Crystal Lattanzio, LPC founder of Prompt & Play,
has a masters degree in Clinical Psychology. She obtained her bachelor’s and master’s degrees
from West Chester University of Pennsylvania in 2001 and 2003, respectively. In 2006, she completed post masters education
and additional experience working with children in a group setting. Utilizing behavioral modes of therapy with her
clients, she has gained insight into the social networking of children.
Crystal has been working with children since 1995. In 1999, she worked as a counselor for adolescents with
eating disorders at the Renfrew Center in Philadelphia. Working in a Chester County wrap-around organization in 2000, Crystal
became Therapeutic Support Staff (TSS) before transitioning to a Behavioral Specialist Consultant (BSC) and Mobile Therapist (MT)
in 2003. In these positions, she worked one-on-one with children with a wide range of disorders including ODD, Autism, and
Aspergers Syndrome. Providing behavioral therapy, she gained experience in Lovass’s Applied Behavioral Analysis and
in Greenspan Techniques.
In 2004, Crystal moved from this position to become a therapist in a Philadelphia city school, where she
worked with children on becoming more aware of their social environment and adapting to this environment. She held individual
therapy sessions, group social skill sessions, and family therapy sessions. Crystal then returned in 2005 to the wrap-around
field in Chester County as a Behavior Specialist.
Crystal received dual licensure in 2006 in Pennsylvania and Delaware as a professional counselor.
The one constant with all of the children she has worked with, is their significant need for social and
life skill interventions. She found that with help, children were able to learn how to function happily in a social environment.
She realized that for a child, it is important to have a sense of belonging and to feel important. It is her goal to help all
children and young adults come to their full potential and be happy individuals.
Crystal is a licensed professional counselor.
