Dr Melissa Kalt, MD

Dr Melissa is a Trauma Expert, Soul Strategist, Master Healer, Antifragile Narcissist Survivor, award-winning physician, mentor, writer, and mother of five.  A woman of extraordinary vision, depth, and healing, Dr Melissa brings forth into her life’s work, Helping Narcissist Survivors Heal, an inner state of stillness, aliveness, and alignment.  Melissa sees the greater truth in her clients and is passionate about catalyzing their unrealized potentials.

Dr Melissa is a graduate of the Medical College of Wisconsin – triple-board-certified in Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, and Lipidology. She was voted to the US Best Doctors™ list by her peers year over year 2009-2018. While single parenting five children, Dr Melissa was promoted from staff physician to Assistant Clinical Professor to Medical Site Director of three clinics at Froedtert and Medical College of Wisconsin.

By 2012, Dr Melissa had achieved every goal on her over-achiever to-do list yet was miserable.

She began an extraordinary journey that solved her most unsolvable problem. It all started with the question – What if life doesn’t have to be this way? The answer – Connect to the truth of who you are.

Dr Melissa got really clear about who she was, who she needed to be, and what needed to change. She identified, then extracted herself from several narcissistic relationships and committed to healing her family’s trauma.

By extracting the illusion and getting clear about the truth of who she was – everything changed. In 2018, Dr Melissa made the leap to expand beyond the limits of traditional medicine and left her 20+ year medical career to follow her Why. That same year, she found her forever partner in love and business, whom she married in 2019.

Through her writings, videos, courses, healing sessions, and one-on-one work, Dr Melissa is on a mission to empower those who have suffered from narcissistic abuse to clearly see their blind spots, release their trauma, heal their wounds, and connect deeply to their Divine Self, their beautiful Soul buried deep inside.

The Narcissist Project

After a lifetime of experience with both overt and covert narcissists in family relationships, romantic relationships, and workplace settings, I extracted myself from those relationships and committed to fully healing.

Through my journey, I discovered 5 steps to healing. When I started working with others, I learned most survivors stop at step 3 and wonder why their life isn’t what they’d hoped. They continue to attract narcissists and other toxic people into their life. The continued trauma and drama of toxic people and their circumstances blocks self-actualization. It actually prevents you from being who you are here to be.

I also worked with so many parents, brave enough to leave the relationship – now distraught that their children are manipulated and gaslit by the narcissist, while the professionals are none the wiser.

I said, “Enough!”

In 2021, I committed to being the change I wanted to see in the world and The Narcissist Project was born.
