Kayle excels at helping her clients identify behavioral issues that are influencing their health. Working with them, she helps bring about lasting change. “I work in partnership with my clients to reach our goals. It doesn’t matter whether we are reducing the intensity and frequency of headaches, improving focus, lowering anxiety – it must be a team effort.”
Behavioral Medicine is an interdisciplinary degree combining:
- Health Psychology – a bio-psycho-social-spiritual approach to wellbeing.
- Psychophysiology – how thoughts and beliefs affect the function of the body as well as how behavior patterns can affect the mind. Applied Psychophysiology employs the regulation techniques of general biofeedback and neurofeedback.
- Learning Theory and Curriculum Design – important pieces for tailoring interventions to the individual client.
Kayle’s initial training in peripheral biofeedback (heart rate, temperature, etc.) was at Applied Psychophysiology Institute on Bainbridge Island, Washington, followed by supervision under John Jordy at Western Washington University. She started studying neurofeedback in 1994 and added it to her stress management practice in 1996. Kayle is certified by the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance.
