John Ramirez, LCSW

John Ramirez joined the Heartland team in 2019 and is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) located at the Garden location. John’s outlook and practice are shaped by his faith, which has been influenced by his experience being the son to missionaries (Costa Rica and Honduras), being a missionary (Japan), pursuing studies overseas (Dominican Republic, France, Austria, and Scotland), and short-term mission work in Haiti (following the 2010 disaster). He recognizes the beauty in diversity and strives to demonstrate it in patient care practice. In his personal time, John enjoys spending time with his family (wife and two young children), friends, faith, reading, and travelling.
