Natasha Goldstein-Levitas Headshot

I am a Philadelphia, PA based Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist specializing in Aging, Dementia, and Care Partner Support. I am also the Director of the Art Therapy Minor (and soon to be NEW Creative Arts Therapy Minor Undergraduate Program) at University of the Arts.

I have two decades of clinical experience working primarily with older adults, individuals living with dementia, and their care partners, across various cultures and socio-economic backgrounds. I continue to look for ways to help strengthen connections within these relationships, to empower these individuals, and to encourage self-expression. I use a person-centered, movement, and sensory hybrid approach, to help connect and EngAge.

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.
