Natasha Goldstein-Levitas Headshot

I am a Philadelphia, PA based Dance/Movement Therapist specializing in Aging & Dementia Care. I have two decades of experience working with older adults, individuals living with dementia, and their care partners, across various cultures and socio-economic backgrounds. I feel strongly that regular therapeutic engagement, the creative arts, and a welcoming, sensory-inviting setting are key components to wellness. I am committed to helping to promote healthier aging and overall quality of life for individuals with varying cognitive and physical abilities. I use a person-centered, movement, and sensory hybrid approach, to help connect and EngAge.

Dance/Movement Therapy (DMT)

“… is the psychotherapeutic use of movement and dance to support intellectual, emotional, and motor functions of the body. As a modality of the creative arts therapies, DMT looks at the correlation between movement and emotion.”
