Cait King is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Washington. Additionally, she is licensed in the state of Pennsylvania and provides video and teletherapy to clients within both states.
Cait joins us from the East Coast where she co-founded The West Chester Therapy Group, a private practice treating couples, individuals, and families; as well as seeing clients in a private practice setting in Philadelphia, PA for the past 5 years. Cait earned her Bachelor of Science in Psychology with a minor in Law & Society from Philadelphia University. She received her Master of Science in Marriage & Family Therapy with a concentration in Sex Therapy from Thomas Jefferson University. There she interned full-time at The Council for Relationships providing therapy to couples, individuals, and families in an outpatient practice setting. She has also worked extensively outside of the “office” with clients, providing in-home family therapy; as well as therapeutic executive functions coaching for the better part of the last decade.
Cait takes a dynamic approach to therapy, with the deep understanding that trust is the keystone of the process in order for transformative change to occur. You’re not going to feel judged or like you’re “too much”. She gets that you have to feel understood (even if you don’t understand yourself at the moment) - that’s probably why you’re here! She’s skilled at working with you to cultivate perspective on actions, behaviors, and events, and understand them within a larger systemic context. Cait works with clients to unpack what is weighing them down, break down what can seem overwhelming, and take real actionable steps towards releasing themselves from limiting patterns. She places a high value on actively working with clients to maintain these changes. Cait also really enjoys staying current in the field and informs clients of relevant current psychological and relational theories and how different treatment modalities work.
