Career and Personal Counselor | Career Coach

Since 2001, Andrea Killion has successfully assisted thousands of adult clients with dozens of career and employment issues ranging from deciding on a career path to preparing for a job interview. Andrea is intuitive, sensitive, empowering, and resourceful – varied qualities that are often hard to find in a counselor.

Her counseling style calls upon techniques from multiple theoretical orientations, although the majority of her work is classified as solution-focused and cognitive-behavioral, enabling clients to overcome difficulties in a period of time notably shorter than clients working with counselors that utilize longer term approaches. Each client develops, in conjunction with Andrea, a realistic and highly satisfying career and/or educational plan, with the intention of it being followed through accordingly, ultimately leading to successful results.

Ms. Killion is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Oregon and abides by the Code of Ethics of the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors & Therapists. She earned a M.S. in Counseling with specializations in Career and College Counseling from San Francisco State University. In addition, she has a B.A. in Psychology from U.C. Santa Cruz. She is a member of the  National Career Development Association, Oregon Counseling Association, Oregon Career Development Association, and the American Counseling Association. Attending continuing education workshops each year enables her to add to the array of skills utilized within her work, becoming informed of the latest developments in her field. In addition, Andrea receives continuing education units towards her certification as a  National Certified Counselor (NCC), the highest level of certification available to counselors nationwide. She is also a Master Career Counselor, honored by NCDA for the high level of expertise and range of career counseling services she offers to clients. She is one of only a handful of practitioners in Oregon to hold this designation.

Andrea works comfortably and successfully with adult clients from highly diverse backgrounds of all ages and stages.  She welcomes you to read her blog posts on various career related issues.
