I've been fortunate enough to work with teenagers and young adults for over 2 years now. It's been my pleasure to help them overcome challenges like depression, anxiety, substance abuse, academic stress, and more. It's so important for this age group to establish their identity, and I'm grateful for the opportunity to have guided so many young individuals through this process. With the right support, I truly believe that their future is bright.

Unlocking the Power of GRIT in Children: Fostering Resilience, Independence, and Growth GRIT, that remarkable ability to persevere in the pursuit of long-term goals even when faced with adversity, is a quality we all desire for our children. It's the cornerstone of resilience, a vital trait that paves the way for independence and success. And at Well Coached Life, we believe in cultivating GRIT in children from the earliest possible age. GRIT Kids—Who Are They? GRIT Kids represent a diverse spectrum of young individuals, ranging from the bold to the timid, the curious to the cautious, the serious to the playful. They encompass children between the ages of 2 and 12, each on their unique journey of self-discovery and growth. The GRIT Kids Mission: At Well Coached Life, we've established GRIT Kids with a singular purpose: to provide parents and caregivers with the tools and guidance they need to nurture self-awareness in their children at every developmental stage. We understand that simple behavioral management isn't enough to cultivate the internal locus of control required for character development and self-discipline. Why GRIT Matters: GRIT is more than just a buzzword; it's a vital life skill. It's about teaching children to persevere, adapt, and transform in the face of challenges. It's about fostering curiosity about their own thoughts and feelings, enabling them to develop insight, evolve, and embrace their unique potential. Our Expert GRIT Kids Coaches: Our dedicated team of GRIT Kids Coaches is specially trained to assist you in the intentional upbringing of your child. We provide the guidance and support needed to help your child form a strong self-identity, learn to live with purpose, and grow into their fullest, most capable self. Join Us on This Journey: Let's cultivate GRIT in your child as soon as possible. Together, we'll empower them to face life's challenges with resilience, independence, and unwavering determination. With Well Coached Life and GRIT Kids, your child's path to personal growth and self-discovery begins today.

Los Angeles, California therapist: Jonathan Kruger Therapy, marriage and family therapist
Child or Adolescent Issues

Jonathan Kruger Therapy

Marriage and Family Therapist, LMFT
Your child is the most precious vessel in your life, and finding a trusted therapist to address your child’s emotional challenges is one of the toughest decisions a parent can face. Engaging with children in a safe, supportive way has been a lifelong passion of mine. I was blessed to be raised in a household that was joyous, accepting, filled with music, and also filled with children. My mother was a music therapist for children with special needs and disabilities, and observing her connect through music to deeply impaired youth had a profound impact on my life. Her example taught me to understand and engage children at their level, and I have taken those lessons into my therapeutic process, whether it be working closely with troubled children and teens throughout the Los Angeles County Unified Schools district, or engaging with children in my private practice. My approach to child therapy is two-pronged. First, I seek to engage the child as an active participant in the therapeutic process. Deploying imagination, play, art, music, breathing, dancing, and energy work, the purpose is to build deep trust and communication at a level the child can embrace and that feels authentic to the child’s experience. Since children clearly do not have the communication skills of adults, building this connectivity, sense of safety, and environment of trust is vital. This is often accomplished through transitional objects, such as toys, dolls, and musical instruments. This signals to the child that our communication will take place at a level which is understandable to them, as well as comfortable and trusting. Once this attachment has taken place, it then becomes possible to infuse and suggest different thought and behavior patterns that address the child’s underlying issues. Building this foundation of trust with the child is vital, but it is often just the first step. The second element of my child therapy practice is to fully enlist the family in understanding, supporting, and resolving the child’s emotional challenges. Clearly, the family and parenting dynamic is critical to the child’s behavior. Yet truly understanding that family dynamic is a sensitive process, especially given the enormous pressure parents are under in today’s world to be, simply put, perfect. My approach with parents is to, first, actively defuse this “perfection pressure.” No parent is perfect, and a key step is to uncover and explore the internal parenting dynamic absent the external pressures parents face today. Another key step is active “re-parenting” where I work closely with parents to identify different parenting techniques that will help support the child’s therapeutic process. A holistic approach to child and family therapy is critical to long term healing and opening new, positive behaviors. Crafting a trusting, safe, and child-centric environment is a lifelong passion and a key part of my overall practice.

Previously, I worked as a child and family therapist for several years at an outpatient community mental health clinic. The earlier you intervene in a child's life, the better off they will be as an adult. Working with kids and families is one of my passions and I also provide parenting skills as well.
