This 10 year old girl found me by reading about counseling in an American Girl book!  "You're a lot of fun and I feel I can say anything to you... I've learned so many things from talking to you.  You even helped my sister with her temper."

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.

Excellent
Jane is understanding, and immediately seemed to be able to put words to the emotions I had been experiencing, but couldn't describe. Jane has a "toolkit" of different skills that she uses in order to understand her patients. Since I've been meeting with her, my relationship with my husband and children have all greatly improved, as well as my own self-awareness. Jane is great at communicating via email, sending articles and links between appointments. I highly recommended her!

Help on My Darkest Day
I met Jane after my company matched me up with her on a day that I needed help. I am so thankful to her for listening to me, immedietly understanding how she could help and what I need, and then working through my problems one by one. I owe her my sanity!

Breath of Fresh Air
My daughter and I have had an excellent experience with Turtle Dove. Working with Jane has already proven to be inspiring, comfortable and eye opening. She connects well and has a wide breadth of knowledge and resources. Scheduling was uncommonly quick and easy too!

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.

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.

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. She also doesn't rush to recommend medications and does give you alternativ treatments that most people in the profession don't do. Overall a great place.

I clearly have a safe space in the Hood. Because of my experience with Jane, I know that this is a small town with a big heart. Not just counseling in the office, Jane does lots of follow up on the Internet. I can't ask for more.

Hood River is the perfect place to live and Jane is the perfect guide to the places within me. Almost every day there is an email with information, videos to watch and information to expand the experience. Yay, Jane! Yay, me!

My family and myself have been seeing Jane both privately and as a family for about two years. At the time I met Jane I was instantly impressed by her presence and warmth. I felt heard and understood immediately and I knew I had found the perfect counselor. Since then Jane has helped my family through several crisis as well as being a constant wealth of knowledge of tools in the community and beyond. Her dedication and experience show in every session we have with her. I would highly recommend Jane for any adult, child, or family who is looking for a counselor to be more than just someone to talk to. She will help you and your family achieve growth in all the ways you want. She is truly very gifted at what she does.

From the moment I walked into the room it just felt right. The atmosphere and décor made me feel at peace within my self. Jane is the best at what she does; listens, gives feedback, help work out solutions that to one person could mean the world and then she helps you put it all into perspective. As far as the gorge goes; I believe Turtle Dove Counseling is the best place for some one who really wants, needs, or wants to know if they need help.

My wife and I left our initial session with Jane feeling very satisfied with her therapeutic approach. We look forward to gaining new tools that will aid in our listening skills and subsequent increased communication.
