Psychotherapy, LCSW

Not Taking New Clients
Sidrah Khan’s therapeutic style does not consist of "fixing," but rather of creating a safe and nonjudgmental environment for you to explore whatever is holding you back from embodying your highest self. She has a background in trauma-informed care and practices very holistically—weaving in mindfulness, cognitive restructuring, and mind-body connections throughout her approach.

Profile
“I believe that every person has the innate power to experience true joy and fulfillment in life—and I truly think there is nothing more beautiful and inspiring than the power of human resilience.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
My life has not been without its own challenges, and I myself have found therapy to be extraordinarily helpful. I did my graduate studies at New York University, learning from some of the best in the field, and gained experience through working with many different populations. I believe that every person has the innate power to experience true joy and fulfillment in life—and I truly think there is nothing more beautiful and inspiring than the power of human resilience. When I’m not in session, I enjoy public speaking, including lecturing about trauma and other topics at schools, universities, conferences, and events.
What should someone know about working with you?
I consider myself a holistic therapist—I believe that the mind, body, and all systems within are connected—and practice from an eclectic, tailored, person-centered approach. I believe that the relationship is the most important part of therapy and I will always show up as welcoming, warm, and authentic so that we can develop trust. My sessions fit with what works for you and can be open-ended or structured. I like to give homework (or rather, inspiring suggestions) so you have something to take away from each session while we explore the longer term, more in-depth work. I want everyone to feel like they are getting something of therapy, and I won’t shy away from pointing out progress as well as what we can continue addressing together.

How does collaboration with other providers inform your work?
I have a very skilled private mentor/clinical supervisor who I see weekly to ensure I am continuing to grow as a therapist and show up as my best self for my clients. I also have relationships with several medication managers I can refer to, as well as an array of holistic practitioners, like massage therapists, acupuncturists, reiki masters, and naturopaths, that I often suggest for people who are interested.
What advice would you give to someone who is hesitant to try therapy?
If you find the right therapist, it can be a wonderfully positive and life-changing experience. Therapy is not a quick fix, but rather a process where both you and I agree to show up authentically, honestly, and ready to work collaboratively. It’s a unique relationship unlike any other—and one that can empower you in the safest and most effective way.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am ecstatic that the mind-body approach I utilize is becoming more and more popular today and that each system is not seen as totally separate. I fully believe in the power of talk therapy, but I also believe that other kinds of bodywork and lifestyle adjustments can be supplementally helpful.
