James Jozwiak

In-Training Psychotherapist through Foundations Health and Wholeness

I am a resident therapist located at N.E.W Community Clinic and the Micah Center in Green Bay, WI. I have experience working with a wide variety of complex issues such as Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety, Depression, PTSD, and Autism Spectrum Disorder. I also have a significant amount of experience working with veterans pertaining to issues they face after transitioning into civilian life.
Since everyone has their own struggles and comes to therapy for their own reasons, I believe in utilizing an individually tailored approach when working with clients. I have a calm demeanor and I am a great listener, but I can also be sarcastic and enjoy using humor to assist clients in feeling more comfortable when talking through difficult issues. I believe in utilizing a collaborative approach to help clients realize their own strengths and worth even when it may be difficult for clients to see these things themselves.

I believe that anyone and everyone can benefit from therapy, no matter how small or big the issues. I help clients identify issues and develop the skills necessary to work through them and realize their full potential. I utilize a collaborative approach, so I enjoy working with clients to help them find the answers to their own questions as well as assisting them in developing their own strengths to grow and succeed as individuals.

Franchesca Vasquez

In-Training Psychotherapist through Foundations Health and Wholeness

I have experience working with issues such as attachment disorders, depression, anxiety, perinatal and postpartum related challenges (perinatal mood disorders). I want to create an emotionally safe space for my clients to share and process. It is important to me to have an honest and trustworthy relationship with my clients. I believe people have the answers to their own questions and solutions to their problems, they often just need help to process their thoughts, feelings, and actions. I support individuals to reflect on their own experiences to view situations from multiple perspectives and I help empower people to utilize effective strategies to achieve desired outcomes.
