Rev. Sue Fiandach


Susan is an EC Certified* professional psychic-medium and teacher of psychic-medium studies at The Purple Door.  Her services include psychic-medium readings, past lives readings, health intuitive readings, telephone, reading parties, and Reverend services.   Sue is co-owner of The Purple Door and co-author of "Everyday Conversations" classes, lectures and book series.

Susan has been experiencing spirits since she was a young child, and feeling fearful she blocked out this information being received. It wasn't until her early 40’s after she became gravely ill and had a near death encounter that she allowed those experiences again. What happened wasn't an opening of a special gift or ability but the ending of fear, the very fear that had stopped all the communication she knew as a child. This experience, diligent work and easy communication style allows her readings to be a powerful healing and comforting experience.

Gregg Soucie

- In Memoriam

On June 16, 2016, we lost a dear friend and colleague, Gregg Soucie. We called him "Gregg of God" because he first came to The Purple Door after describing to a friend "what do I do with this?" He was referring to his hands of incredible healing energy that "turned on" after his return from an after-death experience. He was ready to work, to provide healing to others. His hugs did it physically, his sense of humor did it emotionally, and his healing and mediumship did it energetically. One way or another, he helped others to understand this world or cross over to the next. He had amazing experiences that he loved to share with us. He was in awe of the universe.

Gregg loved the energy in gemstones and rocks, and had a knack of making them into beautiful pendants or stand up on each other at Corbett's Glen. He loved to show people their energy, showing them with his hands and their hands. He empowered people. He empowered me. He empowered The Purple Door. As a healer, teacher, mentor and jack-of-all-trades when it came to renovating, moving things around, fixing the computer or decorating. He got the job done, helping to work through all of our challenges. He was always there, with a donut, a coffee or a smile! I didn't know all his challenges, however. I knew him as one who helped me through mine. I wish I could have been there for him. So, in his memory and honor, I'll keep a light on at the "spiritual store" I knew he loved. I look forward to “hearing from him” and his continued strength and love.
