Utilizing The 9 Pillars of Happiness™ to Live a Happier Life with Dr. Ellen Wong


When you go to the doctor and get blood work done, it may say you’re fine, even if that isn’t the case. When you struggle with anxiety and depression, it goes beyond simple tests and questionnaires. So how can you feel happy again?

In this episode of The Dr. Kinney Show, I sat down with Dr. Ellen Wong to discuss all things happiness. 

As an industry leader, Dr. Ellen Wong has worked with thousands of people to radically elevate their happiness, well-being, and success without the BS. Her signature framework, The 9 Pillars of Happiness™ has helped entrepreneurs, executives, and coaches amplify their health, take control of their time, improve emotional resilience, and create inner peace so they have the confidence and drive to achieve their own definition of success and joy in every aspect of their lives.

Ellen has shared her experiences and expertise through keynote speeches and corporate presentations as well as group and one-to-one coaching programs. She has been featured in Thrive Global and Business Insider, as well as many international stages and podcasts.

When she’s not working with clients, Ellen loves her downtime, trying new culinary experiences, traveling around the world, and spending time with her husband, human baby, and fur baby.


In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 


  • The problem with traditional tests for anxiety and depression
  • Dr. Wong’s search for happiness
  • The Happiness Index used by the country of Bhutan
