The THRIVE Center for Emerging Young Adults


Meet Lisa Sohn, DNP, RN, PMHNP-BC

Lisa Sohn, DNP, RN, PMHNP-BCLisa Sohn, DNP, RN, PMHNP-BC, is a board-certified nurse practitioner in psychiatry. She received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Maryland and practiced as a Registered Nurse in various emergency rooms (ER) for over seven years.

Her ER experience revealed how mental health often went ignored within the medical realm. These gaps between medical and psychiatric care motivated Lisa to pursue a career in psychiatry. She received her Doctor of Nursing Practice from the University of Maryland and is licensed in the state of Maryland as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner.

Lisa believes in the complex interrelationship of the mind (mental) and body (physical) good health depends on a balance of the two. As a psychiatric nurse practitioner, she works with clients to maintain or improve their mental health and encourages physical health. She does not practice stand-alone drug therapy, but believes in the combination of psychotherapy with pharmacology in order to effectively address mental health concerns.

In order to maintain her own mental and physical health, Lisa spends her free time with her dog, attending gym classes, golfing, socializing with friends, or simply having conversations with her family at the dinner table.
