Yvonne Thomas Ph.D., A Therapist in Los Angeles, Quoted In “Male Engagement Rings: Would Your Guy Wear One?” on marthastewartweddings.com (05/03/2018)

Excerpt: You don’t have to propose to discuss the idea of your guy wearing an engagement ring, though. When you’re ready for that chat, Los Angeles-based psychologist Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D., says to approach the topic with honesty and reasoning. “If you would feel more emotionally safe and secure that he is wearing an engagement ring, too, let him know these reasons and why him also wearing an engagement ring would provide comfort and assurance for you,” she explains. “If you want him to also wear an engagement ring while engaged because you would feel good to have him wear something that represent his deep love for you and commitment to the relationship, discuss this with him. The bottom line is if a man wears an engagement ring, whether by his inclination or his fiancée’s, it needs to be a healthy decision because he wants to and feels good about doing this.” Yvonne Thomas Ph.D.,Read More

Dr. Yvonne Thomas, A Licensed Psychologist In Los Angeles, Interviewed For “What’s The Meaning Of Love? Mental Health Pros Weigh In” on Thriveworks.com (02/26/2018)

EXCERPT: “Protect, Cherish, Respect. Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D., a Los Angeles-based psychologist who specializes in relationships, says the words “protect,” “cherish,” and “respect,” accurately define the meaning of love. She explains how below: Protect: When someone really loves another person, there is an almost reflexive instinct to want to protect him or her from any physical or emotional harm or distress. In essence, there is a natural desire to protect that loved one’s best interest and well-being. Cherish: Love for another conveys something beyond just caring about or liking that person. It means having deep, warm, substantive feelings about someone who is treasured. Respect: Having respect for a person is integral in having love for him or her. Respecting a person can be shown through actions including honesty and transparency, equality, compromise, loyalty, and fairness.” Some of Dr. Yvonne Thomas’s specialties include marriage counselling &  couples therapy in Los Angeles.  To read the article “What’s the meaning of love?Read 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
