Dr. Thomas Interviewed by Closer Magazine (09/29/2014) About Robin William’s Death

“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.

Dr. Thomas – Featured in Life & Style Magazine (09/22/2014) about Mariah Carey

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. “

Dr. Thomas – Featured in InTouch Weekly Magazine (08/11/14) about Jessica Simpson’s Eating Disorder Problem

Constant teasing can have devastating repercussions, says LA-based psychologist Yvonne Thomas, who does not treat the star. “It’s so hurtful and painful. For Jessica, it could make her consciously or subconsciously vow to never be overweight again,” says Thomas. “She could go to extremes and overcompensate.” - Jessica’s Dangerous Spiral, 99 LBS. & Can’t Stop Dieting – InTouch Magazine, Aug 11, 2014.

Want more of the nitty-gritty on the right way to apologize? Here’s how you can work to repair your relationship and move past pain and anger.

Do it in person or on the phone. “A face-to-face or voice apology allows the other person to sense how truly sorry you really are, and that can help repair things quickly,” says Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D., a Los Angeles-based psychologist who specializes in relationships. Since it’s hard to read the emotion in e-mails and texts, people are more likely to assume they’re not genuine . . .

De-Cluttering: How and Why to Spring Clean Your Life

declutter-your-life | Marriage Counseling Los Angeles |Los Angeles PsychologistAs we enter into the month of April, several things are frequently associated with this time of year: warmer weather, flowers regenerating, and spring cleaning or what I call “DE-CLUTTERING.” In general, the concept of “clutter” is very interesting. I describe clutter as a collection of unnecessary, unused, and/or obsolete items, which may be kept in a haphazard, often excessive way beyond what would seem logical.

Clutter often can be found in places such as one’s home, workspace, and car. To me, the really fascinating part about clutter is that it can EXTERNALLY reflect a person’s INTERNAL EMOTIONAL CLUTTER. (By “emotional clutter,” I am referring to such things as unresolved feelings, thoughts, and conflicts with oneself and/or with others.)

Examples can include the following: A generally messy, chaotic home, workspace, or car can symbolize one’s INTERNAL chaos and confusion. Having EXTERNAL closets packed with stuff often can reflect how stuffed away and closeted one’s own FEELINGS AND THOUGHTS may also be. Having uncluttered and presentable FRONT rooms of one’s home, while the non-public BACK rooms are a mess, may indicate how a person shows a more polished image of oneself to the world, while covering up a less “together” part.

Creating Your Own Luck!

Couples Therapy Los Angeles - Creating Your Own LuckAs we head into the month of March, St. Patrick’s Day approaches, with its charming four-leaf clover, “luck of the Irish” folklore. In accordance with this, I thought it would be very timely and appropriate to address the subject of “luck” and how relying on luck too much can actually cause some UNWANTED consequences in one’s life.

Individuals often attribute luck as to why certain events or results happen to oneself and others. People may say that they were in the “right place at the right time” or that they had good timing when a wanted opportunity or outcome occurs. Luck certainly can play a PART in helping create desired situations and results for people, but luck probably is NOT the main reason behind why certain people get what they want in their lives.
