Under Clinical Supervision

Mrs. Sylvia Ruiz, Licensed Professional Counselor Associate, 89560 is practicing under the supervision of Melody Celeste Osborne (Texas, LPC-S, 72016) at Restoring Hope Counseling.

Please, note: A clinician listed as being “clinically supervised” is completing clinical hours toward their licensure. They have one or more fully licensed clinical supervisors that often have special training to become supervisors. They consult with their supervisor(s) on all of their cases, which means that, when working with them, you are getting the time and expertise of multiple therapists in your treatment.

What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

I have always wanted to help people but I didn't know in what capacity. As I lived my own life experiences, it helped me to focus on different ways that I wanted to help others who might be struggling with the same issues that I have gone through in my lifetime. I knew I wanted to help Veterans and Law Enforcement because of my family members who work in those fields. I knew I wanted to help those struggling with anxiety, depression, Autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, Bipolar, and learning disabilities because of my family members who I saw first hand struggle with those issues. I came to the conclusion that becoming a Licensed Professional Counselor was the best route for me.
