The Attachment Center of Central Oregon

Lynne Herbert, LPC


Lynne has been a licensed since 2000 and in private practice in Bend since 2006.  Her early training was in Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy, a type of work designed by Daniel Hughes, PhD to work with families with children who had severe attachment difficulties.  The population Lynne primarily served initially was children who required residential care, and she received a great deal of guidance, supervision, and support from Dr. Hughes to use his model in this setting.  Lynne continues to use the skills she learned in residential care now in her private practice with adults, individually, as couples, and in regard to parenting.  


Throughout the years, her practice has grown to include more mindfulness, somatic awareness, and EMDR, but she continues to be grounded in looking at her clients through an attachment-focused, relational lens.  Lynne sees relationship and connection as basic human drives and helps clients to uncover and address the fears, barriers, or guards they have put up in the past to survive relationship and re-learn how to feel safe and thrive in connection.  


Lynne loves her work, is inspired by her clients, and is excited to watch the changes that are possible through therapy.
