Behavioral Medicine is an interdisciplinary degree combining:

  • Health Psychology – a bio-psycho-social-spiritual approach to well-being.
  • 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 for tailoring interventions to the individual client.

Her initial training in peripheral biofeedback – heart rate, temperature, etc. – was at Applied Psychophysiology Institute of Bainbridge Island, Washington followed by supervision under John Jordy at Western Washington University.

She started studying neurofeedback with Sue Othmer in 1994, and added it to her thriving stress management practice in 1996. In 2001 she began her on-going training with Dr. Len Ochs, the inventor of the Low Energy Neurofeedback System which has become a favorite among her many tools. Kayle is certified by the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance.

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’re reducing the intensity and frequency of headaches; improving focus; lowering anxiety – it’s a team effort. Neurofeedback can be a tremendous help for most people. It’s not magic, but it can feel that way.”

Kayle loves to teach. She has presented at local, regional, national and international conferences. She is an adjunct member of the faculty at National University of Natural Medicine where she teaches Behavioral Medicine.

It is Kayle’s policy to provide free ten minute consultations, either by phone or in person, for people wishing to explore the possibility of working with her.

A survivor of multiple “mild” TBIs, Kayle has found that many of her most memorable and rewarding cases have been survivors of traumatic brain injury.

Kayle is an avid gardener and enjoys photography. The pictures of flowers on this website are a few of her collection of one of her favorite subjects. “I like to photograph flowers because they tend to sit still.”
