Dr. Thomas Featured on Bustle.com “The 7 Biggest Mistakes People Make On First Dates, According To Experts” (05/01/2017)

relationship counseling los angeles, couples therapy los angelesEXCERPT: When I was single, I remember spending hours mentally preparing myself for first dates. I’d run through conversation topics to bring up if we reached an awkward silence. I’d memorize online dating profiles. But this didn’t safeguard me against first date mistakes. Apparently, some of the most common dating conventions end up setting us back.

The best way to avoid shooting yourself in the foot on a first date is to chill out beforehand, says psychologist Yvonne Thomas, PhD. I know: It’s easier said than done. Thomas recommends taking deep breaths and reminding yourself that nothing has to come out of this. You may not meet The One or even your next significant other on your next date (though you might), so just focus on having a fun night or pleasant afternoon.

Yvonne Thomas, los angeles based psychoterapistEXCERPT:  When your move involves a concrete change that you know will help you get closer to the life you want, you should see it as a positive thing. “Good reasons to consider a move to a new city include being accepted to a college program at a school you want to go to, getting the kind of job you have desired that you haven’t been able to get where you currently live, moving with your significant other or spouse if he or she has a school or job offer that is too good for your partner and for you as a couple to turn down,” says Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D., a Los Angeles-based psychologist whose specialties include life transitions and relationships. She also cites relocating for physical or emotional health-related reasons, being closer to family and/or friends who have moved to a new city, or feeling that you are more suited to live in a particular new city than where you are living now (if you’re living in the country, but are more of a “city person” or vice versa) as positive reasons to move.

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.
