Top NYC Psychologist, Dr. Nadine Macaluso along with two expert panelists, discuss how to divorce a narcissistic partner.

Dr. Nadine Macaluso, New York Psychologist and ex-wife of the infamous Wolf of Wall Street, Jordan Belfort, is raising awareness of narcissistic abuse and offering survivors support. Dr. Nadine is teaming up with two other experts on narcissistic abuse – a powerhouse divorce attorney and a divorce coach, to discuss the topic, “How to Divorce a Narcissist.” The three will share their personal and professional tips and recommended best practices to surviving the process of divorcing a narcissist.

Dr. Nadine Macaluso is known in some circles as the real-life woman behind Margot Robbie’s character in the major motion picture, The Wolf of Wall Street, which debuted in 2013. In other circles, Dr. Nadine is known as a prominent psychologist and licensed marriage and family therapist. Because of her experience of going through a tumultuous marriage and divorce to the Wolf of Wall Street, Dr. Nadine became as professionally credentialed in relationships as she was personally. She now works specifically with individuals who have a history of being involved in pathological love relationships with Dark Tetrad personalities such as narcissists and psychopaths.

In her blog about Dark Tetrad personalities, Dr. Nae, as her patients call her, says, “60 million Americans are negatively affected each year by coming into contact with narcissists. Ironically, this is the same number of people who seek therapy each year. It’s no coincidence that as a psychotherapist, Dr. Nadine regularly finds that her clients’ mood disorders directly occur from being emotionally hurt, manipulated, and gaslit by someone with this personality profile.”

Some of the signs and symptoms of narcissistic personality disorder can include but are not limited to:

● Have an exaggerated sense of self-importance.
● Have a sense of entitlement and require constant, excessive admiration.
● Expect to be recognized as superior even without achievements that warrant it.
● Exaggerate achievements and talents.
● Preoccupied with fantasies about success, power, brilliance, beauty, or the perfect mate.
● Have an inability or unwillingness to recognize the needs and feelings of others.

Divorcing a Narcissist:

Successfully divorcing a narcissist requires specific skills, savvy techniques, and psychological support.

The only thing harder than being married to a narcissist is divorcing one. It’s a fight not meant for the faint of heart, and survivors must be braver, smarter, and more equipped than they’ve ever been.

Traditional divorces can be lengthy, but divorcing a narcissist means a long-haul fight for the survivor’s life – some only get so far before they give up from fear, intimidation, or sheer exhaustion.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. Dr. Nadine explains, “You can divorce your narcissist partner, go from surviving to thriving, and ensure you never get yourself into a pathological relationship again.”

The expert panel – survivors of narcissistic abuse and divorce themselves – share their professional and personal best practices for getting through a divorce and leaving a narcissist partner in the dust.


Ann Grant, Family Law Attorney: After surviving a high-conflict divorce, Ann figured out how to not just survive but thrive. She now empowers her clients to do the same, emphasizing boundaries both in and out of the courtroom.


Jackie Miller, High Conflict Divorce Coach & Consultant: Jackie also founded her practice after experiencing her own high-conflict divorce. Based in LA, she now dedicates herself to helping individuals navigate the harrowing process of divorce.
