Dr. Julian Dayton


Postdoctoral Fellow

Relationship & Trauma Specialist

Dr. Dayton is dedicated to guiding individuals through some of life’s most difficult struggles towards profound recovery and growth. He has extensive experience working with couples, healing trauma, treating compulsive sexual behaviors and OCD, as well as other anxiety and depressive conditions.


A collaborative approach is an essential component to Dr. Dayton’s work. He supports clients in uncovering underlying patterns and unresolved conflicts, enabling them to gain deeper insight and make impactful changes. By addressing relationship dynamics and attachment styles, he helps clients develop healthier ways of relating to themselves and others. Drawing from his in-depth knowledge of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), attachment theory, EMDR, humanistic principles, and Gottman Method Couples Therapy, he crafts personalized therapeutic experiences tailored to the unique needs of each client.


Couples Therapy

Dr. Dayton is passionate about working with couples to help them communicate more effectively, strengthen their friendship, and guide them towards a deeper connection that fosters intimacy and companionship. He supports couples struggling with sexual concerns to have open, safe discussions around intimacy and provides ways to enhance their sexual closeness. He also provides discernment counseling to couples at a crossroads and needing guidance on how to move forward. With compassion and expertise, he supports couples in rebuilding their relationship on a foundation of honesty, understanding, and mutual regard, empowering them to move forward with renewed commitment and resilience.


Dr. Dayton also offers specialized care to couples navigating the aftermath of infidelity or sex addiction. Together, he helps couples explore the pain of betrayal and process the vulnerabilities that arise in the wake of infidelity, fostering a deeper understanding of what occurred. He believes empathy is a powerful healing tool to repair the painful rupture of trust, and understands that trust is built with consistent actions over time. Dr. Dayton helps couples communicate more effectively, repair relational wounds, and rebuild what was lost. With a focus on emotional connection and healing, he helps couples move beyond the devastation of infidelity to create a stronger, more resilient bond that honors their shared values and aspirations.


In his work with couples, Dr. Dayton seamlessly integrates attachment-based techniques, psychodynamic, and Gottman Method Couples Therapy insights into the intricacies of the relationship, empowering couples to navigate challenges and strengthen their emotional bonds. His extensive knowledge of relational dynamics fosters meaningful connections and transformational growth for his clients.


Therapy for Trauma, Anxiety & Depression

With a deep understanding of the impact of trauma and anxiety on one's well-being, Dr. Dayton creates a safe and nurturing environment where clients can explore their experiences and emotions without judgment. Utilizing EMDR, a highly effective and evidence-based therapy technique, Dr. Dayton helps clients process and integrate traumatic memories, allowing them to find relief from distressing symptoms and regain a sense of empowerment and control in their lives. In addition to trauma therapy, Dr. Dayton also specializes in treating a range of mental health conditions, including anxiety and depressive disorders. By employing a holistic and client-centered approach, Dr. Dayton collaborates with individuals to identify underlying issues, develop coping strategies, and cultivate resilience in the face of adversity.

Dr. Dayton offers a supportive and nonjudgmental space for individuals struggling with compulsive sexual behaviors to explore their challenges and find healing. Using a holistic approach that integrates evidence-based techniques, Dr. Dayton empowers clients to understand the underlying factors driving their behaviors and helps them to develop healthier coping strategies. With Dr. Dayton's guidance, clients can break free from the cycle of compulsive behavior, reclaim their sense of control, and cultivate fulfilling and balanced lives.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

Part of Dr. Dayton’s clinical practice is treating Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), through Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy to help individuals reclaim control over their lives. ERP is a highly effective, evidence-based approach that empowers clients to confront their fears and obsessions in a supportive and structured environment. He helps clients work through their uncomfortable beliefs and develop the skills necessary to manage and reduce their anxiety symptoms, while empowering them to live fulfilling lives free from the constraints of OCD.
