Psychologist in Los Angeles, Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D. Interviewed For “How To Talk About Therapy In The Workplace” on theladders.com (05/24/2018)

Feel how I did? In honor of National Mental Health Awareness month, take the advice of Los Angeles-based psychologist Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D., on how to bring up this all-too-important discussion with your higher-ups: Everyone’s reasons for needing therapy are different: while I sought a way of improving my outlook toward my family and love life, others might derive stress from body image or their toxic friend group. Whatever the cause, improving your mental state inevitably will change how you approach your job. That’s why Dr. Thomas suggests detailing these facts to your boss, as a way of illustrating how beneficial the experience will be holistically. “It is important to specify how you will be a better employee and a better colleague: such as that you will be more alert and energetic, have better concentration and focus, be more productive and motivated on the job, be an easier person for coworkers to getRead More

Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D., A Psychologist In Los Angeles, Quoted In “How To Spot If You’re In A Toxic Friendship” on Yahoo.com (04/19/2018)

EXCERPT: Your friend is toxic if they can’t be happy for you. Did you finally manage to run a mile without stopping? That’s cause for a “Yay!” bitmoji. Did that amazing first date ask you out for a second date? Time for a glass of something strong to celebrate. Although every type of relationship fosters some sort of competitive spirit that keeps you playful, if your friends can’t muster up excitement over both the little and big moments in your life, psychologist Dr. Yvonne Thomas, PhD, says they likely don’t have your best interest at heart. “One indicator that your friend is toxic is that when things are going well for you, he or she can rarely be happy about it. Whether something good happens to you or you have achieved positive results due to your own efforts, a toxic friend may have a negative reaction — by being jealous, resentful, critical,Read More

Los Angeles Psychologist Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D. Quoted In “Turn A Bad Day Around” on parenting.com (02/05/2018)

Excerpt: Not feeling like Mary Poppins today? Whether you work or stay at home, you’re bound to have days alone with your baby that start off bad and quickly get worse….Have a pajama day Hanging out in your jammies isn’t just comfortable, it’s a great opportunity to connect with your inner child, says Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D., an L.A.-based psychologist. Increase your water intake Dehydration can cause headache and exhaustion, leaving you feeling even more tired than you already are. Aim to drink about eight 8-ounce glasses of water per day…Share bad-mama moments “Being able to talk about your not-so-stellar moments as a mom will help you realize you’re not alone, you’re not the worst mother in the world, and your child is not the most incorrigible,” says Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D., a Los Angeles-based psychologist. Venting to a supportive friend or online chat buddies will help you remember there are no perfect parents or babies.Read More

Excerpt: “From my experience, I have found that people have often been raised to not confide or share feelings which may indicate they are upset or may not doing so well,” said Los Angeles-based psychologist Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D. “Unfortunately, people may still have the misconception that if they share the truth about not feeling or doing okay in their lives that others may see them as weak or flawed.” The article can be found on Ravishly.com, and was written by Claire Gillespie.  Dr. Yvonne Thomas is an expert in cognitive behavioral therapy in Los Angeles.  She has worked with a countless diverse set of clients in helping overcome anxiety and depression.  To find out more, please visit her site, her other articles, or make a request for an appointment. Read More
