Meet Our Experts

Barbara Moore, Founder & CEO

An Enuresis Specialist with nearly five decades of experience, Ms. Moore has practiced bedwetting treatment since 1973, and has facilitated expert care for over 50,000 patients worldwide – for children, teens, and adults.

When her daughter, Gaile, was wetting the bed, Ms. Moore searched for years to find a solution.  Doctors suggested surgery, psychotherapy, and medication to end her bedwetting, but nothing worked.  When Ms. Moore discovered a groundbreaking scientific study about the bedwetter’s deep sleep pattern, she found the answer.  She assembled a research team, developed a breakthrough bedwetting treatment method, and established the first enuresis clinic of its kind in the world: Bedwetting Treatment Center (BTC).  This is her legacy.

She has appeared on numerous television shows and radio programs to educate concerned parents about the complexities of bedwetting, and the fallout of the poor quality sleep pattern every bedwetter has inherited.  This led to numerous invitations to speak at schools and various institutions around the world.

Ms. Moore is still at the helm of BTC after 47 years.  She and her staff of treatment therapists have seen companies claiming to end bedwetting come and go.  The Center’s longevity is attributed to each member of the staff having an unwavering commitment to end the stress and frustration that every bedwetter and their families have to endure.

-Our Directors-

Michael Stallsmith, M.A., Sp.A., President

Michael is a school psychologist, and has been on staff with Bedwetting Treatment Center since 1982.  He specializes in treatment for teenage and adult males.  It has been his personal mission to consistently connect with the medical community and school systems to educate them about bedwetting and its relationship to the deep sleep disorder.  He feels the more people that know about the truth of how to properly end bedwetting, the sooner suffering will end. 


Gaile Nixon, Director of Patient Care

Gaile is our Founder’s daughter–and the very first patient.  She knows firsthand what it’s like to be a bedwetter, and the hardships associated with it.  This makes her the perfect person to oversee patient care, and to ensure all patients’ needs are being met through structured milestones.  Gaile also conducts most of our First Step Consultations, and loves to open families’ eyes to a world without bedwetting.


Claudia Minvielle, Director of Treatment

Claudia is our Director of Treatment, and oversees our staff of expert Bedwetting Therapists.  She worked in the medical field for many years, and communicates in English and Spanish.  She has been on staff since 2007.  Claudia also serves as our senior Bedwetting Therapist, and many of her patients are from Spanish-speaking countries.


Jasmine Henson, Assistant Director of Treatment

As a former teacher and director of an early childhood development center, Jasmine brings her expertise in working closely with children and their families.  She is both a Bedwetting Therapist, and our Assistant Director of Treatment. She’s especially inspired to be on our staff because of her 15 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’s been consulting with BTC since 1984.  Dr. Danuloff has intimate clinical knowledge of a bedwetter’s emotional and psychological challenges, and he is on hand to provide counsel should a family request it.

-Our Treatment Therapists-

Each of our Bedwetting Treatment Therapists participates in extensive training comprised of well-researched procedures which have been supplemented by our own carefully-designed techniques.  Each Bedwetting Therapist is supervised by our Director of Treatment.  Staff meetings are conducted monthly to review each and every patient in our care.

Parents work closely with the same Bedwetting Therapist throughout their treatment process, and are guided step-by-step. Using our proven methods, the patient will have the ability to achieve healthy sleep every night, and awaken in a dry bed every morning!


Laura Arquette, M.A.

As a former child bedwetter, Laura is especially compassionate to a familyʼs needs. Her son was also a patient at our enuresis clinic, which inspired her to join our staff.  Laura has a background in special education, which allows her to work seamlessly with issues relating to ADD and ADHD.


Susan Kurnat, R.N., B.S.N.

Formerly a pediatric nurse for 20 years, Sue cared for infants through young adults. While working at hospitals, Sue realized how much she enjoyed the teaching aspect of nursing, and the opportunity to work with a child and their family. At BTC, she continues to make the kind of differences she most appreciates –and her patients do, too.


Lorie Pivetz, R.N., B.S.N.

Lorie is a practicing nurse in a major hospital. Most of Lorieʼs 30 years of nursing experience has been in maternity. At BTC, her skills and experience to help guide families through the program is invaluable. She also has a personal interest in helping end bedwetting since one of her own sons suffered with the condition. His time as a patient at BTC led to her joining our staff.


Theresa Ray, R.N., B.S.N.

Theresa has practiced in major hospitals in the medical-surgical field for more than 20 years.  She enjoys the teaching aspect of her job, which led her to the BTC. Theresa finds it very rewarding to help families through the pain and suffering associated with bedwetting, and she is a true partner to any parent.


Mary Anne Rice, R.N.

Formerly a nurse in a busy pediatric practice, Mary Anne counseled parents in areas of illness and growth and development. She understands the frustrations of families trying to stop bedwetting through prescription drugs, or who are told that their child will outgrow it.  She has been part of BTC’s staff since 1999.
