Couples Therapy offers a voyeuristic look into the efforts of couples dealing with personal issues and trying to rebuild their relationships into something that will last for the long term. Ironically, most of the cast members are past and current reality stars whose relationships were negatively impacted by the pressures brought on by the expectations of the entertainment industry and the stress of being in the public limelight.

Overall, Couples Therapy deals with mature topics, some of which may upset sensitive viewers. Meanwhile, while Berman appears to legitimately want to help these couples, the series is as much about her and her therapeutic practices as it is about the couples she's trying to help. Some folks may find this show an entertaining form of guilty pleasure, but it's not meant for kids.
