Is perfectionism and codependency at the root of your health issues?

with podcast guest

Victoria Albina


Victoria Albina (she/they) is a Certified Life Coach, UCSF-trained Family Nurse Practitioner, and Breathwork Meditation Guide with a passion for helping women realize that they are their own best healers, so they can break free from codependency, perfectionism, and people-pleasing and reclaim their joy.

She is the host of the Feminist Wellness Podcast, holds a Master’s degree in Public Health from Boston University School of Public Health and a BA in Latin American Studies from Oberlin College. Victoria has been working in health & wellness for over 20 years and lives on occupied Munsee Lenape territory in New York’s Hudson Valley.

In this episode, we’re talking about codependent thinking, perfectionism, and people pleasing and I’d venture to say that the majority of us experience these issues on a regular basis. Victoria shares how they can manifest in physical issues, her unique take on how we can start to unravel these patterns and uncover solutions to our most challenging physical health concerns, and more!

Hormone balance is essential for healthy, regular periods, and getting enough nourishment is essential to hormone balance.
