Let’s EngAge!

Natasha Goldstein-Levitas Headshot

I am a Philadelphia, PA based Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist with over two decades of clinical experience working primarily with older adults, individuals living with dementia, and their care partners, in multiple healthcare and community-based settings and organizations. I am also an Educator and Program Leader with several years of experience in both healthcare and higher education roles. I am well connected in the aging, wellness, and creative arts communities-at-large.  

I continue to look for opportunities to connect and EngAge, using a person-centered, movement, and sensory hybrid approach, and to share creative practices and resources that may improve overall quality of life and health outcomes for diverse communities. I offer innovative, preventive care practices that are evidence- and strength-based, universal, inclusive, cost-effective, and accessible. Quite simply, I am committed to promoting community wellness and overall quality of living for all. 

My Approach

A deeper human connection.
SenseAble engagement.

Therapeutic movement experiences, creative suggestions for support and empowerment, and therapeutic, evidence-based recommendations to help communities, individuals, and their care partners navigate life changes and move towards wellness.
