Rita has her own psychological issues, scars being one of them. Having them uncovered used to make her feel vulnerable, small, and weak, which is humiliating for a future chief and an unforgivable thing for a hero. She tells about this on pages 109-110. She overcame her fear of uncovering the scars eventually, though, but the issue with memories about Jan was a tougher one. In a way, Rita's own brother did more damage to her mind than a sharp-toothed nightmarish monster she defeated. Jan did bad things to her when she was a little kid, and made her do bad things to others. Mere memories of this are humiliating. Rita exiled them to the darkest corner of her mind, just like her tribe exiled Jan to the swamp island. So when she tells Tim she couldn't talk about Jan, that's true: she really couldn't. Meeting her brother again, fighting him, seeing him weak and at her mercy freed Rita from the old fear.
