Dr. Sajid
(she/hers)

It is imperative to support a diverse environment, equality in all measures of life and inclusivity of not just humanity but ideas, morals, and values.  In an effort to support these principles in my work and life, I strive to peel back the layers applied to the complexity of individual differences that contributes to the diverse makeup of how we show up in our daily lives. I value a collaborative process that focuses on your needs in a safe space to offer you the tools that can help you heal and change.

I approach therapy from a trauma and culturally informed perspective interwoven with multicultural feminist and relational frameworks. I integrate Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Trauma-focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Additionally, I have worked in a variety of settings with diverse populations that include schools, medical centers, community mental health, and a college counseling center. I specialize working with adolescents, emerging adults, and adult populations. My areas of interest include trauma and recovery, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, family of
origin issues, racial/ethnic identity issues, gender identity, and social justice and advocacy. As a
first-generation immigrant and south-Asian woman, I offer unique insight for Muslim and Asian
clients from various religious and cultural backgrounds. I also offer services in Urdu and Hindi
for potential clients. Below you will find relevant background and training experiences that have
honed my skills to incorporate an inclusive and diverse perspective in therapy.
