Child Section

The Child Section of the CCBT (C-CCBT) currently offers psychological assessment and treatment services for youth and their families. The C-CCBT has special expertise in the psychosocial treatment of childhood anxiety, depression, trauma, inattention/hyperactivity, oppositional behaviors. Under the supervision of directors and licensed psychologists Charles Mueller and Brad Nakamura, C-CCBT graduate students and post-doctoral fellows provide all intervention services, including brief consultations, child therapy, parent education and training in both individual and group formats. These evidence-based services (see the State of Hawaii's Help Your Keiki website for more information on youth problems and supported treatment approaches) can be delivered in the clinic and/or at the youth’s home or school. Assessments and treatment arranged by the State of Hawaiʻi Departments of Education or Health are free for clients. Self-referred clients are offered a sliding fee scale. No third party insurance is accepted.


Eating Disorders

The Eating Disorders Clinic (ED-CCBT) is a specialty clinic treating individuals in the areas of chronic dieting, food preoccupation, use of techniques such as vomiting or fasting to lose weight, and many other signs and symptoms of disordered eating.
