Evidential Mediums

Dave Campbell - Glendale, AZ

On Sunday, April 23rd, I was blessed to attend Helping Parents Heal meeting at the Unity of Phoenix. Medium Dave Campbell was there to do a reading for a group of parents hoping to get a validation from their child.

I was so pleased when my son Jacob Alvarado came through. David Campbell began talking about somebody playing the piano.  My son’s favorite thing before he died was his keyboard and he was teaching himself how to play just by watching YouTube. He was getting really good at it!!

Jacob learned a lot from YouTube, including how to construct his own bow and arrow, another validation from David Campbell. He told us about how Jacob loved to figure out how to make things on his own, take things apart and put them back together to see how they worked. This statement was so perfectly true for my son.

My favorite validation was when David Campbell mentioned that he was showing him a dog.  This brought tears to my eyes!! Naming a dog was the very last experience my son and I shared.  We rescued a dog that we were going to find a home for but my son decided he wanted to keep her. The last thing we did before his death was stay up late and playfully discuss what her name should be, and of course after his deathDave also validated that my son was with me as I looked through my pictures of him. He asked me about baseball and asked if there was a picture I replied “yes I had just been looking at that picture the other day” and David said “well he wants you to know that he was with you when you were looking at it” I felt so blessed for this wonderful experience and want to give a big thank you to Dave Campbell.

I kept the dog. I feel she is my closest connection to him and David Campbell confirms that my son shared with him that he is still very attached to her.  This confirms the special bond I feel to her.

Jamie Clark - Phoenix, Arizona

Jamie furnished striking validations that strongly indicated the ongoing presence of our deceased son, Brandon. Jamie’s ability to deliver highly specific information and his compassionate nature played a major role in the healing of my family after Brandon’s passing. To that end, Jamie is one of four psychic mediums whose work is documented in my first book, Soul Shift.

Fara Gibson - Phoenix, AZ

I invited Tana Smith to come to see Fara Gibson today. She lost her son Joe 5 weeks ago. The story of his accident was all over the news. He and 3 other Horizon High School graduates were on the I-10 just outside of Quartzsite coming home from a trip to California when traffic slowed because a semi truck had hit a vehicle on the side of the freeway. Another semi didn’t see traffic had slowed and ran into the car Joe and his friends were in. The other 3 boys are recovering. I met Tana in 2012 just a few months after my Brittany died and we have only seen each other a few times since. She now says that she believes we met because of what was going to happen to her son. So when I saw that a medium would be at the meeting today, I messaged her this morning and she agreed to come…and brought her mom too.

Fara told Tana that she had a son who very recently died in an automobile accident from head and chest injuries. She also said that he has a sister, and that she held a rosary for him. This rosary has been passed down in the family for a long time. Fara was spot on for each detail.

As we thanked her and were saying goodbye, she told me that I was going to get the same tattoo that my daughter had. My appointment to do so is on August 10th!

Suzanne Giesemann

I highly recommend Suzanne Giesemann for anyone searching to connect with their loved ones who have crossed over. Suzanne connected me so purely with my precious daughter Carly during a phone session that for the first time since her physical death I felt as if we were in the same room! Evidence was presented to me that no one could have known, detail after detail left me speechless and overjoyed knowing that Carly is with me always. Suzanne has an amazing gift.

Debra Martin and Sheri Getten - Scottsdale, Arizona

Debra Martin has participated in scientific research studies on mediumship at the University of Arizona and the Windbridge Institute. These controlled experiments validated her ability to provide accurate and specific information about deceased persons without any sensory input.

I personally witnessed Debra’s amazing abilities, unintentionally serving as a proxy-sitter for an out-of-state friend whose brother had just died. Going into this I told Debra that my friend had lost a brother and nothing more. She correctly identified that the brother died instantaneously in a motorcycle crash, that a red ribbon had adorned his casket, and that his sister was concerned about his children, who he specifically identified as “the little kids” – the exact phrase he and his sister used when talking about his children. Later that evening, Debra spoke to my friend and correctly identified that her brother’s favorite food was pizza and thanked her for changing the music at his service from country, which he disliked, to rock & roll, which he loved.

Shannon Horton - Phoenix, AZ

I set an appointment with Kenny for April 17; at the Helping Parents Heal event with Medium Shannon Horton. I didn’t expect Kenny to come. Shannon began the session and after about an hour I got up to stretch my legs and left the room. I was only gone for about 15 minutes but when I returned to my seat neighbor said that Shannon had asked if I was coming back.

I wasn’t sure what that meant until she finished the reading for another parent and looked right at me and said that my son was here. She validated 1 his death by traumatic brain injury 2 his love for fast things and flying and 3 my daughter’s pregnancy. My daughter had become pregnant with a son in March of 2014, her due date had been October 29th, and coincidentally that was also Kenny’s Angelversary.

We were over the moon happy because we fully believed that the new baby was Kenny. My daughter was alive again and looking forward to this new chapter of her life and finally closing the old one. However in July she lost the baby and was forced to deliver our beautiful baby Baylor, born sleeping. She fell into a tailspin and barely made it out alive. As I explained this to Shannon, she said that Baylor WAS Kenny. That he was coming to help her heal but knew that Baylor would be born with medical issues and he didn’t want to burden my daughter with a life like that, so he exited.

Shannon said that Kenny would come again through her next pregnancy and that he would then be with us forever. I was in shock as she explained that sprits and loved ones sometimes do that. It sounded incredible. Kenny was done for now and I began to sort through the information and tried to process it. I was grateful that Shannon was recording the session because I would have never been able to repeat or recall what she said. Toward the end of the session, Kenny interrupted another reading to come back again. Shannon asked if anyone knew a Kenny; please take note that I NEVER mentioned my sons name at all that day. When she said Kenny, I looked around the room, assuming that someone else knew a Kenny, but there wasn’t anyone. It was then that I raised my hand and claimed him. He came back to tell me to stop doubting the messages that I have been receiving.

Melinda Kushner - Norco, CA

Hi, my name is Jennifer Verboom.  Recently I had the pleasure of attending a Spiritual Question and Answer Forum being filmed for a documentary in Norco, Ca. I knew there would be two renown mediums who would take questions and give much needed answers. Also there would be a drawing for two free readings that night.

Melinda Kushner and Paul Jacobs are both renown Spiritual Mediums and they were taking questions and enlightening us about the spiritual world. One thing they had said which stood out to me was that the soul leaves the body at the same time as death occurs, so there is never any pain in death. Overall it was so interesting.

Afterwards, we got to meet Melinda and Paul and they were both so warm and comforting. Melinda offered a reading to me and my friend at a later date and we were both thrilled.

Yesterday, March 14th, was such an amazing day!! Melinda Kushner sat down with me and it was like a phone call from heaven. My handsome son came through right away with his big smile and silly personality. He even made Melinda laugh.

I have always believed and always knew I would see my loved ones again. I lost my dad in 1985 and my mom in 1998. My son passed in 2016. My heart was broken. I needed and wanted validation, even though I knew he was with me.

One thing I had prayed for was that he was with my mom and dad. Melinda validated that for me in such detail. It took my breath away. I left there with a feeling of fulfillment. Does it still hurt? Of course it does and always will, we’ve lost a child. But now I know my son is truly watching over his family and is always near. He’s at peace. I am so grateful.

Daisy Mae Moore - London, UK

I am grateful to have had healing readings from some of the best psychic mediums.  I know that Morgan and Chelsea are happy and healthy and that they are very busy on the other side.  However, I decided to book a reading with Daisy Mae Moore because she came highly recommended, she is easy to schedule, and she is affordable to parents.  I had my reading on April 7th.

The reading was very good, and Daisy Mae brought through not only Morgan and Chelsea but also their brother, a little boy that I carried for only 12 weeks.  Daisy had no way of knowing this.

Morgan came through with healing energy.  Daisy told me after the reading that instead of making her uptight, she felt as though she had drunk a glass of red wine after connecting to him.  Very chilled and easy going, just as he was in life.  She also told me that he was a sensitive soul and always thinking of others; if he was injured, he would tell others to check on someone else before taking care of him. This is very true.

Morgan also spoke of the day he died and told Daisy many of the things that other mediums have already verified, including the fact that he heard every word when he was undergoing CPR and I spoke to him by phone, which reassured me. Daisy felt as though he had a head injury (Morgan’s brain swelled because of altitude sickness), she said that he was with two other boys (his roommates stayed in Lhasa until my husband was able to arrive), she told me that he passed during the daytime, that it was accidental and unexpected and that it had been because of a mistake on someone else’s part.  Moreover, she told me that Morgan had hung on for seven hours before he passed.  All of this is also true.  Lastly, Daisy said that someone was holding his right hand when he passed, which is a comfort to me.

One thing that stood out was that Daisy said ‘Why do I feel like he has some connection to a teddy bear’?  Morgan’s nickname on his cheerleading squad was Big Bear because of the enormous bear hugs he would give.  His room is overflowing with teddy bears that we have brought home in his memory since he passed.

Daisy told me that Morgan was showing her the last vacation that we took together as a family before he passed.  He showed her a concrete walk beside the sea, lots of greenery and a town that has small streets but that is very modern.  We traveled to La Grande Motte, France, in August 2009 right before he went to study in China.  This is where Morgan’s paternal grandparents have had a home since 1975 and where Morgan was conceived, and it is, therefore, a very special place for all of us.  Not only is it green and lush; his grandfather is also proud to have added beautiful palm trees throughout the main thoroughfares as a member of the town council.

One of the most beautiful things about the reading and something that Daisy had never before experienced was that Morgan brought through other children towards the end of the reading.  These children belong to parents with whom I have been in touch with, and they thanked me for helping their Moms.

One was a beautiful young girl who died by suicide, whose Mother I had just met the night before.  Another was a young man who died of a gang-related gunshot wound, who has two brothers here on earth who also wanted to thank me for helping his Mom.  He also said that he had left things unsaid with his Dad, with whom he did not have a relationship. Daisy stated that she had never seen other children in spirit bring through kids from the other side.  But it makes sense because I know that Morgan’s job is to help children connect with their parents.

The last thing that Morgan let me know through Daisy is that he has everything under control.  He is taking good care of his brother and sister in spirit as well as if all the other children that are a part of this group.  Knowing this brings me enormous comfort.

After the reading, I was able to spend time talking to Daisy Mae, and I learned more about her gift. She is also a bereaved mom; her son passed when he was only four days old, 36 years ago.  She has since devoted her gift to helping other bereaved parents heal.

Chuck Murphy

Chuck Murphy has been a tremendous help to me and to so many in my group. In fact, I often buy his sessions is “packs of 5” (and he will give me a discount) and then I usually gift most of them away to people I feel are needy but cannot afford him (he is not expensive but even $75 can be a stretch for some, especially if they are not quite sure he can help) Yet he always does. Many people to whom I “gift” sessions later become full time clients. I highly recommend him. He is a medium, a spiritual counselor and much more. He always knows what you need that day. He does Skype and phone as well.

- Tracy Venters

Mark Nelson - Los Angeles, California

We’ve invited Mark to speak at the Logos Center several times and also scheduled personal readings for him. His schedule filling so quickly we had to create a wait list. People shared wonderful feedback regarding his helpfulness and accuracy. We also presented at a conference with him in 2011 and the response was excellent, so we invited him to present at the 2012 International Conference on After Death Communication. The feedback there was better still. We then co-hosted a radio show with him and he gave messages to people who called in, which were caring and accurate.

Tina Powers - Tucson, Arizona

Tina gave me the best, most compelling reading I’ve ever had – and I’ve met with some of the top mediums in the world. What made my session even more impressive is that I came in unannounced, accompanying a friend who had booked the reading. Tina knew nothing about me except that my first name was Mark, a fact revealed as I entered her front door. Tina correctly noted that I’d been praying on my way down to Tucson, asking for a clear connection with my loved ones. She then correctly noted that my father had been a psychic medium and that he had used blindfolds in his ESP demonstrations. She then visualized herself being taken east across the Atlantic Ocean to Ireland. I then shared that my last name is ‘Ireland’. She then noted visions of a church, which was correct as both my father and uncle had churches. Tina then provided a series of strong validations from my deceased son Brandon, delivering a statement in his exact tone and intonation. It was almost like I was talking directly to my son at that moment.

Nicole Reilly

Nicole Reilly was recommended to me by Suzanne Giesemann, Messenger of Hope, whose husband Ty had just done a reading with her.  Suzanne was blown away by the detail that Nicole brought through to Ty.

I had the good fortune of having a reading with Nicole a few days later.  She clearly brought through all three of my children in spirit and she talked a great deal about Morgan, who addressed me as ‘Maman’ (this is French for Mom and I was always ‘Maman’ to him) and told me that he had a very special name-that it was significant because he is named after two other beloved people in his life.  One of these names started with a ‘J’.  His full name is Morgan James Pierre Boisson and James is his maternal grandfather and Pierre is his paternal grandfather.  Morgan told her that he was very proud of the name and of the close-knit family to which he belongs.

Morgan said that he was taking good care of his brother and sister on the other side and that he loved having them with him.  He was always an amazing big brother and older cousin to all of the kids in our family so this resonates with me.

He told me that he just recently welcomed another person that he didn’t know but that was connected to me.  My daughter’s best friend’s mum just passed yesterday in the UK and we all knew that she would be connecting with Morgan.

Nicole asked about our dogs and said that Morgan is also taking care of them on the other side.  We have had 4 dogs pass since he transitioned so this is also a comfort to me.

Nicole told me that there is quite a difference in age between Morgan and his surviving sisters.  It is true that there is a 4-year difference between Morgan and Alix and a 6-year between Morgan and Christine since I had a miscarriage at 12 weeks pregnancy and then Chelsea passed 2 days after she was born, between Morgan and Alix.

Morgan told me though Nicole that he did not suffer when he died-he had already crossed over and was with Chelsea.  She also to me that he was like a big brother to all he met here on earth-she said that he was very tall, which is true, he measured 6’6″.  And that he was always taking care of people.  She also said that he was a very old soul which is something that I have heard many times before and that he shares an incredibly strong heart connection with me.

All of this is true and I enjoyed speaking with Nicole.  She is compassionate, uplifting and a very bright light.  I highly recommend her to anyone who would like to have a reading.

Christine Salter - Phoenix, Arizona

My son Hunter passed away January 20 2014. It was a long, sad, lonely, devastating, isolating first year without him. My love for my son was like no other – a bond stronger than I knew existed. He was larger then life, fun, enthusiastic, compassionate, loving, full of life and a sense of humor like no other. He made people feel special and loved. His sisters Danielle and Nancy and his daughter Lola were blessed to have him brighten their lives with his warm loving heart… He really was and is a true angel. I miss him dearly and always look for signs…

I was so fortunate to have the opportunity to meet Christine Salter when I went to a Helping Parents Heal meeting held at Unity of Phoenix. She is an amazing psychic/medium. I was so delighted and excited when I Christine described Hunter as “very much alive, vibrant, and the life of the party”, and “with such a good sense of humor”. She really captured the true essence of him in so many ways, and the feelings I have and things I think about him ~ she truly validated. I felt like Hunter was there with me and my sadness, loneliness and isolation was filled with a sense of joy…I know my sweet angel is always with me and is not suffering anymore. I want to thank Christine for giving me that gift..

Jake Samoyedny

Jake connected me with my daughter in an AMAZING reading yesterday; his information was just incredible. I’ve been going over the evidential details he gave me both about her life and death on earth and what she is up to now, in her “elsewhere.” He nailed so many things, my head is still spinning. He described her personality perfectly – or I should say, SHE came through loud and clear, larger than life (which she always was). Jake totally zeroed in on her, offering details about her past, her illness, her pet name, and her last days he could not possibly have known – things even I didn’t know but make total sense in context. I was so excited and relieved to hear that she is continuing the work she did and loved here on earth, that she is happy and fine, that she feels close to us. My despair at losing her is so much less, I feel a quietness and peace that allowed me to sleep easily last night for the first time since her death. I can’t wait to get my CD and listen to it.

Carrie Shubert - Scottsdale, AZ

My son came through today at the monthly meeting of Helping Parents Heal – Phoenix/Scottsdale with Psychic Medium Carrie Shubert and the reading was very specific to me. Carrie mentioned my son’s blue room where all the furniture was custom painted blue – not common, particularly where Alex passed in Idaho and we moved here and set up the room the way it was there, with all his things, sports equipment, gaming consoles, and clothing. Carrie also saw him “pulling stuff out of a hutch” in the room and I knew exactly what she meant.  Though this might sound extreme, to still have our son’s room and things, I’ve learned that everyone needs to deal with their loss as best as they can, and this has helped our family.

Carrie also said that she could see our son in front of our fridge and in our brown cabinets/granite kitchen. Not only is the color scheme right, but Bubs was ALWAYS opening the fridge doors and staring into the fridge. I understand that a lot of teens do that but that was very significant to us, as he’d hang on the doors and I was afraid they’d come unhinged. I’m glad to see he’s still doing this and he can tear off the doors if he wants too, now.

Carrie also talked about “the brown dog”.  Bernie passed away a few months ago and he was Alex’s dog.  When we purchased Bernie, our two sons had flipped a coin and Alex won and got to choose the puppy from the litter. This was just barely 6 months before we lost Alex. Bernie’s little head is in Alex’s hand in the picture here. The other picture shows a full-grown Bernie. I was amazed when Carrie also mentioned that our dog talked, as it was absolutely true.  We used to tell him:  “Bernie, speak!”, and he always did. My closest friends all have heard him and he’d respond even when we told him in Spanish.  I still have him recorded doing that or singing to my husband when playing the harmonica.

I didn’t record my reading but these are the things that stand out the most to me right now. The biggest? That our son said “I miss you, Momma”. Thank you, Carrie! I hope to have a private reading with you soon. Thanks for arranging Carrie’s visit, Elizabeth! Love you!

Judith Hancox

Judi is an amazing healer. I visited her a few months before my daughter’s death, when my world was caving in. She spent well over my allotted time with me, and went out of her way to make sure I had the emotional tools and spiritual information needed to support me in the journey I was on. She has kept in touch with me regularly, with unending love and concern. She is highly professional, meticulously competent, and deeply compassionate. She has given me a bedrock of support and security during a very tumultuous and unpredictable time of my life, for which I am humbly grateful. I recommend her highly as a healer and companion for any who seek solace, strength, and increased spiritual enlightenment.

Dr. Mark Pitstick - Chillicothe, Ohio

I met Dr. Mark Pitstick for the first time at a meeting of Helping Parents Heal in Scottsdale in 2015.  My grief was very new at that time for I had only lost my son a few months earlier.  I desperately wanted answers.  My husband and I were so comforted and impressed with what he had to say.  I then purchased his books, ‘Soul Proof’ and ‘The Eleven Questions-Everything You want to Know about Life, Death and the Afterlife’.  It makes perfect sense!  He also has a column in our Helping Parents Heal monthly newsletter.  He is just brilliant.  I highly recommend his books and if possible attending an evening where he will be speaking.

David Router

Hello, my name is Carol Allen, I have been a member of Helping Parents Heal since May of 2015 when my beautiful 19-year- old son, Tyler Allen, gained his angel wings in a tragic accident.

I was fortunate to win a raffle at the Helping Parents Heal meeting in June. The prize was a three-day workshop taught by David Router to help master our life energy.   My 24-year- old son TJ attended the seminar with me as well.  TJ has struggled this past year terribly and has not been able to deal with the grief of losing his younger brother.  They were all very close.

Shortly after Tyler’s passing, TJ had some psychic experiences and saw his brother.  However it only lasted a few months, and his grief blocked any ability for him to communicate with Tyler; that is until we attended David’s workshop.

On the final day of the workshop, as we left TJ told me that he had the most incredible spiritual experience of his life.  David taught him to clear his negative blockages to enable him to communicate with Tyler.  During the last session, TJ said that numerous events flashed before him and he was able to clearly see Tyler pick him up and carry him to a safe place one night after he had passed out in an alley.  He also saw Tyler take the wheel of his car and keep him safe after he had an accident and totaled his car a few months ago. The police officer stated that he couldn’t believe that TJ walked away without a scratch.

Tyler said, “We are still a family now and forever, I will always be there, someday when it is your time, you will understand.”  Lastly, he said, “Tell mom thank you for cleaning my room.”  I had spent the day cleaning his room; TJ was completely unaware of this.  We were both crying as he told me all of these things.  I do not have the same abilities as TJ, however, I can say that as I have continued to practice the exercises that David taught me during the workshop, I have noticed that my intuition seems stronger, and I have a stronger sense of inner peace.

David explained that like working with weights, results would get better and better with time and the continuation of the exercises that David taught me. I will be able to lead a happier and more fulfilling life even though I have endured the most horrific thing that any parent can go through.  David Router is incredible, and I am very grateful.

Susanne Wilson - Carefree, Arizona

Susanne is the best medium I’ve been to and she was an enormous help after the tragic loss of my son, Morgan. She conducted a reading for a friend just a few weeks after Morgan died, where she clearly brought through my son’s personality and mannerisms. She also told my friend several things that no one else knew. I was comforted by this information and booked a reading with her and Suzanne again brought Morgan through with great clarity. This was the most healing experience I’ve had since my son passed. Soon after I founded a parent support group and Susanne has helped many members and generously donated her time to the group. She has spoken to our Phoenix/Scottsdale Affiliate group on 4 separate occasions.

Therapists

Dr. Abby Garcia - Scottsdale, AZ

The evening of Austin’s passing my older son, Alex, said, “I think we should all get counseling”, so I began to look for one covered through our insurance. We were able to get in to see Abby Garcia within a week, when she had a cancellation. Initially, all three of us saw her together. Within a short time, Alex preferred not to go with my husband and I. Jay and I continued to see her for over a year, usually together. One of the first things she shared with us is the reason so many marriages don’t last after the loss of a child, is that you will not be experiencing the same thing at the same time or in the same way. Being aware of that is so important along the way. Dr. Garcia was so good at explaining to us, in a scientific way, what was going on with our heads and bodies concerning our grief. She would give us information about what to be prepared for in the coming weeks and months. I’m not sure how we would have navigated the first year without Dr. Garcia’s help. She also leads group sessions for bereaved parents, although we never attended the group sessions.

She spent well over my allotted time with me, and went out of her way to make sure I had the emotional tools and spiritual information needed to support me in the journey I was on. She has kept in touch with me regularly, with unending love and concern. She is highly professional, meticulously competent, and deeply compassionate. She has given me a bedrock of support and security during a very tumultuous and unpredictable time of my life, for which I am humbly grateful. I recommend her highly as a healer and companion for any who seek solace, strength, and increased spiritual enlightenment.

Linda M McCarthy, Ph.D - Anthem, AZ

I highly recommend Linda to anyone who is going through a difficult time.  She is a bereaved mom and gives her time as a Caring Listener to Helping Parents Heal.  She is also intuitive, compassionate and filled with valuable insight.  It is often difficult to find a therapist who identifies with the journey that we all share.  Linda not only understands, she also offers constructive tools to help us heal.

Dr. Mark Pitstick - Chillicothe, Ohio

I met Dr. Mark Pitstick for the first time at a meeting of Helping Parents Heal in Scottsdale in 2015.  My grief was very new at that time for I had only lost my son a few months earlier.  I desperately wanted answers.  My husband and I were so comforted and impressed with what he had to say.  I then purchased his books, ‘Soul Proof’ and ‘The Eleven Questions-Everything You want to Know about Life, Death and the Afterlife’.  It makes perfect sense!  He also has a column in our Helping Parents Heal monthly newsletter.  He is just brilliant.  I highly recommend his books and if possible attending an evening where he will be speaking.
