Michael G. Quirke, MFT

For the past 12 years, I have focused my clinical practice on helping people whose anger is harming their relationships or careers.  These anger management skills groups have been ongoing since 2001.   I have also offered them in various community mental heath settings including the San Francisco Child Abuse Prevention Center/ Talkline and Mills Peninsula Wellness Program.

As a licensed marriage and family therapist, my clinical background includes providing direct service in a variety of settings such as substance abuse treatment, partial hospitalization program, supervised family visitation, family therapy for at risk families, and child abuse treatment.

I have pursued advanced clinical training in the assessment and treatment of the common cofactors for patients with anger problems. These include extensive trauma treatment training as well as advanced training in treating anxiety and mood disorders.

My background also includes providing clinical supervision for therapists in training at Golden Gate University, Bay Area Children First, University of San Francisco and Golden Gate Counseling.

Currently I am the clinical director of Golden Gate Counseling.  We offer ongoing anger management skills groups in San Francisco and San Mateo and also provide counseling / psychotherapy for couples and families.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.


Thank you,
