Welcome to the Kansas Counseling Association!  

My name is Andrew Secor, and I am the President of KCA for the 2018-2019 board year.  The Kansas Counseling Association is a professional association that exists to promote the profession of counseling, develop professional counselors, and to advocate for the provision of counseling services across a wide range of practice settings.  The KCA is the only professional association in the State of Kansas dedicated to advancing the interests of all professional counselors.  I would like to invite you to join the KCA and invite you to attend the KCA Spring Conference March 6-8th, 2019 at the Oread Hotel in Lawrence, KS.  Thank you for your interest in our association and I hope to see you in the near future.


Andrew Secor,

KCA (Kansas Counseling Association) is a branch of the American Counseling Association (ACA).  It is a non-profit professional association.  It serves its members to advance the field of counseling in the broad areas of career, education, and mental health.  KCA acts as an umbrella organization for six Regions within Kansas and nine Divisions for all areas of counseling within the state of Kansas. 

It is imperative more than ever that we work together to support the mental health of all Kansans.  To do this, we must work together and advocate for all the needs of our state.  

We need you.
