Dale A. Nader, MSW, LCSW.


Individuals, Couples, Families, and Group counseling, case management (including medication monitoring / referral), and information and referral services.

My Practice: 

I began working in the Mental Health and Chemical Dependency fields in 1981.

I have worked primarily in community-based, not-for-profit agencies, and have worked as a therapist, a clinical supervisor, a clinical director, and as an administrator at various points throughout my career.

My theoretical approach to counseling is a Cognitive-Behavioral approach which research has shown to be one of the most effective methods of therapy.  I also utilize a Family Systems approach.  I work with individuals, couples, families, and groups.

I moved to the Portland area in August of 2001, and began my private practice in February, 2002.

My office is conveniently located on the 2nd floor at 2732 NE Broadway, Portland, OR 97232, on a major public transportation route.  I also have an office in Sandy, Oregon.

I graduated from Florida State University in 1983 with a Bachelor of Science in Social Work, and in 1987 with a Master of Social Work (clinical).

I was originally licensed as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (L.C.S.W.) in the State of Florida in 1989, and became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of Oregon in 2001.  I have been continuously licensed in my field since 1989.
