Changing career

I've been a SAHM for 2 years now and am desperate to go back to work. I was a lawyer before and my husband is also a lawyer. His job requires travel for days at a time probably once a month but he could also have to do trials in other parts of the country, which could be weeks (he just started this job so we don't know exactly how many trials there will be in other states). He also will... More

I'm really proud of him on that front because I have always been shy and had trouble making and keeping friends. My husband is very outgoing and... More

Does anyone know of therapists/counselors/psychologists who provide childcare while you're in a session? It seems to me that this could be a huge untapped resource as I cannot seem to find anything anywhere. The reason I was looking is because my husband and I seriously need couples therapy and can't afford a babysitter @ $10/hr (so $20) plus a $30 copay just for once weekly appointment... More
