David Feinstein, Ph.D.

Peg Elliott Mayo was my first clinical supervisor in 1969, and at the time of this writing 44 years later, she remains among the most adept therapists I have had the good fortune to witness (and I have, in my own continued training, had opportunity to observe the best and the brightest; Carl Rogers, Virginia Satir, and Alexander Lowen to name three). Her ability to help people grapple effectively with the challenges of dreadful circumstances, difficult passages, and unfortunate biochemistry is often remarkable. I am not saying her work is magical—she is actually enormously practical and down to earth. What I am suggesting is that her work is profoundly empowering. Her clients often walk away with a new assessment of their circumstances, a cleaner window into their own motivations and possibilities, and an empowering vision of how to move forward.
