I love Dr. Vaughn. She is the best therapist I've had! BetterHelp did such a great job in matching me with her and finding someone who was exactly what I needed. She has so much more of an understanding of my struggles than anyone ever has. I don't need to explain myself so much to her and she never invalidates me. She is so kind, gentle, and supportive. She really makes you feel safe talking to her and she helps me to understand my needs better. She understands the complexity of struggles and doesn't just give easy answers she will help you find strategies that work.

Dr. Vaughn is an absolutely incredible counselor. She is decorated with numerous degrees which is apparent after only once conversation with her. She is patient and always knows what to say. She always responds as promptly as I could ask for. I would never go back to appointment based face to face counseling because Dr. Vaughn has been able to really change my perspective on things and really take control of my life.

Dr. Vaughn has listened to me, respected what I'm saying, and has been able to redirect some problematic thought patterns towards positive ones. She has also given me many strategies to help me when I'm feeling down.

Dr. Vaughn is great. I feel respected and heard. She gives me helpful information and worksheets. She replies typically just once a day, but does offer live chats if needed/wanted. I really appreciate her guidance.

Dr. Vaughn heard me and spoke to me in a way that I had not experienced ever before. My few sessions with her have been a great success and I can already see tangible results in my life and my relationship. Dr. Vaughn is a very capable professional who listens, understands and offers solutions with due respect to the needs and sensitivities of her client. I look forward to our continued relationship.
