About Dr. Irvin
Dr. Angela Irvin is a clinical psychologist skilled in working with general and forensic adult populations. She is a passionate advocate for mental health education and access and prides herself on providing the highest level of clinical and professional services.
Dr. Irvin earned a bachelor’s degree in health administration from Florida Atlantic University, which prepared her for an administrative career. However, her interests evolved from administration to counseling, prompting her to transition to clinical work. She subsequently earned an M.A. and Psy.D. in clinical psychology at Spalding University in Louisville, KY.
While at Spalding, Dr. Irvin trained in dual emphasis areas concentrating on adult mental health and forensics. Her training emphasized psychological assessment and evidence-based treatment for complex cases involving attachment, trauma, and disordered personality development for justice-involved individuals. Her research interests have centered on the need for culturally relevant treatment approaches for minoritized populations, which has informed her therapeutic work with women, veterans, African American males, and individuals from low socioeconomic backgrounds.
Dr. Irvin completed her pre-doctoral internship at the Chalmers P. Wylie VA Ambulatory Care Center and satellite Behavioral Health Center in Columbus, OH, where she received extensive training in comprehensive trauma assessment and treatment, and long-term therapy for depression, anxiety, and personality-related issues.
Dr. Irvin is a proud veteran of the United States Air Force who has lived and traveled in East Asia. Aside from psychology, she indulges her interests in philosophy, world religions, culture, and travel. She is a native Floridian who enjoys the great outdoors and can often be found on a hiking trail, honing her skills in amateur nature photography.
