Music therapy is a unique creative and
expressive therapy that integrates
psychological principles with the many advantages music may offer. What
makes music therapy different from any other form of therapy is its reliance on
music. Thus, at the core of every session is any number of musical experiences
which the therapist selects or designs according to the goals of each
individual therapy. These may include: musical improvisation (using instruments
and/or the voice), singing, breathwork, creating music, songwriting, listening
experiences, musical play, symbolic use of musical instruments, musical guided
imagery, therapeutic voicework and more.
I am a licensed music therapist with a PhD in the field from Bar-Ilan University. I have extensive clinical experience treating children, adolescents, students, adults and the elderly. Among the difficulties I treat are emotional, behavioral, social, developmental, and neurological conditions. I additionally treat vocal issues of an emotional origin. I work with both secular and religious communities.
The Lord Taylor Music Therapy Clinic is conveniently located at the David Yellin College of Education in Beit Hakerem, Jerusalem, Israel. It is wheelchair accessible. Underground parking is provided.
Online sessions additionally available.
You are welcome to contact me for further details and to arrange an introductory meeting (either in person or online):

The David Yellin College of Education, Jerusalem
Elizabeth is a skilled, knowledgeable and caring therapist. She is licensed by the Ministry of Health which is extremely important. The therapy sessions which we now do through ZOOM continue to be very helpful. I feel assured knowing my child's well-being is in very competent hands.
I would like to extend my gratitude to Elizabeth for her very effective and dedicated treatment. She quickly succeeded in treating what many others could not. An impressive accomplishment.
I recommend both the music therapy and the therapist!
