In addition to helping children, teens and adults in outpatient settings, Rectanus has experience helping severely emotionally and behaviorally disturbed children and their families at residential facilities. Her work has consisted of providing individual, group and family therapy; case management services; and crisis intervention. She also has some direct care experience.
