Originally from Atlanta, Dr. Nancy Irwin was trained as an opera singer. In 1985, she moved to New York City to pursue a career as a stand-up comedian. She moved to Los Angeles in 1994 when she heard Hollywood was looking for more blondes…
As a comic, she only worked about 30 minutes a day, and soon took up volunteer work in the community to give back. Nancy had an epiphany while working with the sexually abused adolescents at Children of the Night. This prompted her to leave the world of entertainment and pursue a doctorate in psychology.
Dr. Irwin is in private practice as a pre-licensed psychologist and therapeutic hypnotist in Los Angeles, where she enjoys working with adults, adolescents, and children. She treats over 100 issues, but it is her mission to heal the sexually abused, as well as abusers. Dr. Irwin also is on staff at Seasons Recovery Center, a luxury rehab facility in Malibu.
She is also the author of You-Turn: Changing Direction in Midlife (May 2008 Amazon.com) and a frequent media guest on a variety of psychological topics.
