Savyon Sordean

Savyon Sordean, MSW (Smith College)
Post-MSW Graduate Fellow

Savyon earned her MSW from Smith College School for Social Work and her Bachelors of the Arts in Psychology at UCLA. She completed her field placements at a middle school in Berkeley, California, and in the Hospice Department at Kaiser Permanente in San Francisco, California. Before starting school, Savyon worked with students attending University of California, Berkeley in engagement, and loved the vitality and motivation that the students brought to the table. 

When working as a clinician, Savyon's philosophy focuses on the healing nature of connection between people, and strives to bring empathy, compassion, and presence into the therapeutic space. Savyon's practice is grounded in feminist, relational, mindfulness, attachment-based, and psychodynamic theories, with consideration of critical race theory and the effects of racism, sexism, homophobia, and other oppressive forces that impact the lives of the Emory student body, especially students holding marginalized identities. 

Outside of work, you might find Savyon gardening, water coloring, hiking near rivers or waterfalls, or cooking and baking elaborate meals for family and friends.
