About Me

My name is Jorge Santana, and I look forward to the opportunity to work with you! I bring a strengths-based approach that centers my clients' individual needs and goals. I have over 20 years of experience working with young people, families, and individuals in many different settings and all along the spectrum of need. My direct experience working in the community strongly informs my individual work. One of my mentors taught me to always try to work myself out of a job, and I bring this mentality to my individual work by focusing on supporting and empowering my clients towards self-sufficiency. I am a licensed independent clinical social worker and received my Masters in Social Work from Boston College. I look forward to working together towards your goals!

Jorge was and is very helpful and kind to my daughter. We value his expertise and we are grateful for his help!

I can't say enough how helpful Jorge has been, or how complete his expertise is.

Jorge is by far one of the most patient, empathetic, and supportive therapists I’ve ever worked with. I would recommend anyone who’s ready to make positive changes and let go of things that are no longer serving them to work with him.

Jorge is a very knowledgeable therapist that is helping with perspective and direction in managing my emotions.

I’ve been to therapy before, and it didn’t do much for me, however, Jorge has been a great listener, teacher, and friend. He has given me confidence at times where I felt like I’m at a very low point and helps me calm down my motor mind. Since starting teencounseling.com therapy with him I have been able to already see an improvement in my life and I’m super grateful. I would recommend Jorge and teencounseling.com to anyone.

As someone who is new to therapy and opening up in general I find Jorge very easy to talk to. He has a calm demeanor and seems to genuinely listen when I talk. He is honest and up front that change isn't going to occur over night but offers immediate small step solutions to help get started on resolving the problem. Iv only had a couple of sessions so far, but feel I am in the hands of a very competent therapist who can and will guide me through my current situation. I am very grateful for being matched with Jorge and therapy is turning out to not be the stigma which I had in my mind prior to this experience.

Sessions with Jorge always leave you feeling lifted up like you can conquer the world. You can tell that he cares about his patients and more than anything wants to see us succeed! I can tell he genuinely remembers what we talked about in previous sessions and is always working towards bettering your confidence! I’ve only done a few sessions with him so far and have already felt like I’m moving in the right direction to better myself. Jorge is truly a great therapist and he makes therapy not as scary as it first seems.
