. I highly recommend her.
Cindi is great. I have been to many counseling sessions and I can say she is by far the best. She is quick to answer and is really concerned about her clients. She is also a great person.
Cindi is a very understanding counselor with a focus on addressing specific issues. She is kind, caring and able to give a gentle prod when necessary. I'm enjoying my time working with her and she has really helped me feel less anxious day-to-day.
I was pleased to find out about Better Help. I am on fixed income & can't afford $300 an hour. I believe in Karma & my guardian Angel. I am SO pleased with Cindi. She listens & understands. She doesn't make fun of my beliefs & helps guide me in them. She seems very down to Earth & can be funny. I feel comfortable telling her things I'd never tell anyone else. Thank you for choosing her for me, it's a good fit.
Cindi is very caring and open, the kind of person which whom you can discuss any problem. She offers helpful and creative steps to help one overcome difficulties. In a short time, I has come to trust her implicitly and value her counsel immensely.
