Jan 17 2012 Jane Rekas is very skilled 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. Nov 14, 2011 Jane has been working with me for about 6 years off and on.  She has been very helpful teaching me the DBT skills that I know now.  I have having symptoms of my mental health, addiction and physical health.  When I started working with her, the symptoms were overwhelming me.  Now, even though I am working through hard issues, I am able to put the skills and help she has given me to stay away from my very dark places.  I am no longer living in a state of crisis every day.
