Who is Orna Guralnik?

Dr. Orna Guralnik is a psychoanalyst and clinical psychologist from Israel, who is seen working with couples on Couples’ Therapy.

Based in New York City, she is on faculty at NYU PostDoctoral Institute for Psychoanalysis and at NIP (National Institute for the Psychotherapies).

This is where she teaches courses on the trans-generational transmission of trauma, socio-politics/ideology and psychoanalysis, and on dissociation.

Orna wanted to have a career in the film industry, having gone to Tel Aviv University, but got a Ph.D. at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine instead.

Orna Guralnik: Family

Orna is a mother-of-two to son Jasper and daughter Ruby.

According to her Facebook page, she is also an auntie to nephew Lael.

She may often guide couples through their relationships, which has left people wondering if she is married, but it looks like she is single.

It is possible that she may keep her relationship private, as therapists are usually expected to keep their personal lives separate from sessions.

The trauma psychoanalyst is also a dog mom to Nico, an Alaskan Klee Kai.
