Welcome to the New Jersey Counseling Association's Site

NJCA is the New Jersey branch of the American Counseling Association, an internationally recognized leader fully representing the interests of professional counselors. Your separate dues to the NJCA will be invested in improving the professional lives of counselors through education, the establishment of networking and communication links, state legislative changes and more.

As a professional association, NJCA primarily operate as a networking vehicle, a professional development body and as a representative on issues of import to our members.  NJCA is not expert on legal, licensing or related issues and is not in a position to offer specific advise to its members on such issues with regard to individual situation.  The Professional Counselor Examiners Committee of the State Board of Marriage and Family Therapy Examiners regulates the practice of professional counseling and deals with licensure and related matters. Reference to school advisors or legal counsel may also be warranted, depending on individual circumstances.

New Jersey is one of the branches included in the North Atlantic Region (NAR) of ACA.

New Jersey Counseling Association membership includes both licensed and non licensed counselors, graduate students of counseling, retired counselors, counselor educators and others - all with a unified interest in enhancing professional relationships and promoting the counseling profession.
