Associate (Since 2021)
Melissa Tarver, LCSW
My name is Melissa Tarver and I have lived in the Grayson County area since 2000. Fortunately, I was able to start my career at Texoma Community Center with several of my colleagues in this office, while completing my master’s in social work from Texas A&M Commerce. In my internships I had the opportunity to work with juvenile probation and the boot camp through the JJD. I learned a great deal at TCC about mental health needs, but also strengths perspective and CBT. After leaving TCC I moved to long term care social work at skilled nursing facilities and then geriatric social work and continued in long term care as a LCSW and providing psychotherapy to long term care residents and skilled patients returning home after completing physical, occupational and speech therapy. I am skilled in many different forms of therapy, such as CBT, DBT, anxiety/ mood management, problem solving, empowerment, behavioral therapy, insight oriented, person centered, crisis management and solution focused. I look forward to working with you.
