Lisa Richards, LCSW, BCD

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

624 W 9th St. Suite 103 San Pedro, California 90731


As a Board Certified Diplomat in Clinical Social Work, I have had the privilege of serving individuals, families and couples for over 25 years. I enjoy helping people grow their authentic power. Even as we learn, we teach. What do you want us to learn from you?

Life is full of lessons, gifts and opportunities~but will we receive  them? I offer compassion and insight, gentle humor and integrity in my work. Because every therapy situation is different, I work with clients to discover the combination of resources that feels most helpful to them.

I also strongly believe that incredible healing and growth can result from the unique, deeply human relationship between a compassionate therapist and her clients.
