Karen Prisant Ellis has worked as a forensic psychic for local, state and federal law enforcement agencies, as well as attorneys and families for over thirty five years. She has been responsible for uncovering numerous leads in murder and missing person cases, some of which are many years old. Even the most astute detectives had been baffled by her abilities. She is known throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Europe with a reputation of utmost integrity and accuracy in her specialized work. When Karen was a young child, she didn’t realize that other people weren’t aware of the Spiritual Supernatural World. Her mother used to come into her bedroom and ask her, “Who are you talking to now?” This was very odd to her. She thought everyone could see Grandma Mary’s spirit. Years later, she realized that she was going in and out of trance, coming and going from the supernatural world. As a result, the physical and spiritual supernatural was always one world to her. She could slip into them as easily as a bird flying from tree to tree. At the age of twenty-one, she was one of two Americans selected by Borocourt Hospital, an institution in Peppard Commons, England to conduct music therapy studies. She demonstrated American Behavioral Therapy, the B.F. Skinner Approach, with non-verbal autistic adolescent boys. She combined this form of therapy with her gifts of telepathy. She then went on to present her research conclusions at the annual conference of the British Association of Psychiatry. Growing up Karen always loved the TV show, Perry Mason. It was actually no surprise when one day she ended up doing detective work. The spirits of murdered victims communicated with her, and when necessary she went to the actual crime scene. Police artists have sketched renderings of guilty perpetrators she has clairvoyantly seen in her visions, and in many cases, witnesses have identified the guilty suspects from these drawings. Her first case was a homicide committed in the Ohio State Department Building. A woman was stabbed to death, then tied up with her panty hose, following a meeting with the Governor. Karen’s involvement initially seemed out of the blue, but now many years later, she realizes it was all part of her destiny, and each of her cases prepared her for the next. Looking for missing people became a natural evolution. The most gruesome of homicide cases were Satanic Ritual murders. This was a forefront in the 1980’s, and she was consulted by all levels of law enforcement such as the NYPD, LAPD, even the Florida FBI, just to mention a few. Karen has also proven to be a great help to troubled families. Through her spiritual gifts in telepathy, she’s drawn out comatose patients to minimal communication skills, and some have even progressed to miraculous recoveries. Her work in music therapy and spiritual healing has also encompassed those with severe mental, emotional and physical disabilities, hyperkinetic self abusive people, including the autistic, ranging in all ages from infancy to old age. During the course of her career, she has also been called upon by parapsychologists and frightened families as a Spiritualist Minister and Medium, to communicate with earthbound spirits, (commonly known as poltergeists) to determine why they are present. One of her most important accomplishments was the spiritual clearing of many earthbound spirits from the Ground Zero Museum in New York City. She has appeared on numerous television programs, as well as on more than one hundred shows across America and abroad. (see resume for partial listing). Karen Prisant Ellis has very special gifts, which thankfully, she uses for helping mankind.

1. Chief Ray Folsom, Police Chief 25 years, Law Enforcement 47 years, -
"I first worked with Karen in 1990. It never ceases to amaze me how Karen clues into cases and has such concern and caring for the families and their peace."
2. Misty Rowe, Hee Haw Honey for 19 years, Actress, Playwright, Director -
"Brilliant beyond belief, an Angel of Accuracy with Psychic Abilities that Defy the Unknown. Karen Prisant Ellis is the most powerful psychic I have ever known for over 30 years."
3. Gloria Loring, Singer, Songwriter, Author, Actress -
"I have known Karen for 15 years and have witnessed her special intuitive talent at work. She is always insightful, definitive and compassionate. In short, she's the real deal."
4. Smokey Robinson, Singer and Songwriter - From: Smokey, Inside My Life by Smokey Robinson.
"To Karen. I believe the Lord has put you in my life. You've helped me so much spiritually. I'm glad (no very very happy) that you're my friend. Thanks. May God continue to bless and keep you. Love You, Smokey. "
5. Wendy Devore, Wife of Gary Devore, Missing Screenwriter, Actress, Former Model -
"Karen was thankfully introduced into my life during the most stressful event I'd ever encountered. My husband Gary had disappeared off the face of the earth. As a psychic and medium specializing in missing persons, she had a solid and positive reputation by all, including the authorities. Because of this, I allowed her to guide me through unimaginable and painful scenarios, presented to me regarding his disappearance. Without Karen's help and clarity I don't know what I would've done. A year later, the authorities said they had found Gary. A skeleton, dressed in Gary's clothing, was found inside his SUV, in the CA Aqueduct. Karen insisted it wasn't Gary, even though the authorities insisted it was. DNA later proved it wasn't him. Karen has continued to be a valuable ally in my husband's case.
6. Joan Kovats, In the entertainment industry for 50 years.
"I have known Karen for 35 years. Her ethical, caring and astounding abilities are unsurpassed. She has helped me tremendously, guiding me in directions that have attributed to my long career in show business. Personally she's been an incredible resource."
7. Gary Marlon Suson, Founder of the Ground Zero Museum Workshop in NYC.
"The 9/11 Museum had some unexplained phenomena and occurrences going on that became more than coincidental after numerous instances. With a very "charged" Museum such as ours, you expect certain things, but this was interrupting business and scaring the employees. A friend knew of Karen and suggested we reach out. Whatever doubts I may have had about people with her type of 'gift' were quickly erased when after a few minutes she shocked me by asking me, what was on the other side of the Museum wall in a small alleyway? I told her nothing was there and she insisted something was there and then told me the colors of it. My jaw fell open because there was indeed an artifact out there that no one could see or even knew about. It was covered up, yet she knew it was there and the colors exactly. The problem we were having in the Museum was connected to this strange artifact from Ground Zero, and she handled the problem. What Karen does is not really explainable, yet you have to witness it in person and even then you will be dumbfounded. She has a special gift and does good things with it. And we wish her continued success with affecting lives in a positive manner.
