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 with a Psychiatrist in Northern Kentucky that I had been with for the last 17 years until moving back home to Missouri 2 years ago. I was also employed for 10 years with a State agency. I have a Masters 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 grow 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 well being we must likewise change our mental thought process. 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.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Cynthia (Cindi) Stewart. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Cindi is a very understanding and compassionate person. She’s personable without crossing the line into too-friendly territory. Usually, we talk about whatever is on my mind. Sometimes when I don’t know what I’m feeling she’ll bring up a concern (that usually is still a problem) that I mentioned in our conversations before. Then we talk about it. Sometimes I cry. But I always feel better. It helps to just talk to someone who listens, cares for your well-being, and provides the tools you need to start feeling better.
I come from a background where we don’t talk about our problems. Mental health issues weren’t real issues and we didn’t seek medical help or therapy for issues that are “in your head”, so I was terrified to start seeing a therapist.
Cindi put all my worries at ease and helped me through some of the darkest times in my life. I couldn’t ask for a better therapist! I’m so glad I was paired with her when I signed up.
I’ve been seeing Cindi regularly again for the past few months, on and off since the fall of 2019.
Cindi is wonderful! She has very good insight and offers great support.
Cindi has been wonderful. She’s been patient getting to know me but also jumping right in to help me with a personal crisis. I really appreciate her gentleness and delivery.
Love Cindi to death. She has been nothing but supportive, gives me perspective, reassurance and has helped me in more ways than 1.
Cindi is nothing but great! She has improved my life in many ways.
There are so many things I have wanted to make adjustments to in my life, vicious cycles I wasn’t able to get out of, intrusive thoughts and anxiety I couldn’t shake. I have only been with Cindi for a few months, but I find myself more at peace with each passing week, as she gives me the tools and the clarity I was lacking before. I am truly grateful for her and the progress she has helped me make so far.
A great listener, understands where not only the parent is coming from but also the teen!
Cindi and I just started a week ago and I already feel confident that she can help me. Thank you.
Cindi is a wonderful, compassionate and understanding councellour!
She is the best one i have ever met!
She is really good listener and completely understands my situation!
Im very happy with Cindi!
Cindi is a great therapist. She is always open to listen and she makes the time for me.
It’s helpful to have an educated objective party, she listens very well and helps come up with very easy steps to solve complicated issues.
Really understanding and not judgemental
Very good therapist
Cindi has helped me understand myself and my life so much better. I really have grown comfortable talking to her and am so thankful for everything she has done & continues to do!
I have been in counseling with Cindi on and off for the past 3 years and she has helped me in so many ways. She is so knowledgeable and always helps me to pave the right path moving forward when I have been in difficult situations that life has thrown at me. She is always very kind, patient, professional and her level of concern for my wellbeing is genuine and so supportive. I couldn't ask for a better counselor. ¡
After going throw a mess of people who couldn’t care less or didn’t have bandwidth to talk to me on this service, Cindi is wonderfully attentive and incredibly knowledgeable. She shared her own history to help connect with my own. She listens and responds accordingly rather than just offering resources. I’m very happy with her.
I can’t thank Cindi enough for all the help she has given me. She listens, gives me support and ideas of how to handle situations. She has been a life saver for me.
Cindi has been an asset in my pursuit towards improving my mental health and I am grateful to her.
Cindy is a godsend. She is the best therapist I have ever had and she has helped me overcome so many things and makes me feel extremely supported in whichever challenge comes my way. I wish everyone could have a therapist like her!
Cindi is absolutely amazing. She helped me in so many ways and I am able to improved life for myself.
Cindi has helped me cope with life in a way I didn't know counselors could help - she is empathetic and knowledgable, and always validates my thoughts and feelings. I am so grateful to know her!
Cindi really helped me realize that a lot my issues are around me thinking so negatively of myself and has helped me improve that.
I LOVE Cindi. I hadn’t spoke to her in over a year and noticed she sent me messages to check up on me. She is the sweetest human being and that’s what makes her amazing at her job.
Cindi is a thoughtful and effective therapist. I did not know what to expect when I started this service but now I can't imagine not having her council as I navigate some challenging times. She helps keep me grounded and listens with compassion and intention which is very comforting. She helps me clear the fog and view things pragmatically which allows me to approach challenges with a stronger back bone. I highly recommend Cindi especially for anyone who is dealing with anxiety and uncertain times. Thank you Cindi!
Nobody has ever listened and understood me better then Dr. Cindi. She is professional and I admire her because she can help with new generation problems.
Cindi has been so incredibly helpful for me! She gives so many different ways to help you work through something, so you can find what works for you.
Cindi is great, she is kind, understanding and knowledgeable. I really trust what she suggests. I have found it really hard in the past to find the right counsellor and I am just very happy that I found Cindi!
I've been talking to Cindi for awhile now and honestly, I don't know what I would've done without her. She helps me work through a lot of my feelings and she gives me perspective I didn't think about on things that I'm having trouble dealing with. I've gone through a lot of personal and professional problems and changes in the last year and a half and without Cindi, I'm not sure I would've been able to handle everything. It's also just nice to have someone to talk to sometimes and she's there when I need her. I would highly recommend Cindi (or anyone on BetterHelp) if you need someone to talk to.
Cindi is the best!
I have been through a few counsellors and none of them have had the desire to understand like Cindi. She specializes in what I seek to learn more about, and she offers up resources tailored to my interests. I have make great progress with her and can't recommend this lovely woman enough.
Cindi has helped me more than any therapist, friend, or family member has been able to. I am forever grateful for what she has done for me.
Cindi is compassionate and knowledgeable. I have struggled with anxiety for years and working with her has finally helped me to control my anxious thoughts, and come up with strategies to help prevent them from occurring on the regular.
Has been wonderful experience and helpful
My first message to Cindy was very personal and very clear, going thru a horrible time in my life, her response was from someone that paid attention to me, cared about my problem and gave her very well put together response, reading her opinion and advice made me feel better and at the end of the day it’s the help you need, someone to listen to you and advices you in a great way.
Cindi is an incredible guide. With her help I have really noticed a change in my life and in my habits, I am so grateful for her guidance, patience, and listening.
Cindi has been consistently helpful - she’s been attentive to my needs, understanding of my problems, has given me advice which a worked, and been timely in her responses. I’d fully recommend her as a totally professional and qualified counsellor!
I can not express how much Cindi has helped me in the past few weeks that I have had her as my counsellor.
She’s helped me understand more about my conditions, helped me settle some things from my past, and has given me brilliant coping techniques that I will use in the future.
I’ve been to many many psychiatrists but no one has ever been as wise, caring or considerate as Cindi. She’s helped me realise things about myself that I have never known.
Cindi, if you ever read this, thank you so much for everything you do. You’re amazing.
My experience with Cindi has been 100% positive, and I would highly recommended her to anyone who needs support. She has been extremely responsive and professional, and has provided very useful feedback, support, suggestions, and tools in order for me to move forward. I am very grateful for her help in this time of my life and again would recommend her in a heartbeat.
Cindi is amazing, professional, kind and always open to listening and provides numerous forms of advice.
Cindi is my first and only confident in my whole life, she helps me to be more confident, to know my thoughts, and to discover my inner self.
If you are a person having problems in expressing your feelings, making decisions, and having confidence, I urge you strongly to choose Cindi. She will be there for you, and she will help you surely. My life has changed literally after her, and so I send her my deepest feeling and consideration, I love you.
I knew Cindi was going to help ease the mental crap-storm from the very first message that she sent me. Everything that she has been saying to me has been exactly what I’ve been looking for and unable to find in a face to face counsellor anywhere near my hometown. She’s been overly helpful and I’m extremely thankful that help is offered in this way in a more portable 24/7 set up. Only thing I’m sad about is that I can’t give her a real hug to say Thank you!
I appreciate that Cindi takes the time to read my long messages that may seem like a novel, analyzes everything line by line & responds/comments to everything. I really feel like she's there for me when I feel like I have no one else & I would love to meet her in person.
Absolutely wonderful! I really enjoy the option of text therapy and feel so supported by Cindi. She’s encouraging and gives me great advice.
She has been a great help. She gives very good advice.
I absolutely love her. She's kind, considerate, and honestly if she wasn't my paid councilor, she'd probably be my best friend. I really appreciate all the time she spends on me and how quickly she responds. I really do feel like someone cares.
She is amazing ..... first conversation.... so insightful in a way I never saw but so true. I have never been happier in a long time .... I am planning things, Cyndi makes me feel like taking charge.... driving forward .... so great - thank you!
Cindi has truly been an amazing therapist for me, she always replies in a timely manner and always reviews situations with care and support. One of the main things I love about her that differs from other therapists, is that she not only listens to you but often she helps you understand what's going on, and even gives you solutions and advices that seem fit to your problems.
Before speaking with her I thought BetterHelp didn't work, but she changed my mind. She is caring and she is professional. I am glad that I found her.
Talking to Cindi has helped me feel sane again. I would complain to friends and loved ones constantly and they would offer support but I needed professional advice to actually see change in my life. I'm so grateful for the comfort and sense of control that BetterHelp has given me. When I first started using this site, I wrote huge messages to Cindi every day and she always replied with helpful insight within 24 hours. The physical act of reflecting on the situation and writing it out was therapeutic in itself but having your deepest thoughts heard and understood is priceless. It's been almost 6 months and now I only write to Cindi once or twice a week. I can scroll up and reread her advice and see how my thinking has improved. I'm so proud of what we're accomplishing together- my life is getting better every day and everybody I know is benefiting from that.
I enjoy working with Cindi. She is a good listener who engages with you. She is not condescending and gently encourages you to examine other approaches to holding your situation as necessary.
I’ve been going to her throughout the last couple years on and off. So very helpful and insightful and respectful in many ways.
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.
Understanding caring and kind.
Feels good talking to someone who is curious about you.
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.
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 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 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.
