ATLANTA — A native New Yorker, Theresa Caputo found her claim to fame while starring on TLC’s “Long Island Medium,” which kicked off its latest season in early October.

On Sunday, the psychic medium and star stops by the Fox Theatre for audience readings while sharing her personal stories and unique perspective.

“The Fox Theatre, I have to say — Atlanta was my favorite stop,” Caputo said. “The Fox is absolutely amazing. I find the more people (in the venue) the crazier it is. It’s incredible how every person may not get a reading, but they will call it a life-changing experience.”

The live experience lasts approximately two-and-a-half hours. Caputo starts the show letting the audience know how the experience will happen, how ghosts communicate and some of her background.

“I can only channel so many souls, that’s why it’s an experience,” she said. “I give a speech about how I became a medium and how spirits communicate in a large crowd. The actual readings take about an hour and a half. It’s really awesome.”

She said she encounters spirits every day since she cannot “turn off” her abilities — and each time is different.

“Every time I connect with a spirit, it’s absolutely incredible,” Caputo said.

The New Yorker began to see spirits when she was 4 years old. She learned how to deal with her abilities by meeting with a healer. Even to this day, she understands it is sometimes hard for those without the ability to understand the other side.

“It’s hard for me to describe because I see, hear and feel things differently than we do in the physical world,” Caputo said. “My wish for every person I come in contact with, is that they receive a message that with give them healing and closure to embrace life without their loved ones.”

On Oct. 1, Caputo released a book, “There’s More to Life Than This.” Her inspiration for putting her life on pages was to help people.

“I wanted people to know that there is more love with them even after death,” she said. “What I loved about the book is that it isn’t about me, it’s not about people believing in mediums, but having faith. I think the message is hope.”
