Cari Roy has gained recognition as New Orleans most accurate and empathic psychic reader and medium. A third generation New Orleans psychic medium, Cari’s mother was a spiritualist practitioner and clairvoyant. Her maternal grandfather was a master astrologer and numerologist. This made her upbringing a fertile ground for what would be the blossoming of her own extra-sensory abilities. Her 30 plus years of experience have honed those talents to skills.
At the age of 7, Miss Roy was already displaying her psychic gifts, sensing spirits and past lives and foretelling events. She considers herself quite blessed to have had the encouragement of her elders in understanding and developing her gifts. “I believe that everyone is born psychic. It is just that many are discouraged and learn to fear it”. Participating in séances, learning all forms of divination, reading astrological charts, practicing automatic writing and dream interpretation were just some of the many aspects of her intense training. Her father’s profession, a lead basso with The New York City Opera Company, allowed her extensive travel and the opportunity to embrace cultural diversity in all of its marvelous expressions. Not only did this heighten her natural empathy but also gave her a well rounded understanding and appreciation of human experience and the eternal truths we all share.
In her late teens Cari knew without question that it was her calling to follow the family tradition of using her spiritual gifts to help others. Not taking this lightly, she went on to continue her education, attending university to study comparative religion, psychology and cultural anthropology. After completing school Cari settled briefly in England to pursue more spiritual practices and then on to Switzerland, the home of her maternal lineage. During that time Miss Roy felt that, at last, all of her knowledge and experience was ready to be put to practical use.
Cari Roy began her career as a professional psychic in New York City in the early 1980s. As word of her high accuracy, detailed information and engaging style spread, her clientele grew rapidly. She became known as a psychic’s psychic whose services have been sought by many colleagues. She is also the reader of choice for literally thousands of others ranging from celebrities to stay at home moms and from CEOs to psychoanalysts and everyone in between. “I love human being-ness and each and every one of my clients is of tremendous individual importance to me”. Miss Roy does not use cards or palms etc…. She prefers to give pure psychic and medium readings without the reliance on external devices. “I hope that one of the things I do best is to reject the cookie cutter approach to readings and provide real tangible information based on each clients unique circumstances, information that they can then use to create happiness, peace and fulfillment in their lives”. After much success in the northeast, Cari Roy left New York City to return to her true spiritual home, New Orleans.
“Growing up, I spent a lot of my time in New Orleans. My father’s surname is quite common in these parts and I spent most every summer and holiday here with family. I was always awe struck by the intense level of spiritual energy combined with the mysterious sense of timelessness of this city. I’d have visions of having lived here in the past and living here again in the future and I made a vow to settle back here when I completed my formal education”. In the late 1980s Miss Roy did return home to settle New Orleans and still resides in “America’s most magical city”. Considered to be an expert in her field, she has been featured as a lead psychic in several documentaries filmed in New Orleans. To date she has appeared in A&E’s Haunted Houses – Tortured Souls and Restless Spirits, The Travel Channel’s America’s Most Terrifying Places, Award winning ISPR’s New Orleans – Rich and Haunted, in an episode on the Today show with travel correspondent Peter Greenburg and celebrity parapsychologist Dr. Larry Montz and in Creative Health & Spirit Film’s The Many Faces Of Psychic Ability. Cari has also appears on local and national radio and news shows, been referenced in books about local culture and is in much demand for conventions and special events. In early 2012 she was a featured speaker aboard the annual Holland American World Cruise and, most recently, named “New Orleans most renowned psychic and New Orleans best psychic to see” by travelchannel.com and rated the number one psychic to see in the US by bbcamerica.com. Another highlight of Miss Roy’s career has been her work as a psychic medium in many high profile paranormal investigations of some of New Orleans most haunted landmarks including French Quarter hotels and restaurants, plantations and mansions and notable local author, Anne Rice’s, exclusive Garden District properties.
While feeling flattered and fortunate to have the opportunity to participate in various areas of the paranormal phenomena, Cari’s real love is to give psychic and medium readings. “Everybody has a purpose in life and mine has always been to help others. Not only is it my purpose, it is my passion. I feel honored to be able to connect with people on such a deep and meaningful level. It truly is my pleasure to be of service”. In New Orleans Cari still enjoys an active and growing clientele of visitors, locals, long time repeat clients and referrals. She offers in-person psychic and medium readings in New Orleans CBD and phone consultations, toll free, anywhere in the USA.
