Tom has a lot of experience in a number of areas of life. I have appreciated being able to go over a range of lifes difficulties without feeling like I would need to meet with multiple to get the support I need for different things. His communication and listening skills are unmatched to 5 other counselors I've had within a 15 year range. He has a great deal of empathy and understanding and is very easy to talk to. He's had a number of helpful suggestions that have not left me feeling pushed in any direction. He is dilligent about communicating and accomodating schedule changes. I would 100% reccomend Tom to a friend/stranger and anyone in between.

I was apprehensive using an app to find a therapist for my needs. The match with Tom Stewart was better than I expected. I was very pleased with his wealth of knowledge and guidance. I recommend giving the app a try if you are considering seeing a therapist.

I definitely recommend Tom as a therapist. He not only was extremely friendly and made me feel comfortable but also validated my experiences and made me feel heard. He also goes the extra mile to ensure that any issues I have are addressed and fully accounted for. He's also a wonderful storyteller :) I can't thank him enough for his wisdom and patience.

Thomas is a wonderful therapist that listens to you and gives very reasonable feedback. He has a lot of experience with sexual assault and learning disorders which have been very helpful

Thomas is a great listener and makes really solid suggestions on how to move forward through situations.

Written by A.R. on Dec 10, 2021 after therapy with Thomas for 7 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety

I was going through some emotional problems all alone is a new and completely different country than my home country. Thomas helped me and supported me to overcome the problem. It is already very overwhelming to move to a new country and with the problems that I was facing, it was very taxing emotionally. However, Thomas was very patient and kind and understood my problems. Sessions with him helped me get back on track again.

Thomas has been extremely helpful with the dialogue we share during our sessions. It has given me immense hope that I can get through the things I’ve been struggling with. I would highly recommend his services

Tom is definitely the No.1 counselor in my opinion. Tom helped me realize what the real underlying problem was in such a safe and peaceful way. He was very open and kind while listening in a friend-like manner. The sessions weren't a one-way communication as I thought it would be. It's not just about speaking out about your problems and him providing the solution, that is. He really stands next to you at your level to just provide the tools and needed guidance so that you can "walk out the woods". With his help, I am myself again. I would strongly recommend him to anyone who is lost or needs someone to talk to.

Thomas Stewart has been very helpful.

We appreciate his careful understanding of our family dynamics. Also, his appreciation of the difficulties patenting children in the pandemic public school system.

We’re working as a family to stay strong and engage/spend time together in the most positive ways.

I'd 100% recommend Thomas to friends if it didn't mean we then had the same counselor. But a 5 star review for anyone else wondering!

Work with me!
