Allen Koehn, poet and author of “Dancing At The Threshold“, is a native Californian, raised in Hollywood, but that’s a story of its own. His journey took him to Princeton Seminary, a Master of Divinity degree, and a number of years as a Presbyterian pastor. He found he liked the counseling aspect of his work, and so he went back to school at Fuller Seminary and earned a Doctor of Ministry in counseling. Private practice as a therapist was very satisfying and led to training as a Jungian analyst. For a number of years, he was the Executive Director of the C.G. Jung Institute of Los Angeles. From there, he served on the faculty of the Masters in Counseling program at Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara from which he retired in 2016. He now serves as Emeritus Professor. He lives in Los Olivos, California with his wife, artist Rebecca Gomez. He continues to have a small private practice, which Allen loves.
