Sebastian Vasilescu, LMFT
Clinical Director

The courageous step of embarking on an experience of bettering one’s life is not easily done. I truly am honored to be a part of that process. In a collaborative approach I help guide Clients to work through the many reasons they arrive at therapy. Clients seem to have a very clear goal of bettering their lives, and I strive to make this happen by helping clients free themselves to use tools learned years into the future. I work with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families with varying presenting issues, including anxiety, depression, family of origin issues, marginalized oppression, relationship issues and addiction.

As Clients begin to examine their multigenerational patterns and sense of self, opportunities arise for immediate change and growth. Many issues can be improved through therapeutically increasing self-esteem, communication and interaction patterns, intimacy and differentiation of self, by examining life transitions, and personal and professional challenges.

I truly enjoy working with individual Clients, Couples and Families and strive to present a safe and supportive therapy environment.

Jason Giles, MD
Medical Director

The story of Dr. Jason Giles, MD, begins in Santa Monica, where he was raised. A graduate of UC Berkeley with a degree in molecular biology, he received his medical degree from UC Davis in 1996.

Dr. Giles completed an internship in General Surgery, residency in Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, and earned board certifications in Anesthesiology and Addiction Medicine. He was a cardiac anesthesiologist and pain specialist, before devoting his full time to Addiction Medicine in 2005.

Back in the anesthesia training days, Dr. Giles sought help for his own struggles with substance use. It is that experience which informs his unique perspective on the medical – and personal – aspects of addiction and its conquest.

Dr. Elsa Cruz
Dr. Cruz graduated from the St Louis University School of Medicine in 1984. She works in Agoura Hills, CA and 3 other locations and specializes in Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, Neurology and Psychiatry.
Jasmin Rogg

I believe that childhood suffering can dominate a person throughout life, causing anxiety, depression, addiction and other problems. I work with my clients on identifying, processing and gradually healing childhood trauma In therapy I utilize a variety of techniques.

This includes the exploration of memories, traumatic childhood experiences, and current thought and behavior patterns, as well as processing of emotions, and interpretation of mental content and dreams.

My patients are encouraged to participate also in a few Minutes of daily practice to support recovery and improved wellbeing.

This includes mindfulness, breathing exercises, meditation, positive affirmations, reading, or writing.

Psychotherapy can support you in establishing a solid foundation for ongoing recovery without falling prey to emotional relapse triggers and self-sabotaging behaviors. It is an excellent adjunct to twelve-step programs.

Jasmin Rogg is a psychotherapist in private practice in Silver Lake (Los Angeles). In the seventies, Jasmin moved to California from her native Germany in order to study psychology at UCLA and Loyola Marymount University, graduating with a MA degree in Counseling Psychology. Her family background is Jewish-Romanian-Italian. She is bilingual in English and German, and also speaks some Romanian and French.
