Dr. Dana Dorfman Owner, Parent Consultant, Lecturer, Aspiring Author Education New York, NY
About Dana
I’m a psychotherapist with over 25 years experience treating children, adolescents and parents. I lecture, lead parenting seminars throughout the tristate area and I’m frequently quoted in parenting publications and sites. Im currently writing a book called The Parenting Paradox; it’s a book about achievement and values. While I am a parenting expert professionally, I am not a parenting expert at home! I am the mom of a 16 year old daughter and 12 year old son. I struggle with the day to day challenges of managing work and motherhood- supporting my kids, attending to their emotional needs while working, writing a book and trying to maintain my own sanity. Fortunately, I am passionate about my work and my family - and for this, I am grateful!

Anticipation is always worse than the reality...

What special skill, talent or gift would you like to give back to the community?

As mentioned above, I have expertise in child development and the psychology of parenting. I write, speak and facilitate groups on the topic and I’d gladly offer services to the community.

What is your biggest business challenge right now?

Marketing & Social Media

What do you want to achieve in 2018, personally and professionally?

Though the year feels like it's drawing to a close, I'd love to expand my platform, solidify an agent for my book, help my daughter apply to college, plan my son't Bar Mitzvah, write more, line up some more speaking engagements, network....and meditate - not necessarily in this order!

What is one thing that would be game-changing for your business right now?

Securing a book agent

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

Hey Mama seems like an ideal networking and support for my professional and personal needs. I imagine (hope?) that my expertise in child development, parenting , and working motherhood (this was the topic of my doctoral dissertation) would be valuable to members and I’d love to contribute to the community in this way. I would benefit from the opportunities to meet other working moms who are also juggling business ownership- I’d welcome any tips, insights and opportunities to network with like-minded women.
