My name is Bruce Hatch. I am the owner of Tree of Life Counseling Services located at 2020 North Academy Blvd. Ste 280 in Colorado Springs, CO 80909.
I provide Outpatient Therapeutic services.
I have been working in this field since approximately 1986. At that time I was still in undergraduate school at the University of Utah where I began an internship with Salt Lake County Youth Services as as a youth counselor. In 1992, my family moved to Denver, Colorado and I have been gaining experience in many areas of the social services field eventually landing here at my private practice. Through my many years of dedication to working with each family and/or client’s needs, I have found that there are similar issues and needs that initiate children, teens and families into their current emotional driven distress. This can be healed and worked through with many different approaches specific to each individual and family’s beliefs, values and culture and comfort. I am committed to each client with every need and will consider it an honor and privilege to walk with you in a journey of healing and support.
I specialize in therapeutic services needs related to PTSD, anxiety, anger and depression utilizing in somatic, neurofeedback and brain-based trauma processing tools.
