Introduction:
Welcome to counseling and therapy the MODERN way. Unlike most, Dr. Ransen requires just 2 to 5 sessions, on average, to empower you to build permanent and powerful solutions for the problems that have prevented you from living the life you deserve.

More than half of Dr. Ransen's work is empowering couples to renew and refresh their relationships, to recover from the heartbreak of affairs, and to reduce or eliminate fighting for good.

Dr. Ransen is also Board Certified in Clinical Hypnotherapy by the State of Florida. Ready to quit smoking? Lose weight? Free yourself of unwanted habits or fears? Do you suffer from chronic anxiety or physical pain that physicians may not take seriously, and have just given up? Just one hypnotherapy session is almost always sufficient to relieve you of these problems permanently.

A dual-degreed doctor with 12 years of post-graduate training, Dr. Ransen has 38 years of experience, well over twice as long as most therapists in this area.

I don't know why people watch Dr. Phil, when the truly gifted geniuses are right here!  

After 26 years of marriage, the past 20 of which got more painful every year, I somehow worked up the courage to  tell my husband: Enough! Either see a couples counselor with me right now, or I'm gone.

For so long, he was always ready with one excuse or another. And I put up with it. We had seen a marriage counselor years ago, and nothing changed.

Then a friend told me about Dr. Ransen, and I did some research.

It seemed like this man approached couples counseling like no others in S. Florida. From what I gathered, he had no long term clients at all, because couples got "fixed" in just a few sessions. I was skeptical, but I had seen the results of too many horror stories after friends has spent many months and thousands of dollars on traditional marriage counselors.

Besides, Dr. Ransen was the only one I'd ever heard of who actually offered a guaranty: if we didn't like our first hour, we would owe nothing.

Dr. Ransen showed little interest in everything that had gone wrong over the years. He said he saw no point in rehashing complicated problems, when we could repair our marriage quickly & painlessly by talking about solutions instead of problems.

I remember asking, What about the underlying issues? His answer: Once we had created solutions, the problems would be history, so there wouldn't BE any underlying issues.

Long story short. It took one long session & two short sessions. Then we knew we had no reason to return. Dr. Ransen didn't seem at all surprised.

Eight months later, I feel like we're on our honeymoon. Honest!

This guy is a gem! We thank you Dr. Ransen a thousand times for giving us our lives back.
