October 15, 2023
Listen on


If you’re feeling trapped in a cycle of constantly seeking validation and approval from others, only to end up feeling empty and unfulfilled, then you are not alone! Many individuals find themselves caught in codependent patterns, where their sense of self-worth is dependent on the opinions and actions of others. Despite their efforts to please and accommodate, they often find that their relationships lack true reciprocity and emotional intimacy. Instead of experiencing the healthy interdependence they crave, they are left feeling emotionally drained and disconnected.

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

She is the host of the Feminist Wellness Podcast, is trained in Somatic Experiencing, holds a Masters 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.
