Sarah Warfield

(LMHC, CSAC)

About Me

I am a substance abuse and mental health counselor licensed in Hawaii with 5 years of experience working in community mental health. I have worked with various agencies providing services to children and adolescents, working with families (including those with youth in foster care), and with adults experiencing a wide variety of difficulties. I have worked as a substance abuse counselor for 3 years, and have 4 years of experience working with clients involved in the legal system as well as those who have severe mental illnesses.

My counseling style focuses on the client and the stresses and suffering they are experiencing. I focus on helping clients develop their inner self so they can overcome life's challenges. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and motivational enhancement techniques to help move the client from problem to solution, and then to success. Because each client is unique, I work with each individual to develop a plan that works for them and focuses on their strengths.

Reaching out for help is a huge task. There are a lot of "what ifs" involved. I'm happy to have a conversation with you and help in any way I can. Together we can move forward.

Sarah Warfield has been the most sincere and helpful person I have ever talked to. I cannot thank her enough.

Sarah is a great therapist in the way she is attentive to your thoughts and feelings and is able to hone in on what problems we can work on. I have had experience with other therapists where they seem stone face and with no emotion but Sarah is able to connect with you while still remaining professional. Would strongly recommend her for anyone dealing with anxiety or depression especially

Sarah is so sweet and thoughtful. She’s also relatable to me so sometimes I feel like I’m chatting with a friend who happens to be a great listener and offers good advice.

In just a few sessions over the phone sarah has been extremely helpful. I am hopeful for healing in many areas of my life and BetterHelp matched us perfectly.

Written by I.R. on Aug 25, 2020 after counseling with Sarah for 1 month on issues concerning family conflicts, and anger management

I have completed 2 months of counselling with Sarah and it has been extremely helpful. Sarah is very responsive and always is very good to guide on the right line of thought and to help understand ones emotions and mental health.
Sarah has been a huge help in defining the path to continuous improvement for me. Sarah explains things very well and provides structure feedback to allow one to view situations from different perspectives.

She has been extremely helpful. We have only been working together for a couple of weeks, but she has listened to me, given me some practical tools to use, and has really taken the time to explain things in a way I can understand.

First and foremost, mahalo nui loa (thank you very much), for this wonderful website. Btw, so glad you have an app for this. Thank you for pairing me up with Sarah. Sarah has been very understanding and helpful. With this review I feel like I'm judging her though she never judges me or my issues. I look forward to writing in my journal when needed. Just being able to write down what I'm going through at the moment is a biggie for me. I realized how much I was holding in. Sarah has always responded kindly and in a timely manner. I look forward to our sessions always. Aloha.

Written by D.A. on Jul 22, 2020 after counseling with Sarah for 2 weeks on issues concerning anger management

Very kind, respectful and after the first session she was already able to help me get my anger under control.

Sarah makes me feel safe and comfortable and goes out of her way to really try to understand what I'm trying to say or express. She is great at explaining the science behind why we feel certain ways. She offers really great tools of different coping mechanisms and even does exercises with you so you may better understand them and when to use them.

I have only had one session so far and I loved it. I think it will take a few more to be able to judge betterhelp more. Can't wait to talk to her again.
