Born in Chicago, IL to Ralph Lee Goodman and Beatrice Lentin Goodman, Nancy Weston attended Northwestern University and the University of Chicago, receiving her B.A. in Humanities from the latter. She was married to Daniel David Weston from 1948 to 1960, and has lived in Los Angeles, California since 1948.

She was the Director of the Divorcing Family Clinic within the Center for Legal Psychiatry at UCLA, built a thriving private practice, and was a frequent guest lecturer throughout her career.
