Corey Wilks, Psy.D.

Hey, I’m Dr. Corey Wilks. I’m a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, Executive Coach, writer, entrepreneur, and invited contributor for Psychology Today.

How do I define an Intentional Life?

Spending your most precious resource—time—doing meaningful, purpose-driven work that fulfills you. It’s about clarifying your Core Value, embracing your authenticity, and reaching your potential by building your life, and your business, around what resonates with you on a fundamental level.

10-Second Bio

I used to work in integrated primary care as a behavioral health provider helping people overcome seemingly insurmountable odds.

In late 2020, I stopped practicing therapy and dove head-first into entrepreneurship.

There aren’t many places online to get solid insights from psychology you can immediately apply to your life. Most experts use too much jargon, while most people writing about psychology aren’t experts.

So I set out to fix that.

Now, I use my 15+ years of psychological training in human optimization and meaning-making to write online and coach the next generation of innovators.
