Claudia Minvielle, International Specialist
She has worked in the medical field for many years and has skills necessary for communicating in English, as well as Spanish. She has been on staff with us since 2007. Claudia is kind and caring, and understands the enormous impact that bedwetting can have on a person’s self-esteem.
Bedwetting Treatment Counselors
Each of our Bedwetting Treatment Counselors participates in comprehensive training comprised of well-researched learning and training procedures which have been supplemented by our own carefully designed techniques. Each Bedwetting Counselor is supervised by our Director of Treatment who has worked with the center for over 35 years. 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.

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.
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 has the skill to effectively deliver our treatment process, and the gift to connect emotionally with her patients. She’s especially inspired to be on our staff because of her nine year-old daughter’s sleep disorder, and can relate to parents whose children struggle with this as well.
