About Dr. Koehn
David J Koehn
On a personal note I became a psychologist because I enjoy helping people learn and grow. I wrote an article which is an offshoot of a book written by Dale Evans about her son called “Is the Angel Unaware, Unaware.” It is about my Down syndrome brother who has impacted all my family’s lives in so many positive ways. I only hope to give back to those in need to the level that Kevin, my brother, so beautifully did for us.
