Mary Occhino, a lifelong New York resident, is a gifted psychic-medium with a diverse following from around the world. In 1992, Mary was diagnosed with relapsing and remitting multiple sclerosis (MS), which is controlled through diet and breakthrough medicine. Strangely enough, MS has heightened her senses and made her abilities even more pronounced.
Early in 2002, Mary met Dr. Gary Schwartz, a Harvard educated scientist, dedicated to the study of psychic phenomenon. Previously, he had conducted clinical research on John Edward, George Anderson, and others as a fundamental research for his book, "The Afterlife Experiments." Shortly after meeting Mary, Dr. Schwartz began scientific trials to evaluate Mary's gift. What he discovered was shocking to even his trained eye: Mary provided evidence that her gift was indeed a proven entity. Since then, Mary has broadened her reach by conducting seminars and using her talent to help her clients as a psychic medium. Today, thousands of people around the world rely on Mary's guidance.
Mary was born in Brooklyn, New York and currently resides in eastern Long Island. Mary has appeared on many radio stations and television programs throughout the United States. She currently conducts seminars and private readings, the latter of which require booking at least six to seven months in advance.
Psychic medium Mary Occhino made her debut on the show, sharing her history, methodology and insights. In her initial experiments, decades ago, she used a Ouija board, and made contact with a benign spirit named "Quicksilver" who'd been a soldier in the Civil War.
