The next big thing:

ORCA's networking event December 7th at DeNicolas Italian Restaurant!


Our partners at Person Centered Tech gave a great presentation last week on digital ethics and compliance when texting with they answered member questions. ORCA members can access videos of all that great information here.

And, if you're not yet an ORCA member, join up now so you don't miss out on this great resource. 

Here's Roy from PCT with more details about ORCA's partnership with Person Centered Tech: 


ORCA was wholeheartedly represented at this year's ACA Institute for Leadership Training by ORCA President Gianna Russo-Mitma and ORCA Secretary Sofia Jasani. The two advocated for counselors, therapists, and our clients on Capitol Hill, networked with counselors from across the country, and met with Congressional staffers. Photos below!

NAMIWALK 2018 was a huge success!

Team ORCA worked hard (and played hard) to help make a statement that access to mental healthcare is fundamental! You helped us beat our goal - in all, we raised over $3500 to support NAMI's services and advocacy efforts. Make sure to join us next year!

Coming in January...ORCA's first ever: 

Counselors of Color Reception!

The Oregon Counseling Association invites all BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) therapists to join us for an evening of community, support, and celebration! Let’s come together to create an ongoing professional and social networking space for us, by us.

Spread the word with your BIPOC colleagues!

Friday, January 18th
6:00 - 8:00pm
Location tbd
For more info, contact Sofia Jasani secretary[at]
