If you can justify transforming z==Log[-I] into E^z==-I then

In[1]:= Reduce[E^z==-I,z]

Out[1]= C[1] ∈ Integers && z==(-I/2)*Pi+ (2*I)*Pi*C[1]

You might try that on other problems and see how often that will give you what you want. If you have Reduce[z==something,z] that does not usually seem to give you all solutions, you need to make it work a little harder than that.
