Alex Ratzlaff is excited to remain at Heartland Therapy Connection after finishing her Master’s in Mental Health Counseling at UMKC. She decided to pursue being a counselor after realizing she wouldn’t be where she is today without the help of the counselors she worked with through different struggles. Alex has worked with a variety of clients ranging from ages 20 to 70. Her passion is to work with those struggling with anxiety and depression.

Alex believes we all experience difficult periods through our lives and it is important to have someone to talk to who can give support, skills and coping tools to make daily life more enjoyable. Her goal is to create an accepting environment no matter where a client is in their journey, and walk alongside them as they discover a life worth living.
