Integrative Change was founded by Brad Kerschensteiner, LMFT in 2010 in South Florida and currently acts as its President. He developed the Integrative Change Network so health and wellness professionals can build lasting referral relationships, learn networking and practice-building skills, and have a community with like-minded practitioners. He found that many health and wellness professionals were very isolated in their practices, suffering from burnout, hampered by poor business skills, needing to diversify their referral sources beyond managed care, and desiring a more integrative approach to patient treatment. He also found that many health providers do not join traditional networking groups and so he decided to create something exclusively for health and wellness providers. Today, Integrative Change has a large active membership in South Florida and a chapter in NYC.
Brad served as the primary Life/Executive Coach for the Canyon Ranch Hotel & Spa in Miami Beach for seven years and prior, as the Assistant Clinical Directory of the G & G Holistic Treatment Center in North Miami Beach for three years. He received his Masters in Integral Counseling Psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies in 2003. He currently has an integrative practice in Miami Beach that includes Executive Coaching, psychotherapy and Team Training services. Read more: http://bradkerschensteiner.com/
