Dr. Thomas Featured in the April 2017 Issue of Success Magazine and Success.com “5 Ways Being Vulnerable Can Make You Happier” (04/17/2017)

5 Ways Being Vulnerable Can Make You HappierEXCERPT:  “Being vulnerable actually takes more courage and inner strength than people realize,” says Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D., a psychologist in Los Angeles. Which is why you probably don’t want to start your vulnerability journey on a first date. You want to know your feelings will be protected and cared for by the person with whom you share them, such as your parent, spouse or friend.

Dr. Thomas Featured on Reader’s Digest “What Is Your Social Media Profile Really Saying About You?” (04/10/2017)

los angeles pyschologist, celebrity psychologistEXCERPT: One foolproof way to make sure you’re sending the right message to your followers, friends, and fans is to be very direct about how you feel, what you think and what matters to you. This might be easier said than done, but as psychologist Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D., explains, it’s less likely someone will misinterpret if everything is easy to understand. “Communicate in a way that is direct, clear, and specific, since it is too easy for people to misinterpret, misunderstand, and even feel upset by things on social media. State your feelings such as, ‘I am so happy now!’ ‘I’ve been having a chill, relaxing day,’ etc. to help decrease the chances of people assuming or guessing what you’re feeling, which frequently is incorrect,” she says.

Dr. Thomas Featured on Reader’s Digest “10 Random Acts of Kindness That Can Change Someone’s Life Right Now” (03/27/2017)

Los Angeles Best Psychologist, Best Psychologist in LAEXCERPT: Friendship is always a give and take—the trick is to know when to give. While you might be raking in extra cash one month, your treasured friend might be struggling to make ends meet. Or, while you’re in a stable relationship, your friend may have been dumped—again. Martinez says stepping up when it’s your turn to help out a pal is an act of kindness they’ll likely never forget. “Send someone going through a tough time flowers,” she suggests. “Drop them a note and let them know you are thinking of them and what you appreciate about them. While small, these meaningful gestures will surely be appreciated by the recipient.” Or, if you’re financially able, psychologist Yvonne Thomas says to pick up a tab when times are tough for your friend, or volunteer to help them out when they’re overwhelmed or need encouragement.

best psychologist in Los Angeles, best psychotherapist  in LAEXCERPT: As a psychologist in Los Angeles for over 20 years, working with clients on a variety of issues, I have repeatedly found that affirmations typically DON’T work alone by themselves.

Dr. Thomas Featured on Monster.com “5 Ways To Be a Better Communicator at Work” (03/06/2017)

better work communication, career advice, best psychologist in LAEXCERPT: In some ways, being a “yes man” can serve you well in your career, but it’s easy to slip into the “I need to please everyone” mode and get overwhelmed. Bite off only as much as you can chew at one time.

“Remember that age-old adage: Actions speak louder than words,” says Yvonne Thomas, a Los Angeles-based psychologist who specializes in career issues. “Be consistent in doing what you say and saying what you do.”

If you say you’re going to finish a PowerPoint presentation by Friday, do it. If you can’t do it, don’t commit. It’s better to say no to something upfront than fail to complete the assignment.

“This is critical in business because you gain credibility, trust and respect on the job,” Thomas says.
