Hello! I'm Tex.
I am the psychotherapist for Changing Patterns Psychotherapy Services, LLC.
My practice provides mental health services to adolescents, adults and family members by helping them develop their inner resources to manage behaviors and create positive behavioral and lifestyle changes using Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Clinical Hypnotherapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
Kerry "Tex" Ellis is a Maryland Board-approved supervisor for those seeking to obtain their LCSW or LCSW-C.
His supervision philosophy is one that not only allows the supervisee the opportunity to discuss their cases, but provides them guidance and mentorship on a variety of issues that arise between clinicians and clients, operating a practice, dealing with emotions that may arise in practice and enabling the clinician to become a better therapist through continual education and guidance.
Candidates seeking supervision are required to have direct face-to-face oversight, a minimum of 3 hours of face-to-face supervision per month or 1 hour of face-to-face supervision for every 40 hours worked.
Only 72 hours (50 LCSW) of group supervision may count towards the 144 hours (100 for LCSW) of supervision required for advanced licensure.
Supervisees must be knowledgeable about Maryland Health Occ. Code Ann. (“H.O.”) §19-302 of the Social Work Practice Act (H.O. §§
19-101 etseq.) and Regulations governing the Practice of Social Work COMAR 10.42.01 to 10.42.08. Obtain a copy of the Board’s supervisory approval which can be found on the Board’s website under the verification section.(www.health.maryland.gov/bswe)Individual and Group Supervision is available. Group Supervision may be available at a reduced rate.
