  • Gottman Method Couples Therapy

    Dr. John Gottman & Dr. Julie-Schwartz-Gottman received the Psychotherapy Networker Lifetime Achievement Award 2021 for their award-winning Gottman Method Couples Therapy and their extraordinary lifetime contribution to the scientific research in psychotherapy, The Love Lab, and the revolutionary practice of couples therapy.


    The Gottman Connect Relationship Checkup Questionnaire is a research-based assessment consisting of forty years of relationship research on over 150,000 couples providing essential behaviors leading to failure or success. It produces detailed individualized summary reports that provide recommendations regarding connection, friendship, intimacy, communication, parenting, trust, and conflict.

    The Gottman Connect Relationship Checkup

    The questionnaire is HIPAA compliant, consisting of 337 questions about friendship, intimacy, emotions, conflict, values, and trust. It covers a wide range of relationship areas, including communication, family, sexuality, betrayals, parenting, and finances. Each individual has privacy and confidentiality in completing the online questionnaire and providing their notes, making it possible to be authentic in addressing the relationship’s concerns and problems.

    Couples Invitation

    The therapist will email an invitation to the couple to complete the questionnaire individually. Each partner will create an account with a unique login and password to establish a personal profile for completing the questionnaire. Each individual has complete confidentiality and cannot access the partner’s information.

    The summary report offers treatment goals and plans with the couple’s strengths and challenges and specific interventions to target problem areas to support couples in starting their journey to a meaningful and satisfying relationship.
