Jeff Garrison Tate


I’ve spent over 24 years working for Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, largely in the training division focused on Adult Protective Services.  I have a BA in Psychology from Texas A&M University and a MS in Community Counseling from Texas A&M Commerce.  In addition to my years in DFPS, I have experience working in drug and alcohol counseling as well as working as a case manager at a placement for persons with mental health challenges.  I enjoy volunteering through the Junior League of Arlington as well as helping with various fundraisers that touch my heart.  To recharge I love spending time with family, friends and relaxing at the beach!
