Dr. Cotas-Girard is trained in Therapeutic Assessments and considers her evaluations to be brief therapeutic interventions that may allow healing and change to occur through the process of self-discovery and reworking of narratives. She works through a collaborative model and believes that clients are the experts in their own lives. She strives to answer client's assessment questions through personalized letters, storybooks, and/or fables to help them understand their assessment results without jargon and in developmentally-appropriate ways. 

Dr. Bianes received specialized training in child assessment and has extensive experience assessing differential diagnoses of children and adolescents. She was trained on assessing children ages 1.5-18 years old on Autism Spectrum Disorder through Kaiser Permanente’s San Francisco Autism Clinic.

She completed comprehensive psychological evaluations of children and adolescents at Andrus in her internship year. In addition, Dr. Bianes is also trained and interested in adult assessments, particularly understanding the importance of integrating each client's unique background and lived experiences to help them find the answers they are seeking.
