TL;DR: Consisting of online courses, ebooks, videos, podcasts AND an active blog with a collection of experts, there are few marriage counseling centers that offer more helpful tools for couples than Dr. Corey Allan’s

Did you know the average couple lives unhappily for six years before seeking counseling? As a Marriage and Family Therapist, as well as a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Ph.D. in Family Therapy, Dr. Corey Allan knows this firsthand.

Corey also knows marriage is one of the most important relationships in people’s lives and is worth fighting for, which is why he founded Simple Marriage, an innovative company that offers counseling in a convenient and effective way.

“The whole goal of Simple Marriage is to try to help people,” he said. “You can get quality, trusted resources and all you have to do is have Internet.”

And that’s not all. I spoke with Corey to learn more about the ins and outs of Simple Marriage and how he’s working to remove the stigma that surrounds therapy.

A one-of-a-kind program

What makes Simple Marriage stand out from the crowd is it is one of the only centers to solely focus on counseling for people who are married, offering both online and offline treatments to couples.

Whether you prefer in-person sessions, webinars or a combination of everything Simple Marriage brings to the table, Corey said it always starts with yourself.

“The main thing to realize is that marriage is designed to work on you – you’re not designed to work on it,” he said.

A one-of-a-kind program

Corey’s main mantra is that life and marriage are choices, but he also follows five principles in his work:

  1. Grow deeper spiritually.
  2. Keep it simple.
  3. Be passionate.
  4. Live in community with others.
  5. Enjoy the ride.

As you can see by the first principle, religion plays an important role in Corey’s life and his teachings. However, his number one goal with Simple Marriage is to reach couples before problems become problems — no matter their religious affiliation or lack thereof.

“The main thing I’m a proponent of is health and truth,” he said. “It works for me, but I also don’t want to preach because that’s not the point. The point is to try to help marriages be better.”

Making therapy less taboo

While Corey is proud that Simple Marriage now sees 130,000 unique visitors a month and continues to grow, he said he will always remain dedicated to his primary mission: keeping his advice straightforward, simple and honest.

He’s also dedicated to upholding the importance of marriage and getting rid of the shame that often comes with seeking counseling by utilizing the accessibility of the Internet to continue creating a supportive environment.

“There are still sections of the population and people in general who view therapy as something only for crazy people, but I think what we all fail to realize is that we’re all crazy,” he said. “Anytime you can have a professional in your corner who will be an advocate for what you want in your relationship, it helps you see things better.”
