In this episode of Paranormal Underground Radio, we talk with Dave Considine, founder and director of Phantasm Psychic Research and one of only a few lay religious demonologists in North America. Founded in 1994, Phantasm Psychic Research is an organization dedicated to aiding individuals and families whose lives have been affected by the supernatural and preternatural realms. Since its inception, Phantasm PSI has helped many persons who have found themselves in the grip of the beings that inhabit that realm of existence. Phantasm PSI investigates and corroborates accounts of supernatural activity and helps to bring closure to these instances by working with the proper authorities, usually the clergy.

In his 17-year career, Dave has investigated hundreds of hauntings and coordinated and assisted with dozens of exorcisms. Born and raised in rural Connecticut, he knew early on in life what he wanted to be. At the age of 12, he had a terrifying brush with the supernatural, an event that would alter the course of his life and spark an avid interest in the field of paranormal research.

Soon after, he decided he would dedicate his life to investigating the supernatural and preternatural, focusing his energies on ways to assist individuals and families victimized by entities from that realm. He studied under world-renown researchers Ed and Lorraine Warren and served as one of their chief investigators for nearly 14 years. After two active tours of duty with the US Armed Forces, he founded Phantasm Psychic Research and now divides his time between his own organization and being the assistant to Catholic exorcist Bishop Robert McKenna and Fr. Rama Coomarswamy, both of Connecticut.

Dave has handled cases of hauntings and demonic activity in all four corners of the United States and in Canada. He stands apart in his field due to his unique dedication to follow-up care for individuals and families once a case is resolved, and by his efforts to educate the public about the dangers of dabbling in the occult. He strongly believes that prevention via education is paramount to keeping the preternatural from affecting people's lives, and he frequently lectures and holds workshops.

"As a religious demonologist, I often see people at rock bottom - terrified, desperate. The most rewarding part of my job is helping them put their lives back together. I see the trauma they go through, and I help them to fight back, using their faith. I hate seeing people victimized by the demonic, but it's incredibly gratifying to watch them come back, more faithful and stronger than they've ever been before."

He attributes his success in his field to his strong faith in God and the support of his family and investigative team members.
