About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of North Carolina , Licensed K-12 School Social Worker in 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. I have extensive experience working with children and adolescents who present emotional and behavioral challenges.

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 my clients on goals for therapy. My approach is client-centered and combines cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, mindfulness, psychodynamic and psycho-educational. I tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet my client's 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.

She was super understanding and listened to every I had to say, she took into account everything I said and even had me feel comfortable to talk about things I usually don't feel comfortable to do.

Tulani was really helpful to me. She was a great listener but was also able to identify the crux of the challenges I was facing and give me concrete suggestions of how to face them. I’m very grateful for all her advice.

It’s still early but feel we have found the right therapist for my daughter. She’s warm, supportive, funny, and direct. My daughter feels comfortable with her and building trust. Just what you would want.
