Excerpt: You’re Eating More (Or Less) Than Usual : Depression leaves you withdrawn and checked out, and that can manifest as a loss of appetite.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.
The article “Top 10 Signs You Should See A Doctor For Depression,” which was published by CityTrend.com.ng, interviewed Los Angeles psychologist Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D. The piece discusses some telltale warnings that you may be suffering from depression, and goes on to encourage anyone dealing with these symptoms to seek out professional treatment.
Excerpt: “During the first year of marriage, some major decisions often are being made such as if finances should be combined or not; who should pay for what; who does which household chore; and how to give each other adequate space for ‘me’ time, friends and family time, and couple time so that no one feels neglected,” explains Los Angeles-based psychologist, Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D. “In the first year of marriage, couples must learn and practice the skills of how to compromise and work as a team more than ever before, both of which aren’t always easy to do.”
The article “The Biggest Hurdles Couples Face During the First Year of Marriage” was written by Lindsay Tigar of MarthaStewartWeddings.com, who interviewed Los Angeles psychologist and relationship therapist Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D. The piece discusses some common bumps in the road that newlyweds can experience, as well as some suggestions on how to best navigate these issues.
Excerpt: “OK, so this is a big one. Unlike where to live, or where to go on vacation, creating a human isn’t something that can be met with compromise. That’s why, as Los Angeles-based psychologist Yvonne Thomas tells me, disagreeing on whether or not to have a baby can be a huge deal breaker.”
The article “11 Disagreements That Might Be The End Of Your Relationship, Because Some Fights Are Hard To Come Back From” was written by Carolyn Steber of Bustle.com, who interviewed Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D., a Los Angeles psychologist whose specialties include couples counseling. The piece details some make or break issues that can cause rifts in relationships that could potentially be too severe to mend.
EXCERPT: “Though social media stalking is normal, it doesn’t mean it’s healthy. ‘From a mental health perspective, you shouldn’t keep tabs on your ex via social media because you can’t have a genuine, clean break and really move forward while you’re still staying in your ex’s life, even if it is remotely through social media,’ says Yvonne Thomas, PhD, a Los Angeles-based psychologist who specializes in self-esteem and relationships. ‘As I tell my clients, social stalking is like taking the scab off of the wound that’s starting to heal from the breakup and then having to start the healing process all over again.’ In other words, it creates a vicious cycle that becomes more and more frustrating and hurtful as time goes on. Ugh.”

Excerpt: “[Mild jealousy] can indicate that the partners are still in love with each other enough to care and feel threatened by the idea of [their] partner being attracted to someone else or that someone else is attracted to [their] partner,” Yvonne Thomas, licensed psychologist, tells Bustle. “This mild jealousy ‘mistake’ can actually breathe some life into a relationship that one or both partners may have felt was complacent or stagnant.”

Although many of your favorite memories and experiences have been shared with your partner, you might also be quick to blame them when you’re going through a funky phase. The truth is, if you’re unhappy in your relationship, it’s likely a mix of disconnect and what’s personally happening in your life. “You may be playing a very passive role in the relationship in which you are unhappy rather than being more proactive in finding a productive, healthy way to deal with,” Los Angeles-based psychologist Dr. Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D., says. “You shouldn’t say this to your partner because it can decrease his or her self-esteem and can make him or her shut down, lash out, or both. Ironically, by saying this to your partner, you each may end up feeling even more unhappy and alienated.”

EXCERPT: “It can provide a mental and emotional respite and time-out from many of your responsibilities you have back home,” says Los-Angeles psychologist, Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D. “By having time off and getting away, you increase your odds to come back to your ‘regular’ life feeling better psychologically, as well as being more productive and energetic.”

Excerpt: “By asking a guy out, you show you are self-confident and assertive, both qualities that are generally seen as healthy and attractive. Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D. , is a Los Angeles-based psychologist, whose specialties include relationships. She shared with me, ‘For a guy to be asked out by a girl, he doesn’t have to wonder if she’s interested in him and his fear of rejection can be significantly decreased. As a result, he might feel more secure and comfortable in showing interest back to her and accepting her offer if he is interested in her. In addition, when a girl takes the initiative to ask a guy out, the girl is deliberately selecting someone that she knows she wants to go on a date with, rather than just being passive and hoping someone she likes will ask her out.’”
