When Tony LeRoy was 3, he saw his grandmother. She was talking. The only problem was, she had been dead for years.
“My mother laughed it off, so when it happened again, I kept it to myself,” Mr. LeRoy said recently in his fifth-floor walk-up on West 83rd Street. He leaned forward in his reproduction Eames lounge chair and confided, “It was my first psychic experience.”
He grew up in Flushing, Queens — his mother was a Haitian immigrant and his father had roots in Haiti, Canada and France. In true first-generation style, he has forged a singular American path as a dreadlocked “intuitive counselor” — the term he prefers to psychic — with an office on Lower Broadway and hundreds of clients, including celebrities like Isaac Mizrahi, who has described his experiences with Mr. LeRoy in magazines like W.
During his teenage years in Flushing, Mr. LeRoy, now 36, became fascinated by Manhattan, even though his family pretty much avoided it.
“I was the kid who always loved the city,” said Mr. LeRoy, looking down from his window at the building that Jerry Seinfeld spent five years renovating to house part of his collection of sports cars. “I’d cut school and come in and hang out in Greenwich Village. Everyone here seemed more open-minded than in Queens.”
It was about this time that he started taking his psychic experiences more seriously. He said he often found that he would be hanging out with one friend or another when he’d feel a stomachache coming on. He didn’t understand what was happening.

(Excerpt from article)
I recently got back in touch with an old friend named Melanie Stepto, who sent me to a tarot-card reader called Tony LeRoy. The reading began, and I immediately doubted this guy, who drew a picture of me to illustrate the problems I have with different parts of my body, something I suspect he does with everyone in order to focus. The reading turned out to be something of a revolution, becausefor the first time in my life, a psychic brought up my lovelife without my having to ask within the first 10 minutes. He said I was going to meet the man of my dreams sometime between the New Year and the spring. You can imagine my surprise and delight. And skepticism. I mean, what do I really know about this guy who draws pictures? Then a few days later, I was on the phone with Veronica Webb, who told me there was a psychic who told her two years ago that she would meet someone, marry him and have a daughter, all of which transpired. She was having difficulty remembering the psychic’s name, and finally she said something like, “He drew a picture of the baby.” I screamed. Suddenly my faith in psychics is stronger than ever. All I need now is a diamond ring.

“I have known Tony for almost a decade and from the first reading I had with him I knew I had found someone special. His words his predictions continue to come true years later. I have sent countless friends and they have only wonderful things to say. Tony is both insightful, funny, fun, smart and just a friend to all he meets. Anyone who gets to be in Tony’s presence is privileged. He is a gift straight from heaven. God bless him!!!”

“Tony LeRoy came into my life over six years ago – he was recommended through a friend – I was going through difficult time as my mother had passed away six months prior to my visit. My litmus test with Tony was if he didn’t bring up the fact that my mother had passed on – he wasn’t for me! He passed this litmus test will flying colors!
During that first visit he used “my mother” in the past tense and knew she was born under the sign of Cancer also she “wasn’t in the room with us” but I knew she would be soon enough and she showed up worrying about my sinus issues … (I’ve suffered through them for many years)
I’ve been seeing Tony a couple of times a year since then – along with his uncanny predictions he has also guided me through the learning process of clearing out the blockages we all have. Each time I visit him, I know I am growing stronger with his guidance. I do the work – he shows me the path and only suggests how to heal myself in all areas of my life. I am a different person than I was six years ago – Tony did change my life, but only in the sense that he has been acting as my mentor/spiritual guide to get me on the road to success in all areas of my life. We have become closer soul mates each time we meet.”

“I have been “experiencing” Tony for six years now, but it seems like I’ve known him for much longer. Each time we meet it’s like seeing an old friend. All through these years he’s always seen both me and my life quite clearly – and just like with old friends, it’s sometimes very annoying how well they know you! Tony has given me signposts and guideposts and hope for the future. He has taught me to trust my own intuition, to forgive my own frailties and to celebrate my strengths. He has also encouraged me for years to become a writer. Sometimes a wish or even talent is not enough motivation to change your life. It’s getting past the mountain of doubt and fear that is so daunting a task for one small elf. Having someone there to support and nurture you into the dream is invaluable. Tony is a treasure – my magic mirror on the wall…Now, with the help of his groundwork and no-nonsense guidance, I’ve finally become the confident ME that’s ready to take the leap.”
