When it comes to reality TV stars who have totally captivated us, Theresa Caputo from TLC’s Long Island Medium is certainly one of them. From her meetings with celebrities to her spiritual readings for everyday people she comes across in public, we’ve seen Theresa blow minds and evoke emotion from everyone who meets her. Not only does she use her gift as a medium to help others, but she also has branded herself effectively for serious money making.
Here’s Theresa’s net worth, including how much it costs if you’d like to get read by the Long Island Medium herself.
Theresa earns her living through TV, books, and live shows
Theresa doesn’t just have one way of making money — she has several. But it all comes back to her practice as a medium, which she views as a gift she’s had since she was 4 years old. According to her website, she’s been “seeing, feeling, and sensing Spirit” since childhood. And after seeing a spiritual healer in her 20s, she began to accept that she had a gift and could help others connect with deceased loved ones.
Thanks to Theresa’s humorous, outgoing personality and captivating psychic abilities, she was able to land her show, Long Island Medium, and have it be a huge success. Not only does the TV series show what life is like as a real working medium, but it also gives viewers an intimate glimpse into her life as a mother, wife, and everyday woman living in Long Island.
The show was her biggest moneymaker, but she still makes cash through her live show and books, too. She tours the country with the “Theresa Caputo Live the Experience” show, and she also has three New York Times best-selling books under her belt. “Considering I started this work with just a business card and word of mouth, I pinch myself when I think about what a crazy ride it’s been for a typical Long Island mom!” she writes on her site.
How much does a reading with Theresa cost?
While Theresa has multiple ways of making money, she reportedly doesn’t profit off of her one-on-one readings. Instead, Romper notes she says she gives 100% of her profits from the readings to charity. Theresa has given to Meals on Wheels and veteran charities in Long Island in the past.
As for how much getting a personal reading costs, it’s not as much as many have reported in the past. The publication notes some have claimed it costs upwards of $400 for a 30-minute reading. Theresa has disputed this, however. While her rates are not listed on her website, she’s said in the past that her fees are “very reasonable. Much less than the rumored amount. … It ranges from $50 to $175 depending on if it’s a private or group reading.”
While the price may not be a concern for many, the wait time may be a deterrent. Theresa has said that clients can expect to wait up to two years to see her.
Her total estimated net worth
Since her start on Long Island Medium back in 2011 to her books and live shows now, Celebrity Net Worth notes Theresa’s net worth stands around $3 million. And after several years of success, it seems there’s no stopping Theresa now, either. She’s weathered the storm of skeptics who’ve claimed she’s faking her psychic abilities, and she’s also dealt with the painful separation of her and her husband, Larry. Her kindness and endearing nature have captivated audiences in the past and will likely continue to do so in the future.
