A very sensitive person himself, Michael uses his wonderful sense of humor in his treatment approach.
Gaile Nixon, Director of Patient Care
As the very first patient, Gaile knows firsthand what it’s like to be a bedwetter, and the sensitivity that goes along with it.

Gaile also conducts most of the consultations with first time callers, and loves to offer hope to people.

As a former teacher and director of an early childhood development center, Jasmine brings to us her expertise in working closely with children and their families. She is a Bedwetting Treatment Counselor and Assistant Director of Treatment with an incredible gift to connect emotionally with her patients and parents. She’s especially inspired to be on our staff because of her 13 year-old daughter’s experience with a sleep disorder, and can relate to parents whose children struggle with this as well.
Lyle Danuloff, Ph.D., Consulting Psychologist
Dr. Danuloff is a Fully Licensed Clinical Psychologist and has been in practice since the early 1970′s. He has been consulting with BTC since 1984. Dr. Danuloff has intimate clinical knowledge of a bedwetter’s emotional and psychological challenges.
-Bedwetting Treatment Counselors-
Each of our Bedwetting Treatment Counselors participates in extensive training comprised of well-researched learning and procedures which have been supplemented by our own carefully designed techniques. Each Bedwetting Treatment Counselor is supervised by our Director of Treatment. Staff meetings are conducted monthly to review each patient’s progress and make sure everybody is on track.
Parents work closely with the same Bedwetting Treatment Counselor, and are guided step-by-step through all phases of treatment. Using our proven methods, the patient will permanently stop wetting the bed and benefit from a new, healthy, productive sleep pattern every night for the rest of their lives. It’s a very rewarding partnership.
