Dr. Danielle Goodwin, Psy.D.

Dr. Goodwin is the owner and Clinical Director of Journey to Psychological Wellness, LLC. She has worked in the mental health field for more than 20 years and has been licensed as a Clinical Psychologist since 2003. Her extensive training and clinical experience consist of treating children, adolescents, and adults from diverse cultures and backgrounds in both rural and urban areas in outpatient, inpatient, residential, and school settings.


She completed her internship in an inpatient state psychiatric facility where she provided treatment to adolescents and adults. While completing her residency training in the Baltimore City Public School System, she also fulfilled the requirements needed to become a Certified School Psychologist.


While working in this setting, she served as the School Psychologist for the Special Education team. Her duties consisted of completing psychoeducational evaluations, counseling students, and developing Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) that address each student's needs and providing crisis intervention services.


She also provided individual and family therapy to children, adolescents, and adults; completed psychological evaluations; and conducted social skills groups for children and adolescents in an outpatient program affiliated with Lehigh Valley Health Network for more than 9 years.


Dr. Goodwin works with various social, emotional, academic, and behavioral challenges. She specializes in working with individuals who are diagnosed with Anxiety, Panic Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Depression, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Social Phobia and Learning Disabilities. She also works with individuals who are experiencing relational and/or social challenges, as well as parents who are struggling with children who are diagnosed with mental health or medical challenges.


Dr. Goodwin's comprehensive approach to therapy is to provide you with strategies you can implement in your everyday life so that you can learn how to independently cope and to work on creating effective change to assist with optimal functioning. Within the therapy session, she provides a nonjudgmental and empathetic disposition so individuals feel safe and comfortable. She respects each individual's background and experiences, as she believes each individual is unique because of their particular journey in life.


She strives to establish a trusting relationship with each individual, as this is instrumental in feeling comfortable with sharing thoughts and feelings so you can work towards personal growth. She feels that honesty, trust, and motivation are instrumental to one's progress in treatment. Although she primarily utilizes interventions from Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, the type of therapy utilized and interventions will be determined based on each individual's needs. She also believes that collaboration with professionals that include Physicians, Psychiatrists, and School Personnel is integral to providing effective care.

Jennifer Nuss, MA, LPC 

Ms. Nuss  has extensive experience working with children, adolescents, adults, families and couples from diverse cultures and socioeconomic statuses  since 2000.  She has worked in various mental health settings  including inpatient hospitals, adolescent residential homes, outpatient community mental health centers, and private practice.  She has also worked as a mobile therapist, where she provided in-home services to children and their families. 


Ms. Nuss has worked with a wide variety of psychological issues. Her areas of expertise and interests include Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety, Trauma, Codependent Relationships, Domestic Violence, Chronic Pain/Chronic Illness, Grief, Pregnancy/Postpartum Depression, Parenting, Behavioral Disorders, Anger Management, and Eating disorders.  Ms. Nuss is extremely interested in the way the mind affects the body, in regards to stress as well as chronic pain or illness. She explores this dynamic with clients and helps individuals understand that their pain is real, and psychological therapy can help them not only cope with this pain, but also allow them to express the myriad of emotions that come with living in pain. She explains the way the mind and body connect in ways that may exacerbate or prolong pain, and teaches techniques to help reduce these connections. She believes that in addition to learning ways to “cope” with the pain, she can help others learn ways to actually reduce their pain.


Ms. Nuss is primarily Person Centered in her approach but utilizes a variety of techniques from evidenced based therapies including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy.  She also uses a psychodynamic approach as well as Transactional Analysis.  Ms. Nuss is passionate about the work she does, as she genuinely cares about others and believes everyone is capable of improving his or her situation when they are given the right tools and support. Helping a person to feel heard, validated, and valued are some of the most important aspects she believes therapy can offer.  She offers hope to those who feel hopeless, until they can find hope for themselves. She believes relationships are one of the most important parts of life and that many relationships can be more enjoyable after learning better ways to communicate. Ms. Nuss emphasizes self-care and encourages clients to find joy in their lives. She believes life is not meant to just be survived, but that people can thrive! She assists people in gaining insight into why they do the things they do and helps them change patterns of behavior that may have been adaptive at one time, but are now self-defeating.  Ms. Nuss' clients have described her as having a great deal of empathy, passionate, enthusiastic, and even humorous at times.
