An Artist and a Therapist
I’m Jordyn Dooley, owner of Mosaic Sun Valley, Art Therapy and Counseling, an integrative therapy practice based in Ketchum, Idaho. I received my Masters of Science in Art Therapy from Florida State University in 2018 and am both a professional counselor and registered art therapist. I am trained in EMDR and in the level 1 Gottman Method for couples. I approach therapy through an eclectic approach, realizing that each person and client are different; therefore, needing different tools, interventions, and techniques in order to achieve their desired goals and outcomes.
Since 2016, I have been developing my skills and strengthening my abilities to be able to create a practice that I feel is at its core supportive, accepting, and exploratory. I have worked in diverse settings including hospitals, trauma centers, veteran's organizations, community health organizations, and schools to acquire experiences that have enhanced my ability to curate a therapy practice that is flexible and adaptive in its nature.
A Florida native and Idaho transplant, I have been in our gorgeous Valley in various capacities for the past ten years, and more permanently for five. I enjoy skiing, our warm and welcoming town, capturing its beauty through my own art, and hiking with my dog, Grace Kelly, who sometimes makes therapy appearances.

What is Art Therapy?
Art therapy is an integrative mental health and human services profession that enriches the lives of individuals, families, and communities through active art-making, creative processes, human experience within a psychotherapeutic relationship (The American Art Therapy Association, 2017).
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing
I am currently receiving certification in EMDR and have completed my training. EMDR is another mode of therapy that, "does not require talking in detail about the distressing issue or
completing homework between sessions. EMDR therapy, rather than focusing on changing the emotions, thoughts, or behaviors resulting from the distressing issue, allows the brain to resume its natural healing process"(EMDRIA, 2022).
"EMDR therapy is designed to resolve unprocessed traumatic memories in the brain. For many clients, EMDR therapy can be completed in fewer sessions than other psychotherapies"(EMDRIA, 2022). It is an option in therapy and can be discussed upon making an initial appointment.
