About me

She has advanced training in palliative medicine, with the goal to provide additional support for children and families navigating serious illness. Dr. Lanocha has a special interest in narrative medicine, which has been a focal point of her research and scholarship. She loves the opportunity to listen to stories and work with families to provide individualized and holistic care that makes the most sense for them.

When she is not working, she loves walking and hiking around the Pacific Northwest, particularly with her husband and her dog Bowie. She also enjoys reading, yoga, cooking, and travel.

Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.
