Western Region

Welcome to the Western Region webpage. The American Counseling Association has four regions. The Western Region represents professional counselors who live and practice in the western part of the US, as well as the Philippines.

There are 13 states, plus the Philippines, in the Western Region: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington State, and Wyoming. ACA members who reside in any of these jurisdictions and belong to the ACA automatically belong to the ACA-Western Region.
