Brooke Thingvold



Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

My name is Brooke (they/them) and I am a pre-licensed couple and family therapist. I love working with LGBTQIA+ children ages 5 and up, adults, parents, and families. I aim to provide inclusive and affirming care for all people, and within that approach I have most experience in supporting those with anxiety and/or depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD/C-PTSD), non-suicidal self-harm, suicidal ideation, and any history of trauma within the family.


Every person and family needs support that is tailored to their therapeutic goals. I draw from narrative, behavioral, emotion-focused, trauma-informed, and intersectional approaches to create therapeutic structure. We can utilize interventions like creating life-story timelines, emotion-coaching, drawing our inner experiences, inner child work, and skill-based techniques

like practicing new ways to safely communicate emotions. My goal is to get to know not just the client but the family, societal, and historical contexts in which they live.

My background is in family science research as well as family therapy. If applicable, I will integrate current knowledge on the

neurophysiology of trauma and the impact that systemic oppression has on the mental and physical health of people from marginalized communities. By centering growth and curiosity in the pursuit of staying up-to-date on family sciences, I hope to provide meaningful support through all life and family stressors.

I am also trained in SMART, a sensorimotor approach to working with children that includes attachment building, somatic regulation, and trauma reprocessing.

Brooke is in-network with Blue Cross Blue Shield, HealthPartners, Cigna, UCare, and UCare PMAP insurances. Please double check with your network to ensure coverage. (Brooke bills under Dr. Kai Gunty, PhD.)
