Sorry I'm not familiar with the area. I just Googled "sexual abuse survivor therapy San Francisco" and found this listing for someone who has trauma as a specialty. Some other listings include a support group for Latino men who are survivors, one for victims of abuse by clergy. I share the good luck wishes - if your first few contacts don't feel helpful, please keep on looking. Even if these links aren't quite what you are after, it's possible that a phone call or email to them could identify some more resources in that network.

Call SFSI and ask them. They have an extensive set of resources for referrals.
