Reuven Rosen, LMSW
Reuven is a family man who tailors his therapeutic approach to each client, utilizing tools from Positive Psychology, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. He works with adolescents, adults, couples, and families to manage anxiety, depression, and relationship conflicts.
When working with couples and families, Reuven works to build connection and strong relationships. He helps his clients to identify patterns that lead to disconnection and to cultivate new emotional bonds. Reuven recognizes that healthy relationships are an important component in living a meaningful life and that having a strong support system from loved ones gives strength during adversity.
When working with individuals, Reuven strives to help his clients accomplish big goals in a gentle and supportive atmosphere. He sees each client as an individual and builds rapport based on mutual respect. Regardless of what is brought to the table, he recognizes the importance of positive intentions and helps bring them to fruition by empowering and motivating his clients. He never pushes his clients in ways that feel uncomfortable; instead, he partners with them to discover their strengths and values.
He believes in the goodness of every person and every relationship. His professional journey began as a teacher, where he quickly discovered his passion for supporting students’ emotional health. From there, he became a parent coach, helping clients manage children with intense behaviors. He then returned to school and earned an additional master’s degree in social work from the University of Maryland, where he worked with teens and families in intensive outpatient and partial hospitalization programs.
Reuven looks forward to working with you to help you realize your best, most meaningful life.

Do you take insurance?At this time, The Calming Mind is not in-network with any insurance carriers.
How long can I expect to be in therapy?To be effective, therapy must be goal driven and time limited. Length of treatment is dependent on factors that are specific to each person and what they're going through. At the beginning of treatment, we work together to mutually agreed upon goals that help to guide us in therapy. We also use validated scales throughout treatment to measure and track symptoms. Our clients typically begin seeing progress by their sixth session.
Can I do both in-person and virtual sessions?Therapy is meant to be "client-centered", meaning that it should help support each person's goals and in the way that they feel most comfortable. At The Calming Mind, we provide both teletherapy and in-person therapy out of our Bethesda office. We can adjust your treatment plan to utilize the benefits of both teletherapy and in-person sessions to aid in your progress. We recommend discussing your preferences with your therapist to help create the most effective treatment plan for you.
Do you use evidence-based interventions?Yes! Our staff is extensively trained in the most effective evidence-based therapy models for adolescents, adults, and their families. Each therapist has his/her speciality that they use to best help their clients accomplish their goals. Some of the therapy models that we use at The Calming Mind include, ACT, CBT, EFT, and EMDR.
What is different about your approach?Therapy is meant to be transparent and useful, and that is why The Calming Mind is dedicated towards using evidence-based interventions and teaching each client the necessary skills and strategies so that they can use them on their own. Our goal is for you to become your own therapist over time, by becoming better attuned with yourself, learning what strategies work for you, and engaging the resources that we create together. Therapy is not meant to be a one size fits all approach and this is why our staff has dedicated itself to being life-long learners to provide the best care to our clients.
