Therapy and Hypnosis
My daughter is 15 and she has been seeing Jane for about 6 months for therapy, and we have recently started using some hypnotherapy. My daughter is so comfortable with Jane. Jane is so helpful for my daughter and I'm glad we made the choice to make an appointment . We chose Jane because of her acceptance and understanding of all types of life styles. We love that she uses crystals and essential oils in her practice. I would recommend Turtle Dove to everyone! Feb 22, 2017

Pleasant experience I have seen Jane Rekas for several problems including boundary
issues and for hypnosis to lose weight. Jane is a very caring, knowledgeable counselor. She has helped me every time I have called on her for support. One nice thing I want to mention is she went out of her way to accommodate my schedule. Jane is an asset to our Gorge community Feb 18, 2017

Excellent Care!

Jane is absolutely top notch. She is caring, professional, and dedicated to her clients.

Jane has been seeing 3 of my family members, including myself, as individuals and as a group. She has been such a blessing! Jane is the perfect combination of validating your feelings, while telling you how it is. If it came up, I would definitely recommend her to other friends or family! Dec 8, 2016

Personal Growth

Jane has been an asset to my personal growth over the last few years. I always feel refreshed after speaking with her and know that she is present and listening unlike some other therapists that I feel can be sterile and calculating. She is a warm, wonderful, guiding light in my life and has helped me so much. I highly recommend her to anyone considering counseling. Nov 16, 2016

Personal therapy

I think Jane is one of the most caring therapist I have met in my therapy history. I really appreciate her compassion, insight and knowledge on many topics during our sessions. Every time I go I get something out of our therapy, and gain new perspective on how to deal with my emotions and life problems. I also love the fact Jane offers hypnotism as well as other alternative therapies in her practice. Oct 17, 2016


Absolutely loved my experience! Thank you so much... I'm feeling better already. It's hard to imagine that so much can be accomplished in such a short amount of time. Aug 23, 2016

Uniquely Jane

Many counselors over the years without progress or understanding. A lifetime fraught with depression, anxiety and suicidal ideation, without relief. The numbness of antidepressant medication. Jane is a refreshingly unique therapist. I was an emotional nightmare the day I sat down on her couch. In a few weeks with her guidance and insights, I have begun to heal the wounded places of my heart. Jane is an amazing soul, very present with compassion. Her tool box is full of creative energies Aug 23, 2016

Now I can go forward with confidence!

My experience yesterday creating my personalized color fan with Jane was so worthwhile! After spending many years trying to figure it out on my own, it was a relief to consult with this lovely professional. I felt at ease the whole time and it was fun! I recommend her services to everyone. Aug 20, 2016


TDC has been helpful. I am looking forward to having more success as counseling and hypnosis continues. Jul 8, 2016

Freedom is a Decision.

I've been taking counsel from Jane for a few years now. I was depressed, I carried suicidal thoughts, had so much confusion about why I feel like I have felt so many long years. I was a prisoner to fear and emotional distress. I made a great decision. I decided I wanted to break the binds that come as a veil of lies. Through talk, hypnosis, color therapy and Reiki, Jane has stood by my side supporting my transformation. Due to my decision to seek great counsel I'm now free. Jun 2, 2016

"What i need...When i need it! I have honestly never felt the amount of ease and comfort when discussing some rather uncomfortable events that have plagued my life for many years.very few people in my life that i chose to confide in have given me the sense of trust that emanates from Jane.I always end up getting the feedback that i need to hear and whether i like it or not it is always what i need to hear. when i walk out of her office i know in my heart no matter how i'm feeling i just made my day a better day!"" 11/28/15

"I first met Jane at her DBT group. I found her to be straightforward and kind. I learned so much in such a short period from her. Soon, I decided to try hypnosis. I am not a trusting person by nature, but Jane made me feel comfortable and safe in the space. I listen to my recordings to this day. Here I am a few years later in need of a more hands-on counselor. Jane came to mind immediately. I highly recommend Jane to anyone seeking compassionate solutions." 11/8/15

Our "Higher Power" "Around us always is our "Higher Power". It is my belief Jane is extremely intelligent and with her empathetic understanding she is part of that "Higher Power". I give thanks for her many times each day as life moves on. With each breath (when I decide to quit holding it) life becomes easier for me." 9/14/15

"Therapy with insight. I've only begun therapy with Jane but already I enjoy her use of multiple modalities to help explore myself fully. I appreciate using regular therapy tricks along with astrology and hypnosis to delve into the issues I'm working through. I like that she does not use a cookie cutter approach but rather looks at you as a whole to help navigate your process. " 8/12/15

DBT Classes " I have been working with Jane Rekas for three years. I just recently started her DBT class. It is been extremely helpful for me to recognize and identify my emotions. And help to regulate them. I also downloaded a DBT app on my phone which sends my therapist emails of my emotional diary. Jane is always prompt or returning my emails with suggestions in the DBT information that I have received. Highly recommend the DBT classes!!"  8/4/15

"A therapist that truly cares it's hard to find! I first met Jane three years ago. I came to Hood River with no money and no insurance for mental health help. Center for living wanted to much money for a evaluation and for their services there's no way that I had that money at that time. It was a miracle that somebody had passed me a card and said try to call her she might be able to help. If it wasn't for her in my life I would not be where I'm at today. She help me to heal! Jane is truly empathetic understanding and an extremely intelligent."  2/19/15

Thank you !!  10/30/14

"Hope and Strength. I came to Jane feeling hopeless and defeated by my anxieties. I have seen multiple therapists in the past, and Jane was the only one who made me feel completely understood and like I wasn't alone with my struggles. The combination of her hypnosis and cognitive behavioral therapy techniques allowed me to feel for the first time in a long time that my anxiety was manageable. Jane helped me find the strength to keep fighting my fears. " 9/1/14

"A great place to be. I was suffering loss and sought counseling, I came slightly opinionated with strict "off limits" topics. Jane Rekus provides me with "you lead" counseling that feels safe. The environment is warm and inviting and you can't help but relax and trust her amazing insight." 5/19/13

"Jane is understanding, and immediately seemed to be able to put words to the emotions I had been experiencing, but couldn't describe.

I found Ms. Rekas after conducting research to find a local therapist capable of helping my child cope with trauma, anxiety and loss, which are exacerbated by a learning disability. Ms. Rekas has built a valuable and effective therapeutic relationship with my child who has experienced a marked reduction in anxiety and related behaviors. I am also better equipped to meet my child’s needs. I could not be more pleased with Ms. Rekas’ professionalism, or service. " 1/17/12

"Great with children. My 2 children see Jane once a month and she has done a great job of coming up with individualized ways for each of my children to express their problems etc with her.
