Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D., a Relationship Psychologist in Brentwood, Quoted In “How To Know If You’re Compatible With Your Future Mother-In-Law” on marthastewartweddings.com (01/15/2018)

Excerpt: In terms of relationships that will make-or-break your happiness level, you can pretty much guarantee on a few to prioritize. First and foremost, self-love and a healthy inner dialogue will help you tackle the many stages your life will present. Secondly (and if you're lucky enough), the partner you select to share your life with has a significant impact on your levels of daily joy and comfort. And while others are essential, too—your besties and your family—there's one that contributes to your happiness in married life. Your mother-in-law. Since she's the most significant female relationship your partner had before he met you, having at least an amicable union with his mom is recommended for a long, happy marriage.  Here, some ways to tell if you're compatible with your mother-in-law, along with some ways to improve your banter if you find yourself at a loss for words...Read More

Los Angeles Psychologist Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D. Interviewed For “How To Plan Spending Christmas With Loved Ones” on askmen.com (11/20/2017)

Excerpt:  “Unlike holidays of Christmas past, when you’re decking the halls with the love of your life, the experience feels more magical and romantic. It also comes with more responsibility — not only are you managing your own expectations and social calendar, but you’re also navigating the careful compromise of spending a hectic season with another person. The holiday season presents more opportunities to pause and express how grateful you are for the lucky lady in your life and cement your affection. Psychologists say Christmas can be a relationship game changer for many couples. “Celebrating holidays together is an important part of a relationship. It can help deepen the couple’s level of closeness and seriousness with each other,” explains Los Angeles-based psychologist, Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D. “By partaking in holidays together, the couple can share each other’s traditions and important events together, increasing the quality of their bond.” Here’s the bestRead More

Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D., A Los Angeles Psychologist, Quoted In “13 Relationship Tips” on Dolphnotes.com (10/23/2017)

Excerpt: “There’s a more effective way to air grievances than to file an angry complaint. Sandwich your negative comment between two positives. If you want to complain about how he’s always late, for example, try something like “You know, I love that you’re so laid-back and easygoing, but it really bothers me when you show up so late. I’m sure you can still be the fun guy I adore and be on time.” Said Los Angeles psychologist Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D.” Read the rest of what relationship therapist Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D., has to say on Dolphnote.com’s “13 Relationship Tips.” Thomas is a licensed relationship therapist in Los Angeles.Read More

“13 People Reveal What Makes Them Fall In Love All Over Again” on bustle.com (10/02/2017)

Excerpt:  A  lot of people think that falling in love is what it’s all about — but staying in love can be way trickier. But a lot of it comes down to focusing on the little things your partner does that still light you up. “Positive thinking can increase how much love you have for your partner for several reasons,” Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D., a Los Angeles based psychologist, tells Bustle. “First of all, if you are already thinking positively in general, you are much more likely to notice and appreciate those qualities in your partner that you love rather than take these characteristics for granted or overlook them. Also, if you typically tend to engage in positive thinking, you are likely to be a more open-hearted person in general, as well as towards your partner than someone who tends to be more of a negative or even neutral kind of thinker.” Read what Los Angeles psychologist YvonneRead More

MarthaStewartWeddings.com Interviews Dr. Thomas on “6 Things You Should Never Say to Your Partner, According to Psychologists” (06/26/2017)

Excerpt: “‘It’s your fault that I’m unhappy.’ 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.”   Click Here to Read the full list on MarthaStewartWeddings.com.  Read More

Dr. Thomas on “Why Girls Should Ask Guys Out on a Date” as seen on storia.me (06/12/2017)

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.’” Click here to read the full article on storia.me of “12Read More
