EXCERPT: “Unplugging your devices and taking a time out from swiping, scrolling, and surfing can make you more productive, strengthen your relationships, and improve your sleep,” says Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D., a Los Angeles–based psychologist specializing in anxiety and relationships.
EXCERPT: “Married women who say they are totally fine with sex once a week or twice a month aren’t that unusual,” admits Los Angeles-based psychologist Yvonne Thomas. Stress, feeling tired and dodging life’s curveballs — think an unplanned expense or untimely illness — all get in the way of a couple’s desire to get it on. “Complacency and taking each other for granted also frequently and unknowingly set in, making things feel too predictable and even boring,” Thomas adds. “Sometimes it feels like the thrill, the challenge and the mystery are gone once a couple gets married.”

EXCERPT: Depression leaves you withdrawn and checked out, and that can manifest as a loss of appetite. “If your brain is preoccupied with negative thoughts, you may forget to eat or lose interest in cooking or preparing meals,” says Yvonne Thomas, PhD, Los Angeles-based psychologist specializing in depression and self-esteem.
“When someone dies at their own hand, it’s natural to have a head full of questions and ‘what-ifs.’” At least his inner circle has strength in numbers. “The key thing to remember is they’re all in this together,” grief specialist Dr. Yvonne Thomas tells Closer. “They need to share the grief but also the wonderful moments they had with Robin – the personal stories that touched them. That’s the way to keep the memory alive.” – Fallen Funnyman Robin Williams – Closer Magazine, Sep 29, 2014.
But Nick hopes Mariah will get better and he won’t be forced to bring her lowest moments to light. And experts say having kids could actually stop her from spiraling out of control this time. “The first time she had a breakdown, she didn’t have children,” notes Psychologist Yvonne Thomas. “This time she has two young babies who need her, and that could help.” – Divorce Shocker, Mariah’s Nervous Breakdown - Life & Style Magazine, Sep 22, 2014. “
