About Margot Brown

As a native of California, I have lived in the San Francisco Bay Area since birth. I have worked in a wide range of industries from military to high-tech.   My counseling style is straightforward and solution focused. In my recently released new book, I wrote,:"KICKSTART YOUR RELATIONSHIP NOW! Move On or Move Out", to help others find a new way of relating within themselves and with their intimate partner. The key is to remember that “Everything Begins With YOU!” Once you learn how to respect yourself, love yourself, identify your own needs and wants, then you can turn to your partner and begin the dialogue.

In my book, "Kickstart Your Relationship Now! Move On or Move Out",  I provide  a key tool for couples to follow.  It’s called the 72-Hour Rule. It is my solution to helping couples stop arguing about the past. To have a successful relationship, both partners must adhere to the 72-hour rule. Couples often use the past in both language and in time. The goal is to be present in the HERE AND NOW both in the language you use as you speak to your spouse as well as an actual time line.  The rule says that they are only allowed to talk about the upsetting behavior or situation if it has happened in the past 72 hours, otherwise you have to let it go.  We all deserve to be happy, and to have peace of mind. I think people want it, but they don’t know how to get there, so they just keep doing the same thing over and over. I want to help them get out of the rut.  "Kickstart Your Relationship Now! Move On or Move Out"....is written in easy language for everyone to understand. As a licensed marriage family therapist with a doctorate in psychology, and having counseled thousands of couples over the past two decades, I suggest couples read a page a day to do their own therapy! Whatever you decide, I wish you well. 

Margot Brown Success Stories

Stay at home and work it out.

Couples dealing with general stress

Kickstart Your Relationship Now, Move On or Move Out, really was great. Easy to read and we did it as a team and it was A HUGE BOOST to our marriage. We actually did our own therapy together. We've been married 15 years and it was not good for the last 8mos, but your book really saved our marriage. Myhusband said last nite, "I feel closer to you now then when we got married."  WOW! Great book! Thanks.more

Couples considering divorce

Well, it was pretty much over, but your book helped us iron out what the issues were. It was painful at first, but it really helped. I thought it was better than seeing a counselor and my husband said he was glad we could read it and do the work ourselves. Communication is much better.more
