In late January of 2023, the Showtime original reality docuseries Couples Therapy returned to television for its second installment. Given the show’s widespread popularity, it comes as no surprise that the series was renewed for Season 3.

At the helm of the show is licensed relationship therapist Dr. Orna Guralnik — who quickly became a fan-favorite following the series premiere.

Is Dr. Orna Guralnik from ‘Couples Therapy’ married? Here’s what we know.

If Orna has ever been married, divorced, partnered, or entangled, we wouldn’t know anything about it. In fact, she makes sure of it.

Although Dr. Orna’s job is all about taking a deep dive into the psyches of her clients, she keeps her own private life under wraps. And according to the clinical psychologist, there’s a reason for that.

Despite Couples Therapy producers' attempts to get her to open up, Dr. Orna said that maintaining her privacy is an important part of her practice.

"Of course, as documentary filmmakers, they wanted to know everything about me. My stance was, 'Look, this show is not about me. It’s about the work,'” the reality TV therapist told Refinery 29 in a 2019 interview. “If you include my personal life into it, you are misrepresenting the work.”

Orna added that her “personal story” would “contaminate the honest representation of the process of what therapy is really like,” ultimately doing her clients a major disservice. “I don’t want to do that to them. It’s a betrayal,” she added.

While little is known about Dr. Orna’s home life, every now and then, she’ll mention her children. Dr. Orna has two kids, a son named Jasper and a daughter named Ruby.

Catch Dr. Orna on new episodes of Couples Therapy at 8:00 p.m. EST on Showtime.
