About Elaine

I have worked in the metaphysical field for 44 years as a medium, healer, spiritual counselor and teacher. I was trained in the tradition of Spiritualism’s foremost early thinkers as a student of renowned medium and teacher Reverend Edith Sandy Wendling. Rev. Wendling was herself a student of England’s Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and his wife Lady Doyle. The Doyles were the most prominent proponents of modern Spiritualism in its earlier years in addition to Sir Arthur’s fame as the author of the Sherlock Holmes mysteries.

Rev. Wendling, a native of England, was a long time student of the Doyles and brought both their training and her mediumship gifts to the United States. She became one of Spiritualist’s the most renowned mediums, founded a seminary and church and taught thousands until shortly before her death at the age of 100.

Ordained in 1974 as a Spiritualist minister, I remain a committed seeker of spiritual truth and personal growth as a lifelong pursuit.

I was classically educated and in 1975 completed a Bachelor of Science degree in education at the University at Buffalo. I taught school at the elementary and middle school levels for seven years as a Reading Specialist. During those years I also completed a Masters in Counseling from Canisius College in Buffalo, New York where my studies focused upon the integration of death and dying issues, grief counseling, and my personal experiences with the transformative gifts of mediumship and spiritual healing.

In 1976 I became a Registered Medium at American Spiritualism’s foremost community, Lily Dale Assembly. Currently the longest continuously registered Medium on the grounds of the Assembly, I continue a very active practice of private readings for people from all over the world. I see clients at my office in Lily Dale, and also do readings over the phone and on video through Skype.

Lily Dale is located in South Western New York State, near Fredonia New York, USA.

In 1988, I co-founded and became co-director of The School of Spiritual Healing & Prophecy and Foundational Pastor of Fellowships of the Spirit, which is a non-denominational Spiritualist Church. For the past 31 years we have trained and ordained spiritual healers and mediums from around the United States and Canada.

I have guest lectured at Colleges and Universities and have also been a guest on numerous TV and radio shows throughout the U.S. over the years.
