Nancy Irwin, PsyD, C.Ht


Originally from Atlanta, 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 work woke up the healer in her, allowed her to heal her own adolescent abuse at the hand of a clergyman, and prompted her to pursue a doctorate in psychology to specialize in the prevention and healing of 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.”

Dr. Nancy Irwin is a frequent media expert on numerous radio and TV shows, including CNN, CNBC, Fox, MSNBC, Anderson, The Rachel Maddow Show, The Mitch Albom Show, and more.
