This would work but I am getting an error because my Users.Id (guid) is different from Users.Username (varchar).  Can I use CAST somehow to compare these as 2 strings?

DELETE S FROM [DatabaseName].[dbo].[Sessions] as S
	INNER JOIN [DatabaseName].[dbo].[Users] as U on S.UserId = U.Id
    WHERE U.Id = U.Username
GO
