Welcome to Delray Holistic Therapy — The Place for Solutions™

If you’ve been looking for real help right now, then you’ve probably seen plenty of psychotherapy websites that are short on details and full of vague philosophies and marketing hype. Delray Holistic Therapy is different. If you’re serious, if you need effective solutions now, then take some time to read what’s here. You want answers? You’ll find them here. More questions? You can send a secure message directly to an experienced doctor, and get answers within hours. Want an appointment? Usually just a few days’ notice is enough. You will discover that this website is different, and that Delray Holistic Therapy is the real thing. This is the place for rapid and enduring solutions.

When choosing a counselor, please ask good questions, tough questions. If the answers are vague, old-fashioned, or just plain unreasonable, then move on. Do your homework. This is serious. The choice of a therapist or counselor can never be undone, for better or for worse. You must ask yourself: If a therapist cannot help in a few weeks or months, then why on earth would you expect that you’d get more help by returning again and again?

Most of the psychotherapy and counseling here is informed by Solution Focused Brief Therapy, a modern approach that is used by tens of thousands of counselors worldwide. As suggested by its name, this approach is almost always brief (requiring only several sessions). The reason is quite simple. Traditional counseling devotes many weeks or months to analyzing problems. This approach can be painful, expensive, and disappointing, for two reasons. First, problems occurred in the past, so there is nothing that can be done about them. Second, problems are the result of behaviors that failed. By contrast, Solution Focused Counseling focuses on solutions that have succeeded in the past and will succeed in the future. This fundamentally shifts counseling from discussing what went wrong to what will go right — starting now! All that’s needed is for you to let go of one or more behaviors that led to problems, and instead switch to behaviors that are far more likely to lead to solutions in your life.

Do you want to create real solutions for your marriage or relationship problems, quickly, with long-lasting solutions? Need Couple or Family Counseling? Effective Relationship Counseling? Is chronic pain, depression, anxiety, smoking, excess weight or other eating problems, excess drinking, or insomnia robbing you of life’s simple pleasures? If so, read on... then call.

Enhance many aspects of your love life, relationship or marriage with proven, cutting-edge holistic psychotherapy, marriage counseling, relationship therapy, expert parenting advice, marriage & family therapy, soothing and powerful hypnotherapy, and couples counseling that begin and end by honoring and focusing on the strengths you already possess. It’s time to let go of problems like unhappiness, anxiety, depression, relationship conflict, eating and sleeping problems, panic attacks, and chronic pain.

Are you troubled by frequent anxiety or panic attacks? Sometimes these can feel like you're having a heart attack. Some unfortunate people suffer so badly from anxiety or panic, that they live in fear of them all the time, which only makes their anxiety worse. In many cases, we can empower you to eliminate anxiety and panic attacks in as few as one session, and show you how to remain anxiety-free in the future. This is a true life-changer. Results cannot be guaranteed and vary for individuals, but the success rates over the years have exceeded 97 percent as assessed over a year or longer.

Delray Holistic Therapy offers real and painless solutions for the problems you identify (you will not be labeled with a “diagnosis”) in just weeks, consistent with the Brief Therapy approach, not vague promises of “Aha! moments.” Such moments are very, very rare. More important, even if they occur, problems don’t just go away. Maybe you understand them a little better.

We offer cutting-edge brief marriage counseling, couples therapy, relationship counseling, holistic therapy, marriage & family therapy, effective parenting guidance you can use today, clinical hypnotherapy (especially effective for quitting smoking, chronic pain, weight loss, insomnia, fears, addictions and other unwanted habits), and couples counseling to people in Boca Raton, West Palm Beach, Delray Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and many other neighboring towns. You can easily be taught to hypnotize yourself in the comfort of your home, whenever you feel the need. All offered by a Cornell-trained doctor’s degree in psychology (Ph.D., 1979), former instructor at The Harvard Medical School, Florida Board Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, and Florida Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist. The LGBT community is always welcome and understood. The fees are lower than any in South Florida from therapists or counselors with comparable training and experience, because at Delray Holistic Therapy everyone is treated in significantly fewer sessions, ranging on the average from 2 to 4 sessions. Yes, really. Dr. Ransen never sees any client more than five times.

No Waiting, Ever!

Dr. Ransen knows that your time is as important to you as his time is to him. He will
always see you the moment you arrive. No exceptions! Ever been to a doctor’s office with no waiting room?

As you are deciding which therapist to visit, please take note of how many are dual-degreed doctors with 39 years’ experience and 12 years of postgraduate training, like Dr. Ransen, having earned a PhD in Psychology from Cornell University in 1979, and his second degree from Nova University in Marriage & Family Therapy 24 years later. Dr. Ransen is not just an experienced psychotherapist with Ivy League credentials. His practice is also informed by the serious study and college teaching experience of beliefs and practices from the East, especially from the tradition of Zen Buddhism. He was fortunate to study for almost a year under the tutelage of Ram Das, formerly Dr. Richard Alpert, Harvard University professor of psychology. Ram Das has for 40 years dedicated his life to communicating age-old Buddhist wisdom in ways readily understood by westerners. This experience has contributed in a significant way to Dr. Ransen’s predominantly western training and clinical practice.

In addition, many of our clients may be candidates for highly beneficial hypnotherapy, which is often extremely effective in helping you to let go of unwanted habitual behaviors, e.g., smoking, overeating, many addictions, irrational fears, chronic pain, and much more. You will even learn to hypnotize yourself whenever you want! How great would it be to be able to stop a migraine attack or free yourself from IBS or fear of public speaking in just one session, with the simple and relaxing use of self-hypnosis, and no drugs at all? Dr. Ransen can often empower you to be free of chronic back and other pain, a life-changing experience, with none of the risks of drugs or surgery.

Tired of Paying Hourly Fees for 45 Minutes?

Dr. Ransen never schedules appointments back-to-back. Sessions almost always last longer than their minimum times, and no one ever leaves feeling bad. Extra time at no extra cost is the rule here. If you're not smiling hopefully and optimistically, then Dr. Ransen will extend the session until you are!

Oh, and minimum session lengths are 2 hours. Yes, those are
minimum lengths, often exceeded but never at extra cost. It's not uncommon for a 2-hour session to last 3 hours. Never an extra charge.

A skilled, experienced therapist can make an enormous difference. Are you ready to start behaving and feeling like the person you remember, the person you hope to be again? The person so deeply admired by, and inspirational to others? You could become be that person again! Best of all, you can do it quickly and affordably, using natural, common-sense, and proven solutions. At Delray Holistic Therapy, you’ll find no mystical practices or meaningless psycho-babble. You will not be tested, diagnosed, or medicated.

Is your marriage or relationship now filled with lonely hours on the internet or watching TV? Ever feel like you’re living with an annoying roommate? Has your sex life slowly degraded into a dull chore, or vanished completely? Have you suffered from the heartbreak of infidelity? You will discover that there is hope, and you are likely to discover it within just a few sessions!

If you’ve been in therapy for months or years, then you have my deep sympathy. If the therapy were effective, you would have found effective solutions much sooner. Please, for your own sake, consider this: If you’re doing something again and again, and it’s not working the way you hoped, then clearly it’s time to do something different! What could make more sense, and what have you got to lose?

As a holistic therapist, Dr. Ransen is dedicated to caring for your entire well-being, instead of focusing on narrow symptoms like ADHD, Bipolar Disorder, or dozens of other “disorders” that were invented a few years ago and will probably have different names in a few years. Mind-Body-Spirit is not a foreign language here. Have you been told you must “relive” painful abuse, trauma or PTSD? Dr. Ransen disagrees. He will show you how to let go of the pain, to begin a new life starting today, and to renew your friendship with happiness, calmness and peace of mind.

You won’t find energy healing, pyramids, crystals, chakras, past-life regression, healing your inner child, soul awakening, reflexology or horoscopes here — but you can expect therapy grounded firmly in compassion, mindfulness, and the very latest scientific evidence. To be mindful is simply to be more aware of how you’re behaving and speaking in real time, with an understanding of the likely consequences of your behavior and language. Therapy of this quality comes only from a dual-degreed doctor with 39 years’ experience in the field and 12 years of post-graduate training, plus Board Certification to practice unrestricted clinical hypnotherapy in Florida and elsewhere. You can expect respectful, open-minded, and confidential treatment — and real results in just a handful of sessions.

Come alone, with a loved one, with a spouse or other relative, or with a youngster. Just come with hope in your heart. You can expect to leave with real solutions — not a diagnosis. Problems in life are not diseases, and don’t require mind-numbing drugs. Problems cry out for solutions — not cures — and Delray Holistic Therapy is The Place for Solutions.

Regardless of how bad things may seem, our counseling really does work, beginning with the very first session. That’s not hype — it is literally true and backed with a guaranty.
