ORCA is the Oregon branch of the American Counseling Association, representing the state in the Western Region.

ORCA’s mission is to empower Oregon's counselors and therapists to do our best, most healing work. The work we do is important, difficult, and life-changing. To care for our clients—not only in difficult moments, but also in the day-in-and-day-out and in the larger, societal sense—we need each other.

That’s where ORCA comes in. If your job is to support the mental health of Oregonians, then ORCA is here to support you.

Member Benefits

ORCA is volunteer-run and membership driven, which means that our work depends on counselors coming together as members. Some benefits of joining ORCA include: 

  • Access to a members-only listserv—great for finding referrals, joining groups, advertising, and finding resources.
  • Continuing education events with discounted fees for members 
  • Supporting a strong lobbying presence in the Capitol on behalf of counselors and family therapists. Part of our membership money funds COPACT, which advocates for things like improving clients access to mental health care  and supporting counselors’ ability to treat clients ethically, responsibly, and with care.
