I know I need to use implicit differentiation.... but I can't seem to solve for y' when y = ln(x^2 + y^2) Please help me, I'd really appreciate it!

One method you can use is to first get rid of the logarithm: This is somewhat easier to differentiate, but the original way works too: To solve for we need to multiply the denominator over first:
Thanks so much, this helped a lot.
