Lorissa ArgoRay


Lorissa’s journey into the world of the Healing Arts began as a critical care Registered Nurse at a local hospital. While she can appreciate the values of traditional bedside care, she quickly realized that her healing gifts would best be utilized in a more holistic atmosphere. She has since layered her nursing training with Healing Touch, Holistic Nutrition & Herbalism certifications resulting in a unique fusion of healthcare modalities. Lorissa works as a bridge between medical paradigms which allows her a modern-witchy perspective that unites & heals on so many levels. Her style of patient care centers on the human in front of her, rather than merely diagnoses. She assists individuals on their healing journey by reflecting & activating their own innate healing wisdom. These days you can find Lorissa working as a bilingual urgent care nurse, tending to her blossoming urban garden, and cuddling the most adorable rescued senior chihuahuas.

I have found Lorissa to be inspirational, kind-hearted, and full of life. Her intuition and love for herbs is such a pleasure to be just in her presence.
Lorissa is so knowledgeable and approachable – she has been a joy to learn from while I’ve been in the program. Her open-mindedness and intuition give her such a balanced approach to teaching – she makes learning feel reciprocal and inspiring. She guides me to feel competent and confident as an herbalist! Thank you, Lorissa!
