Seeking assistance for a mental health condition can be a difficult step, and Dr. Lanocha believes it’s critical that each patient feel understood and supported in their journey to wellness.

He develops a holistic treatment plan tailored to each patient’s needs, incorporating a broad range of evidence-based treatments including TMS, mindfulness-based techniques, and sleep therapies.
