About Natasha

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 strategies 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 professional experience includes:

  • Healthcare administration
  • Higher education program leadership, adjunct instruction, and curriculum development for a new Creative Arts Therapy Minor undergraduate program
  • Community-wide therapeutic program design, development, and implementation
  • Care partner training
  • Dance/movement therapy (DMT) clinical supervision and research involvement
  • Aging and dementia presentations
  • Clinical writing
  • Regular DMT and therapeutic engagement facilitation

I have presented my work and approach at various healthcare, aging, and dementia conferences and communities including: the Alzheimer’s Association, Memory Care Forum, LeadingAge Meeting and EXPO, and Drexel University’s College of Nursing and Health Professions. I am also a published author on topics related to my work and a member of The National Institute for Dementia Education (NIDE), Standards of Excellence (SOE) Council.
