Dr. Ed Santana

Dr. Ed Santana provides clinical therapy in downtown San Francisco. He is a Registered Psychotherapist and Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, and teaches advanced clinical training courses for doctoral students. His career includes a range of business, organizational, clinical, and academic experience.

He has held leadership positions as a senior management executive, clinical program director, and congressional staff member. He was executive director of one of the largest divisions of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) in Toronto, where he maintained a private practice for many years. He currently lives and practices in San Francisco, California. He is the author of Jung and Sex, and specializes in advanced treatment approaches to sexual concerns.

Clinical Approach:

  • The practice is founded on a non-judgmental, open, and compassionate approach. Confidentiality and privacy are of the highest importance, and the office has a private waiting area with a separate entry and exit from the office. 
  • In working together, we maintain that you have the answers and/or the capacity to develop them--and our work is simply to navigate how to access the deeper connections, needs, and answers unique to you.
  • The work is client-centred and focuses on what's most effective and produces real results for individual clients. The therapeutic approach is highly integrative and includes important emphasis from many diverse schools of psychology, including important aspects of Jungian and psychodynamic approaches.

Please feel free to get in touch with any questions or book a complimentary consultation.
