Our approach for the investigation is to use scientific, measurable methods to look first for logical explanations for the phenomena in your home or business.
We use our equipment to record and capture as much scientific evidence as possible while performing our investigations. Those findings are scrutinized carefully using a rational, scientific and logical approach.
We present our findings and explanations to you, our client, at a follow up meeting. Our hope being that we provide you with proper guidance and enough information as to the nature of your situation to help ease your mind and create a livable situation. There is never a charge for what we do.
If the situation requires special attention we will not abandon our client but will help find the appropriate professional in the area of expertise that is needed.
We do not use Ouija boards, dousing rods or any metaphysical approach during our investigation and we ask that you inform us if any of these approaches have previously been attempted. We make no judgement for those who do use such methods it is just not our approach. While we do occasionally sage a home, we do not perform cleansings of homes or locations.
We NEVER charge for our services and no member will ever ask for a donation or show up unsolicited. Our goal is to help you.

What is …?
Paranormal (adj.) Beyond the range of normal experience or scientific explanation.
There are two types of a haunting:
Residual haunting is thought by some to be a replayed haunting (a recording) in which no intelligent ghost, spirit, or other entity is directly involved. Much like a video tape, residual hauntings are playbacks of auditory, visual, olfactory, and other sensory phenomenon which are attributed to a traumatic event, life-altering event, or a common event of a person or place, like an echo of past events.
Intelligent haunting: Which means that these “ghosts” may know they are dead, and are more than likely trying to interact with you. Either by EVPs, photos, knockings, tappings, moving objects or lights flickering.
A ghost – or spirit or apparition – is the energy, soul or personality of a person who has died and has somehow remained or become stuck between this plane of existence and the next. Most researchers believe that in some cases these spirits may not know they are dead. Very often they have died under traumatic, unusual or highly emotional circumstances. Ghosts can be perceived by the living in a number of ways: through sight (apparitions), sound (voices), smell (fragrances and odors), touch – and sometimes they can just be sensed.
Pareidolia is a psychological phenomena in which the mind responds to a stimulus (an image or a sound) by perceiving a familiar pattern where none exists; the tendency to perceive a specific, often meaningful image in a random or ambiguous visual pattern or hearing indistinct voices in random noise such as that produced by air conditioners or fans. Sometimes referred to as matrixing.
Electronic voice phenomena (EVP) are electronically generated noises that resemble speech, but are not the result of intentional voice recordings or renderings and are not heard at present time. They are heard only upon playback on electronic equipment.
There are 3 main classes of EVPs.
Class A: These are, by far, the best audio evidence. They are loud,heard clearly without the use of headphones and listeners will generally form a consensus about what is being said. “Class A” EVP’s require no additional enhancement or amplification.
Class B: The most common type of EVP. This type of EVP is less easily understood, still very audible but most times only by using a headphone. Generally speaking, these often need some amount of enhancement or amplification to be heard distinctly. The voice heard is usually not clear enough to be easily understood. Some may disagree over what it said to the degree that they may question what language it is in.
Class C: The lowest quality EVP still considered as viable and will scarcely be heard without the aid of headphones, filtering or extensive enhancement. These generally will still not be heard as any recognizable word/phrase. In many cases, these may be indiscernible and very speculative or unnoticed without drastically speeding up or slowing down the recording. It may often be questionable as to whether there is even a legitimate EVP on the recording in the first place as it could easily be confused with other, natural noises such as shuffling feet or various mechanical sounds.
