I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of North Carolina and also a certified Health Coach. I received my Master’s Degree in Social Work from Columbia University in New York City and I have over 30 years of social work experience working in a variety of social work settings. I have worked with clients who have struggled with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, loss, parenting problems, career challenges and a number of other issues.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I begin by listening carefully to the issues and deciding together with you on goals for therapy. My approach is client-centered and combines cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, mindfulness, psychodynamic and psycho-educational. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I am committed to supporting all people where they are in life and helping them transition through difficult times of crisis or stress by building resilience and using healthier coping skills.
Life at times can be very overwhelming and challenging. It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step towards feeling better emotionally, mentally and physically, I will be here to support and empower you.
I look forward to having the privilege to work with you!

I am so fortunate to have been connected with therapist Tulani Vaughn. She has a breadth of knowledge and an impressive educational background. As a woman of color, I wanted someone that I felt comfortable with and could relate to on some level. Her approach is warm and patient and very supportive and she offers excellent suggestions. I really appreciate her positive upbeat reminders and flexibility in her schedule. I look forward to our future sessions.
