You will wonder at times how she knew about you and a particular significant other because she seems to describe you and the relationship to a T. And, when you read the last page you will wish you had read it years and a number of relationships earlier.

Irene Conlan

I have read other books on this topic which spoke to me... This book, which I got in the Kindle version, pulled it all together for me--the biology, personal values, self identity, the human quest for belonging and intimacy. The book... brought to me great understanding. I wish I had ordered the paper version with the workbook. I ended up going back and ordering it.

“Overcoming Childhood Sexual Abuse” Friday March 15 – LATalkLive 

This week’s guest: Nancy Irwin Ph.D., Therapist and Author, Co-Host, Stephen Tako, Actor, Motivational Speaker 

About Nancy: 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 waked 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 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. 

A reinvention expert, Dr. Nancy is the author of YOU-TURN: CHANGING DIRECTION IN MIDLIFE (2008), a collection of “over 40 stories of people over 40” who made amazing transitions in midlife.
