VERY slow website, internal server errors

I know that others have had issues with this before, but after doing the basic steps, namely:

-deactivating any unused plug-ins
-deactivating cloudflare

There has been absolutely no improvement.

I am hosting the site with dreamhost and i have a number of other wordpress sites there that run just fine.

Could it be something to do with the theme (Goodspace) that I am using?

I also read about someone who had a site running slow because they had been hacked. How do I even check for this?


the site is:
