Licensed Psychologist 

Jeffrey Bruno,  M.S., Ph.D.

Dr. Jeffrey Bruno has decades of experience as a California licensed Psychologist. He is uniquely trained in the practice of integrative mental healthcare. He has decades of experience in traditional psychotherapies and in alterative healing therapies. Dr. Bruno works with a wide age-range of clients, from young children to adults and families.

An education in General Experimental Psychology (Master of Science, U.W. - Madison) and a doctorate in Clinical Psychology (C.I.I.S. - San Francisco) connects his love of science with his practice of psychological healing. Over four decades, he has studied western, eastern and alternative forms of mind-body-spirit medicine. He first coined the term, “Nutritional Psychology,” to describe an emerging, interdisciplinary field, that has since become more widely recognized.

Jeffrey was taught and inspired by many remarkable teachers, including:

  • Family & Gestalt therapist (James Guinan, Ph.D., a student of Fritz Pearls and Carl Witaker) 

  • Child & Play therapy (Sand tray & Play therapies with Moon Eng, Ph.D., Parent-Child-Interaction Therapy training at UC Davis, EMDR and Therapeutic Stories with Joan Lovett, MD)

  • Jungian Depth and Process-Orientated Psychology (John Perry, M.D. and Arnold Mendell, Ph.D.)  

  • Psycho-Sensory therapies (E.M.D.R. with Francine Shapiro, Ph.D., E.T.T. with Steven Vazques, Ph.D., Brainspotting with Robert Weisz, Ph.D, Biofeedback with Tom Fine, M.A., Neurofeedback with Julian Issacs, Ph.D., Energy Psychology with David Gruder, Ph.D., Auricular therapy with Terry Oleson, Ph.D., Sensora with Anadi Martel, and the Sensory Learning Program with Julie Bolles).   

  • Transpersonal Psychology (Steven Vazques, Ph.D., Ralph Metzner, Ph.D., John Lilly, M.D., and Stanislav Grof, M.D.)​

  • Eastern Psycho-Spiritual training was initiated by B.K.S. Iyengar (Hatha Yoga expert) and the Gelug lineage of Tibetan meditation masters (Lama Thubten Yeshe, Geshe Lhundub Sopa, the Dali Lama and his tutors).   

  • Traditional Naturopathic Medicine training by Dr. John Ray (pioneer of Body Electronics), Robert Stevens (Mastery Systems), Viktoras Kulvinskas (raw food advocate) and Dr. Bernard Jensen (father of American Iridology).  

  • Orthomolecular & Functional Medicine teachers of nutrition include Dr. Bill Walsh, Ph.D., Jeffrey Bland, Ph.D. and Julia Ross, M.D. He joined a 3-year monthly supervision group with integrative psychiatrist, Natale Sadler, M.D. In 2014, Dr. Bruno wrote a book, “Eat Light & Feel Bright.”  

  • Light and Chromatic therapies were introduced by Brian Breiling, Ph.D. (editor, “Light Years Ahead,”). Many other teachers and friends have inspired and supported Jeffrey in his lifelong consciousness studies and his pursuit of service in the holistic healing arts.  

Medicinal Herbalist & Wellness Consultant

Linda Bruno, M.H.

Linda Susan Bruno studied Art Education at the University of Toledo. During her senior year, she experienced a catastrophic injury, which left her unable to walk and in chronic pain. During her time of healing, learning to walk again, Linda began a study of Silva Mind Control. She learned how to manage her pain and to accelerate her natural healing process. That life changing injury channeled her into natural health care studies with massage, nutrition, Iridology, colon hygiene and herbal medicines. Linda has practiced and taught bodywork (massage, reflexology, and body electronics) for nearly 15 years. She instructed nurses at the Medical College of Ohio in massage therapy. 

Linda became a Medical Herbalist through the California Herbal Studies in Sebastopol, California in 1987. Linda also spent 3-years mentored by a naturopathic doctor, John Whitman Ray. She helps people to apply  natural principals of “Herrings Law of Cure” and healthy lifestyle changes. The use of minerals, food enzymes, probiotics, mostly a plant-based diet, water, and regular use of exercise and positive attitudes have contributed to significant heals in Linda’s life. She has worked with many hundreds of clients over the decades, providing holistic iridology, herbal and nutrition consultations, along with body-orientated therapies.

Linda is both a gifted intuitive and a practical teacher of the healing arts. She offers iridology readings, herbal and nutritional consultations.  Also, she is a valued support staff offering alternative therapies at the clinic. 

I am here to teach parents to see children's maladaptive behaviors as a form of communication and learn how to meet their needs (parent and child) so that their children don't have to act out anymore. In the process parents grow and became happier people as well.

Child Psychotherapist

Anyella Clark, M.F.T.

My name is Anyella Clark, I am a licensed marriage and family therapist, child-parent psychotherapist and an early childhood specialist. I have dedicated the last twenty years of my life to working with families and young children to help parents create a loving and harmonious environment in which their children can thrive.

My career in psychology started in 1994 working at La Casa de Las Madres, a shelter for battered women in San Francisco. I am fluent in Spanish, Portuguese and English languages. There I counseled women and guided them in the process of rebuilding their lives after the separation from their abusive partners.

In 2000, I finished graduate school in clinical psychology at SFSU, I began to work at the Infant-Parent Program (IPP) at UCSF. At IPP I learned about the importance of early childhood mental health and its impact on the rest of a person’s psychological development. I did outreach at several pre-schools, as a Mental Health Consultant and as a Child-Parent psychotherapist. After almost 3 years at IPP, I went to work at UCSF, the Child Trauma Research Project (CTRP), with Dr. Alicia Lieberman, a leading Trauma researcher in the US.

My work is to guide and support parents in becoming a secure base from which children can grow and become competent and happy human beings.
