Invite Your First Couple Free!


Developed from over 50 years of scientific research by Dr. John Gottman, this data-driven relationship assessment tool relies on intensive, detailed, and evidence-based information on why relationships succeed or fail.


Fully HIPAA compliant, the questionnaire consists of 337 questions about friendship, intimacy, emotions, conflict, values, and trust, as well as parenting, housework, finances, individual areas of concern, and more.

Get Started In Four Simple Steps

Sign up with Gottman Connect

The Gottman Relationship Checkup is now available to all clinical professionals working with couples! Getting started is as easy as applying to become an approved Gottman Connect provider via a simple, free registration process. While training in the Gottman Method is highly recommended, it is not required - additional tutorials and resources are be available upon account approval.

Invite your couples

Once approved, the next step is to invite your couples to complete the Gottman questionnaire. The process is simple - start by entering two separate emails, one for each partner, with their respective names.

Next, decide who will pay the $39.00 fee per couple: you can choose to pay yourself and incorporate it into your pricing structure, or defer to them to pay via the portal directly. Each partner will receive their own personal invitation via email to complete their profile. This profile will be associated with their individual responses to the questionnaire, and will be only be accessible by that individual. To ensure privacy, we request that you advise the couple not to share any login information with each other.

Complete the questionnaire

Fully HIPAA compliant, the questionnaire consists of 337 questions about friendship, intimacy, emotions, conflict, values, and trust. It includes questions about parenting, housework, finances, and individual areas of concern.

Each partner completes the online questionnaire independently and you receive the results, recommendations, and reports as soon as they have both submitted their responses.

Review detailed results

You will be notified as soon as both partners have submitted their questionnaires. From your dashboard you will be able to view and download detailed reports that include responses, areas of concern in the relationship, and suggested treatment options. This will prepare you to develop a personalized treatment plan that precisely focuses on the unique needs of each couple. The system includes a detailed report you can provide your couples to help them understand their strengths and challenges and begin their journey to a stronger relationship.

I’ve seen a lot of innovation over the past 40 years...but this is honestly a revolutionary marriage between the heart and science of couples’ therapy!

I really appreciate being able to see the details of each partner’s questionnaires and the ability to see their answers. The site also offers recommendations about what interventions to use with the couple, which will be very helpful for therapists of all levels of experience.

I just received my first Relationship Checkup result today and I think you’ll be happy to hear that it definitely exceeds my expectations, with regard to clarity, accuracy, depth, and detail.

My clients had a great experience using the Relationship Checkup and found it very user-friendly. In addition, the automatic scoring and personalized feedback reports are a great time saver. I will never hand score an assessment again.

Clinician, Seattle

This time-saving resource offers a clear and easily presentable description of each partner's current experience of the relationship, and it also points the way for me as a therapist to tailor an effective course of therapy that is best suited for each particular couple.

Jonathan Shippey, M.A., LMFT
Clinician, Louisville

The Enhanced Relationship Checkup and The Love Lab together give me a unique and in-depth look into not only how couples think and feel about their relationship, but also what their emotional experience is as they interact. This understanding helps me pinpoint exact areas of a couple's strength or challenge better than was ever possible. It is invaluable in my work with couples.

Julie Sharon-Wagschal, M.A., LMHC
Psychologist, Amsterdam

The Builder has been a great resource and the perfect tool. As an example, I have an older couple who are down to sessions every 4 to 6 weeks. At this point, they are in maintenance mode. The Builder gives them something to take hold of and use themselves. They use the Builder in different ways to deepen what they learned when we were meeting for weekly sessions. Sometimes, they use it for date nights and bonding time. They love it. It’s been great! Makes my job a lot easier.

Terri Ammirati, M.A., LCPC
Clinician, Illinois

I recommend the Builder and am confident in the work assignments. One client is so enthusiastic that they went ahead of the Repair Work assignment. They came to the session with language and a process-building in their relationship. Another couple received the assignment to do the Stress-Reducing Conversation, and they progressed using a Rituals of Connection conversation. I created a goal assignment to move between the two seamlessly. Looking forward to seeing how the conversation progresses!
