Dr. Corey Wilks is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, Executive Coach, writer, entrepreneur, and invited contributor for Psychology Today with over 15 years of psychological experience.

He grew up in rural Appalachia and went to Marshall University, where he earned his Psy.D.

Throughout his doctoral training and after getting licensed, he worked as a Behavioral Health Provider in integrated primary care—predominately working with addiction recovery programs.

After seeing so many people struggle to build their life around doing meaningful, purpose-driven work that fulfilled them, he started writing online to help people get more out of life through understanding and applying practical concepts from psychology.

In 2020, he stopped practicing therapy to explore human flourishing, fulfillment, and what gets in our way.

Since then, he’s worked with some of the top creators and communities in the Creator Economy space to help them build fulfilling lives and thriving businesses.

Now, he shares these insights in his newsletter, Creator Alchemy, to help creators reach their potential by exploring the psychology of human flourishing, online business, and content creation.
