You should be able to achieve this functionality by creating a custom lightning component.

You might want to look into the lightning:tabset component, when you initialize your component, you will want to check the current users profile in your Apex class using the UserInfo Class to determine the Profile.

Based on the profile, you should be able to control what tabs are create/displayed in your component markup.

If you are unsure on how to proceed, I would suggest you check Lightning Components Basics.
