Originally from Atlanta, where she trained as an opera singer, Dr. Nancy Irwin moved to New York City in 1985 to pursue a career as a stand-up comedian. She worked all over the country and abroad, and moved to L.A. in 1994 when she heard that Hollywood needed more blondes… Dr. Nancy experienced an epiphany when she began volunteer work for Children of the Night, a shelter for sexually abused children in Los Angeles. This waked up the healer in her, and prompted her to pursue a doctorate in psychology and to specialize in the prevention and healing of child sexual abuse. She now treats victims as well as abusers, for it is her belief that “The best way to help victims is to help the perpetrators.” A pre-licensed psychologist and clinical therapeutic hypnotist, Dr. Nancy is in private practice in Los Angeles, co-leads group therapy sessions for sex offenders, and is also a busy public speaker for Children of the Night, the Rape and Incest National Network, and Planned Parenthood. She’s been quoted extensively in Cosmopolitan, Redbook, Women’s World, and others, and has appeared on numerous radio and TV shows, including CNBC, The Rachel Maddow Show, The Greg Behrendt Show, Mitch Albom’s show, and more. Dr. Irwin is a member of the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress, a member of the Southern California Society of Clinical Hypnosis, and sits on the Education Committee of the California Coalition on Sexual Offending.
