Originally from Atlanta, where she trained as an opera singer, Dr. Nancy I. 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 I. 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, and prompted her to pursue a doctorate in psychology and to specialize in the prevention and healing of child sexual abuse.
A pre-licensed psychologist and clinical therapeutic hypnotist, Dr. Nancy I. is in private practice in Los Angeles, and is also a busy public speaker. She’s been quoted extensively in Cosmopolitan, Redbook, Women’s World, and others, and is a frequent media expert on numerous radio and TV shows, including CNBC, CNN, Fox, ANDERSON, The Rachel Maddow Show, The Greg Behrendt Show, The Mitch Albom Show, and more. Dr. Irwin is a member of the Los Angeles County Psychological Association, ATSA, and the Southern California Society of Clinical Hypnosis.
