I am just looking for a therapist or counselor for me, not marriage or couples counseling. I really prefer someone who, when I talk about issues of me not getting sleep doesn't tell me my children should be sleeping in their own beds, I shouldn't be nursing my 13 month old who isn't eating very much, etc. Any one have someone they might have heard of? I am in MD, and willing to go to Frederick, Carroll and Howard counties. Montgomery county too depending on area. Thanks
Friend of mine, very AP-friendly mama:
Best of luck.
Although any good therapist should support you in doing what YOU want to do (well, ya know, within reason! & co-sleeping & BFing at 13 mos are well within reason.) Therapist should help you meet YOUR goals, and if co-sleeping & BFing until child-led weaning are your goals, (Among others, of course) they should help you fit those into your life, not discourage you from doing them.
I've heard great things about http://www.jenniferkogan.com/index.php.

I am guessing you've already found a counselor but I thought I'd say hi anyway. So hi! I am actually opening a new private practice in Towson. I have over 10 years of experience working with families and I know first hand that motherhood isn't always spectacular. I haven't slept more than 6 hours a night myself in days because of my 9 month old but my experience really comes from working with families who have kids who act out. I am a big supporter of breastfeeding for as long as it is mutually beneficial. I had a home birth with Evelyn Mulhan that turned into a C-section this summer. Her umbilical cord was just too short. Bungee baby. Anyhow, I hope you've found a counselor who is a great fit for you. Feel free to pass my name along to any "crunchy" mom's who need a hand.
