Column = 
If(
    CONTAINSSTRING('Table'[Month], "January")
    || CONTAINSSTRING('Table'[Month], "February")
    || CONTAINSSTRING('Table'[Month], "March")
    || CONTAINSSTRING('Table'[Month], "April")
    || CONTAINSSTRING('Table'[Month], "May")
    || CONTAINSSTRING('Table'[Month], "June")
    || CONTAINSSTRING('Table'[Month], "July")
    || CONTAINSSTRING('Table'[Month], "August")
    || CONTAINSSTRING('Table'[Month], "September")
    || CONTAINSSTRING('Table'[Month], "October")
    || CONTAINSSTRING('Table'[Month], "November")
    || CONTAINSSTRING('Table'[Month], "December"),
    1,
    0
)


Then create a measure in which you can do 2 things to get the countrows of requirement.

Measure2 = CALCULATE( COUNTROWS('Table'), 'Table'[Column]=1)

or

CountRowsMeasure = SUM('Table'[Column])


Thank you.

Month Count = 
SUMX (
    VALUES ( 'Month Filter'[Month] ),
    COUNTROWS ( 
        FILTER ( 
            'Table',
            CONTAINSSTRING ( 'Table'[Month], 'Month Filter'[Month] )
        )
    )
)
