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 am a Licensed Professional Counselor and have my Master's of Science in Art Therapy from Florida State University. I seek to use art therapy approaches, somatic and sensory approaches, positive psychology, and a strengths-based focus to tailor therapy to meet the needs of individual clients, families, and couples. Additionally, I am receiving certification in EMDR, trauma therapy.
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, community health organizations, and schools to acquire experiences that have enhanced my ability to curate a therapy practice that is flexible and active in its nature.
As both an artist and a therapist I see each client and therapy session as a place for creativity whether that be through the use of art materials themselves to explore, uncover meaning, regulate, or soothe, or in how we work alongside of one another to investigate experiences. Creativity does not necessarily rely on the use of art or making of it; rather, in how we think about life, approach it, and choose to experience it.

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.
