Meet Stacey Goldstein-Dwyer, Psy.D., MA
I am a psychologist who has dedicated my professional career to understanding the psychological mind from various lenses and providing services to underserved populations. This provides me the opportunity to work with individuals from across the lifespan who have different needs and levels of diagnostic severity requiring different psychological intervention. My current focus of practice consists of forensic assessment and evaluation, expert testimony, psychological and neuropsychological testing, learning evaluation and waivers, and professional lectures with CEU eligibility. Separate from psychological services, I enjoy tutoring children of all ages in various subjects, or collaboratively develop a learning plan specific to a student’s learning style.
Academically, I received a Bachelor’s degree in both Psychology and Criminal Justice from Northeastern University, a Master’s Degree for Forensic Psychology and Counseling from Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology, as well as a Psychology Doctorate from Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology. My APA Pre-Doctoral Internship was at Tewksbury State Hospital and APA Post-Doctoral Residency was with the United States Army as a direct commission Captain.
My professional experiences include and are not limited to testing and assessment (neurological, psychological, learning), forensic practice (testimony, assessment, outpatient/inpatient therapy, evaluation, Court-mandated treatment, and correctional administrator), personnel selection, and grant writing. I have also published in academic journals and a text book, and provided CEU lectures around the country. Currently, I am pending licensure in the state of NM; however, GD Psych Services, LLC is a team of well-trained and capable Master’s level Social Workers, Mental Health Clinicians, and Licensed Psychologists who also provide these services.

Meet Dr. Susanne Drury
One of the things I have learned in my career is that we now know how to help clients rediscover their aliveness and vitality even if they have a history of trauma. Our understanding of the neurobiology of trauma allows us to integrate all the parts of someone into new wholeness. This is the scope with which I practice and has proven effective for my clients.
I have been practicing as a licensed Psychologist for over 35-years, specializing in addictions and trauma informed care. During my time as a practitioner of mental health, I taught a five-course specialty program on trauma work for 17-years, developed and directed a residential trauma program for women, provided organizational consultion to various organizations and businesses, and conducted several team building trainings to groups needing assistance in getting past work place conflicts and dysfunctional communication patterns. Throughout my years as a practicing Psychologist, I have obtained certification and training from elite programs and instructors in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), and over 400 hours of specialized training in treating trauma disorders. It is my mission to provide psychological support to individuals in need and to do so through therapeutic efforts, training, and consultation. Additionally, it is a passion of mine to teach other professionals in the field to provide these services to their clients as well.
Meet Audrey Bernius
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) because I love to work with people ages 5 to 105 to help them achieve their best self, whether this is making life changes, working through current problems, coping with grief and trauma, or helping with schoolwork. I do this by listening, offering a different perspective, and/or finding the best way to present information so that subject matter is more easily understood. I also work with individuals who need additional help with social situations, including communication and sensory issues. I work with the individual and their families to understand both the needs of the individual, as well as ways to improve overall relational dynamics. I believe that creating a guilt-free, judgement-free, safe space helps individuals grow and work through their internal struggles in order to create a better life.
