Premier Paranormal Researchers Pacific Coast Paranormal

A powerhouse investigator team, Pacific Coast Paranormal (PCP) is an organization consisting of some of the nation's leading paranormal investigators. By providing accurate and reliable evidence of the supernatural, they aim to help those living with paranormal activity or seeking answers to questions left unexplained by even today's modern science and technology. Jill Alexander Essbaum, Hausfrau, wrote: “It doesn’t matter whether you believe in ghosts. The ghosts believe in you.” Pacific Coast Paranormal is a team of professionals that take the time to investigate and document paranormal activity. They understand that the supernatural can be difficult to explain, and they strive to present evidence that can help those affected by paranormal activity find peace and understanding. Jill Alexander Essbaum's quote is a reminder of the power of the supernatural and how it can affect us all, regardless of our beliefs.

Founded by scientific researcher Stefan Brigati in 1991, the PCP team is a very experienced group of investigators and researchers, sensitives, psychics, videographers, photographers, engineers, and technicians dedicated to discovering why spirits remain here and do not move on. As a paranormal author, educator, podcast radio host, and reality TV personality, Stefan and his team members have decades of experience in paranormal investigations and have handled hundreds of cases, so they know what to look for to figure out why spirits remain in certain places. They use a variety of tools and techniques to collect evidence and uncover the truth.

Among them is Tara Mead, a tested and American Federation of Certified Psychics certified scrying medium and spirit photographer who is also the author of the acclaimed book, Spirit Photography: Seeing the Other Side.

Mead has been researching and practicing her craft for many years, and has worked with a range of clients, including communicating with people in the afterlife such as Patrick Swayze. She has developed an innovative, scientifically-backed method of photographing spirits and analyzing the images to provide insight into the spiritual world, demonstrating a success ratio of 95%. She is a recognized expert in her field, and her book is highly regarded as a source of knowledge in the paranormal world. Her teaching, counseling, and training have aided in the healing process of hundreds of clients, and she further serves the community via investigations, presentations and conventions all over the world. Aside from numerous other accolades including television appearances on A&E and the Travel Channel, the National Federation of Certified Psychics has awarded her work a five-star rating and a world ranking of #1! "I have healed an incredible amount of people that have lost loved ones that have passed away. This is never a test of faith, it is a gift from above that is given to me for healing the heart and soul from the horrific emotional pain associated with death," Tara explains. "Each and everyone that I encounter is for a reason. Having healed and educated so many by photographing their loved ones gives a true sense of the incredible beyond.
