Re-Air: Overcoming Codependency, Perfectionism & People-Pleasing with Victoria Albina

Updated: Apr 13, 2023

Why is self care so hard? Welp. We're breaking it down with the amazing past guest Victoria Albina. This conversation previously aired in September of 2021 and I was so moved by the important lessons Victoria shared that I wanted to air it again.

Victoria Albina is a Certified Life Coach, UCSF-trained Family Nurse Practitioner and Breathwork Meditation Guide. She has 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.

Oftentimes we think of codependency in relationships or substances, but it can often be so much deeper - from people pleasing, to lack of boundaries, to reactivity, and more, codependency can show up in many different ways. In this episode we discuss why self-care can be so challenging for women (hello, patriarchy), why we need to accept and name our neediness, the biology and science of our nervous system and how it plays into our thought process and codependency traits, sourcing worth internally, having awareness, accepting, and taking action, and so much more.
