Victoria is not just an expert functional medicine practitioner, life coach and breathwork guide. She has the expansive knowledge base and clinical experience to handle the most complex of cases. What sets her apart from the rest is her genuine concern and respect for those she treats. I can’t express how grateful I am for her warmth, patience and understanding in her treatment of my father. He has been ill for so long and she has been the only practitioner who has truly helped him. Thank you Victoria!
I can not say enough how much I appreciate Victoria. She is a caring health practitioner. She has a unique skill set being an Integrative Nurse Practitioner, Herbalist and Life Coach. Her knowledge and innovation around nutrition, western medicine and holistic medicine make for a winning combination. It really helped me to have multiple modalities working together. She sees me as a whole person. Victoria made my health issues visible and my health solutions attainable. She is with you step by step on the journey. I recommend her to my friends and family with ease.
As an integrative physician, I can attest to Victoria’s complete commitment and dedication to her patient’s wellness, as well as her knowledge and expertise in thoughtful Life Coaching, Functional Medicine and herbalism.
Victoria adeptly addresses the emotional and psychological factors that may be causing or contributing to illness, while also being a superlative diagnostician with a deep understanding of advanced functional testing.
She is truly more dedicated to her patients than any provider I have ever known – no exaggeration. I am inspired by her commitment and how deeply Victoria works to guide her patients to deep and lasting wellness.
Victoria is this refreshing combination of a holistic healer and medical professional wrapped up in a cloak of ancient female wisdom and modern herbal/food science. She listens attentively and doesn’t mince words with her feedback and recommendations. You get more out of one hour of coaching with her than many visits to a traditional therapist or doctor.
Victoria is one of the most openhearted, intelligent, caring, compassionate and hard working clinicians I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Her knowledge of complex medical conditions from Hashimotos to Irritable Bowel Syndrome, SIBO to anxiety, and how to optimally treat them, are continually impressive. Victoria’s open, loving heart makes every patient she works with feel loved and cared for. Her patients adore her, and she truly and deeply cares about them.
As a life coach, she has turned my patients’ lives around, helping them to reframe and reimagine their thinking, and the stories they tell about their lives. It’s impressive, to say the least.
As a physician and midwife with two decades of experience, I am honored to have the opportunity to work with and recommend Victoria. I refer all my patients to her for life coaching, and all my East Coast patients to her for integrative and Functional medical care – she’s just phenomenal!
Victoria is the ONLY healthcare professional I have ever found who is willing to step outside, get creative, and look at the whole picture. She’s solved some mighty mysteries for me by considering possibilities no one else would. I trust her with my health.
What can I say about Victoria? She has been a literal God send for me. No matter what is bothering me, whether it be medical, or mental, she has an answer, and it WORKS. She’s helped me through so much and is kind, caring, compassionate, and extremely knowledgeable. Her holistic perspective to wellbeing is a breath of fresh air in a world of pills being the cure for everything. I truly enjoy speaking to her every week. I honestly look forward to those days of the week more than any other. If you’re on the fence, please don’t hesitate! She is the best.
Victoria is a godsend. Victoria is a rare blend of western and holistic medicine, with top notch life coach skills. She listens and asks detailed questions. She’s not rushing you out of the office or looking at you as a set of symptoms. She sees the whole person and wants to get to the root cause of what’s wrong for you. I’ve sent so many people to her over the years, and everyone walks away happy.
In short she’s a gem. I just wish there were more practitioners and life coaches like her!
I’ve been working with Victoria Albina for over four years and have seen a complete transformation in my health: body, mind, spirit. I’m so grateful to have Victoria in my life.
Her approach works because she listens without judgement, helps you set goals and develop totally do-able, incremental steps to achieve them. Her kindness, humor, commitment, and support have helped get me “unstuck” and improve my life in ways that I didn’t think were possible.
Victoria’s knowledge of medicine, Western and alternative, is impressive. She helped me control a serious and painful medical condition, avoiding surgery and pharmaceuticals. And my energy, mood, and level of fitness are at an all-time high.
If you are looking for help to make change in your life, I can’t recommend Victoria highly enough. Vic is the perfect combination of wise, nerdy, irreverent, relentlessly optimistic, challenging and supportive. And her humor and politics seal the deal for me.
I absolutely love Victoria, she makes life more fun and her energy is contagious. I had no idea I would develop such an adoration for the person who has helped me heal my gut.
I love how multi-talented she is -- everything from science, to gut, to mental health and meditation. She is the full package!
I’m so happy to have found Victoria Albina! It’s a breath of fresh air to find a medical provider that isn’t interested in providing pharmaceuticals without asking all of the questions first, and trying less invasive treatments, including lifestyle, counseling and botanicals that can truly heal!
She takes the time to understand me and all of the various aspects that could be adding to my issue and helps make a plan that I’m comfortable with. Beyond the medical care, the life coaching she does as part of every visit is transformative. I truly appreciate her unique and holistic style. I’ll definitely keep coming back to see her.
Working with Victoria radically transformed my relationship to myself and nutrition, and helped me build lifelong practices of self-care. She is so much more than a life coach, a nutritionist, or a doctor – she is a true healer.
Victoria helped me connect the many parts of my life, and my body, that I was struggling with, healing my gut, anxiety and so much more. The loving wisdom and practical strategies she shared with me as my guide continue to empower me to this day – from teaching me to make deeply nourishing bone broth, to supporting me through the incredibly challenging GAPS diet, to reminding me not to compare my insides to other people’s outsides, and so much more. I quote her often, and continue to feel grateful for the influence she’s had on my life.
I’ve been working with Victoria for several years for holistic medical care, nutrition and life coaching. Her expertise and compassion go a long way! Her guidance has been really helpful through transitions in my life (jobs, moving, relationships). I can’t recommend her enough.
Before I found Coach Vic I was working so hard on health, fitness and body image, and was getting no where. I was feeling really tired with it all. Coach Vic gives me exactly what I need: the perfect mix of intuitive listening, extensive medical knowledge, expertise in counseling and coaching, and her nutrition advice was perfect for me.
Our coaching work taught me how to me feel more confident right away. I learned how to deeply and truly feed myself, inside and out. I move, eat, think and feel in new ways now – and feel joyful while doing it. Victoria’s whole approach is about self-love, acceptance and telling stories that serve us, and it’s life changing.
I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to recommend Victoria to anyone – I sent both my parents to her! She is truly a goldmine. Make that first appointment – take the chance on changing your life for the better.
I have been in and out of therapy for 25 years and at some point you kind of think you have “done it all.” Then six months ago I started to work with Victoria. I am finding myself today in a whole new space of acceptance and understanding about my life and what is. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
Victoria Albina not only changed my life but also saved my life. Victoria has to be one of the most intelligent people I have ever met, and I’ve met hundreds of healthcare professionals in my work and life.
Victoria treats you like a real person, giving you true direction. She says what she knows and what she means – she is direct and I appreciate it deeply. She is the perfect mix of a healer, healthcare professional, and ancient medical guru. We talk about yoga, herbs, probiotics, diet, emotions, western medicines, and more. I am very grateful for meeting such an amazing person and love working with her.
I am so excited to be working with Victoria Albina. Her methodology is life changing. I feel really supported in this process. She brings a breadth of expertise to the table with zero judgement.
I really appreciate her bedside manner. She takes the time to get to know you, your entire expansive medical history and explain every step of the process. She really explores all the symptoms and works exceptionally hard to find the root cause and guide you on your journey to a fully nourished, healthy life without judgement. Highly recommended.
My tummy was a mess and I was exhausted all the time with chronic fatigue when I met Vic. She gave me hope beyond what I thought was possible: that in a year’s time I’d feel the world’s possibilities again.
A month under her guidance and I stopped needing a 2 hour afternoon sleep. A year later I’m strong enough to move out on my own again, and it fills me with joy. I still have to work hard to keep healing, but I’ve achieved more than I thought possible under her loving and expert care. Whether I need help with grief, gender troubles, anxiety, thoughts/feelings, diet, herbal medicine, nutrition, or establishing and maintaining routine, she’s always there and has been such a help. Thank you Vic, you’re a treasure of this world.
I wanted to let you know in all my years of struggling with bulimia, depression and my ulcer, meeting you has touched me and inspired me to have hope again in the medical realm. I cannot stress enough how the time I’ve met with you has changed my health and my mind.
The way you combine medicine and coaching is amazing. You are truly a gift to the universe and it is only through practitioners like you that there is hope for more people to become educated about food as medicine and holistic approaches to medicine.
Thank you Victoria!
Victoria Albina has literally changed my life. I saw dozens of doctors who attributed my weakness, body aches, fatigue, and dysmenorrhea to “depression” or a basic cold virus. After years of “normal” blood work results, surgery, ultrasounds, and biopsies, I was lucky enough to meet Victoria, who diagnosed my MTHFR and GI concerns.
Within days of beginning to take the correct vitamins and supplements, I began to actually feel better for the first time in years. Years later, I am grateful to continue healing, working with Vic as a partner in health.
Coaching with Vic is a JOY! She’s brilliant, intuitive, supportive, and approaches her work with welcome humor.
Her work has helped me learn not just what foods work for me and which ones don’t but also what habits in all arenas of my life serve me. I also love working with Vic because the human in her acknowledges the human in me–expectations are always reasonable, she meets my struggle with tenderness, and she deeply listens and takes all body weirdness seriously.
I came to Victoria in relative shambles. I had several health issues that were affecting my home and work life. Victoria has gotten me on the road to recovery with her medical advice and her caring check ins. She is a real pro and I would recommend her to anyone.
Gaining and maintaining health requires a holistic perspective. It is so wonderful to have a health advocate like Victoria whose knowledge and skills cover all the bases – from life coaching and counseling to integrative medical diagnostics and therapies, to conventional wisdom founded in science. Victoria is all you need, and as a licensed acupuncturist, I send so many of my patients her way for excellent care.
Victoria is a compassionate, wise, and fun resource for many aspects of health and wellness. I participated in one of her seasonal cleanses and did life coaching with her, and learned so much from the experience. I felt so held by all the little details she pays attention to, from daily journaling prompts, to the materials which guide you through all of the food and self-care rituals, and the fantastically supportive community created through the private facebook group. I also participated in a one-on-one coaching sessions with Victoria, and she made several very useful suggestions for me. If you are looking for someone to help you incorporate more awareness and self-knowledge into your approach to life, career, relationships, food and self-care, I cannot recommend Vic highly enough!
Victoria changed my life. I came in for a cough, and left with a deep connection with someone who would help me through a difficult time in my life. Victoria opened my eyes to all the natural ways to help my husband and I conceive. She recommended diet changes, supplements, comprehensive tests and treatments, and acupuncture, which opened my eyes to a world of medicine I hadn’t considered before. She truly cares about me, and was passionate about getting me “knocked up.” After several months of hard work and lifestyle changes, I conceived by baby boy naturally. My pregnancy was healthy and complication free, and I know a huge part of that is because of the preparation I learned from Victoria. He was born on Christmas Eve, and he is truly the greatest gift of all! Thank you, Victoria!
Working with Victoria has been a total game changer for me. I spent years visiting multiple doctors, with my health slowly getting worse and worse. Things took an even tougher turn after some travel, leading to two years of brain fog and constant exhaustion. I had tried just about everything, and things finally changed for the better through working with Victoria. Health is multi-factorial, and she addresses the complex interplay of external and internal factors that can lead to health issues. My health issues were holding me back from bigger life changes I wanted to make. It is a relief to have the energy back, and the joy that goes with it, to get back to things I enjoy, and to move forward on new paths in my life.
