About Me

Monica Houttuin, LCSW, CST

How I became a Couples Therapy, Sex Therapy expert.

OK, so I’m not really a SexPert (snicker) but the Hundreds Of Couples and  Individuals with Sexual/Intimacy Concerns I have helped go from Struggling to Finding ReConnection, Healing and Repair, actually think I am.

I think it’s a nice side effect of helping so many people overcome their struggles after they have been floundering around & getting desperate for so many years.

Before I dedicated myself to helping people say adios to Feeling Like Roommates Or Worse, I was apparently already on My Lifetime Mission because I have always been concerned with Helping People ReConnect and it took a lot of inspiration & a truck-load of guts to get to where I am today.

Let’s Do the Math…So, the reason I am CALLED an expert is because one fine day, I decided I was going to really figure this whole Couples Therapy, Sex Therapy, Affair Recovery thing out.

For one, I wanted a solution..not a possible solution but a sure-shot, carved-in-stone solution.And so I did. I gave it my all (time, money, effort) and I am incredibly proud of the results I have managed to get for my people.  So that’s it, that’s me.
