Deborah Vaughn is a Licensed Professional Counselor located in Murfreesboro, TN. Deborah has over 15 years of experience supporting clients through a wide range of situations, issues, or mental health conditions. She most often works with clients who struggle with anxiety or depression. This could look like excessive crying, having difficulty controlling emotions, feeling afraid for no clear reason, having panic attacks, or feeling so emotionally tired that going through the day’s routine seems overwhelming. She helps clients make healthy changes in their lives so they can feel engaged, present, and at peace.
Deborah raised five children. She draws on her experiences as a mother to empathize with her clients and to offer them support through hope, encouragement, and validation. Sessions with Deborah are never judgmental, instead they’re curious, compassionate, and at the client’s own pace. Deborah is certified in hypnosis, a therapy modality that is helpful for behavioral changes. Deborah helps clients break unhealthy habits and replace those habits with healthier alternatives. She teaches clients how to place their attention and focus inwardly, rather than becoming distracted by life’s many roadblocks.
