Trauma bond expert breaking the stigma of abusive relationships.

her story

Meet Dr. Nae, a licensed psychotherapist and expert in trauma bonds and narcissistic abuse, who was formerly married to the Wolf of Wall Street, Jordan Belfort.

Her inspiring story begins with growing up on welfare in Brooklyn, becoming a model to support herself and her mother, then falling madly in love with a charming stockbroker. After eight tumultuous years, she sets out to heal the trauma of an abusive marriage, finds healthy love, survives two forms of cancer, and her story culminates in finding her calling as a therapist, earning a PhD at 39, and becoming a global source of wisdom and hope for women recovering from pathological partnerships.
