Meet Carolyn Koehnline!

I offer practical strategies and creative processes you can use for the rest of your life. As a coach and licensed therapist for 27 years, I’ve learned the power of compassionate witnessing and gentle guidance. As a certified journal therapist, I also share writing processes for healing and change.

Carolyn Koehnline is a Certified Journal Therapist, licensed psychotherapist, personal coach, and the creator of Gentle Approach Coaching. She has specialized for twenty-seven years in supporting people in clearing clutter from their homes, heads, hearts, and schedules to make room for what matters.

Her book, Clearing Clutter as a Sacred Act,” made’s Top Ten list for Planners & Journals. Though not strictly a planner or a journal, we included this resource because we know that clearing clutter is integral in making emotional and physical space for writing and reflection. With compassion and kindness, this book inspires readers to engage in the act of decluttering as a transformative, sacred experience. The author is a journaling expert who provides mindfulness techniques that help declutter our physical space, calendars, thoughts, and emotions.

Carolyn has written three books: Confronting Your Clutter, a children’s book called The Bear’s Gift, and her newly released book, Clearing Clutter as a Sacred Act, which includes her watercolor illustrations and poems. She is also a faculty member of the Therapeutic Writing Institute and at Journalversity. In addition to her private coaching practice, she offers self-paced solo courses, group online classes, and she shares talks and workshops in a wide variety of settings.
