Corey Wilks Psy.D.


Corey Wilks, Psy.D., is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and Executive Coach 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—patients, friends, and family—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 became a Certified Professional Coach through the College of Executive Coaching to make the mental shift away from the pathology model of clinical psychology and toward the wellness model of positive psychology and started offering personal and executive coaching services. Now, he coaches entrepreneurs, content creators, and other driven individuals, and creates content to help people be more intentional with how they live, work, and create.

His latest project is Intentional Life Design: a 5-week live cohort-based course focused on helping people overcome limiting beliefs, think bigger, and do work that matters.
