About the Practice

In 2015, Lake Murray Presbyterian Church identified a need for accessible counseling in the Chapin community. After much thought and prayer, the Lake Murray Presbyterian Church Counseling Center was founded. It is the hope that this ministry will serve the community of Chapin to provide quality psychotherapy to anyone who desires help navigating life’s challenges. LMPCCC services are available regardless of a client’s religious affiliation, socio-economic level, race, or nationality. It is supported by client fees and individual donations.  A sliding scale is available for clients who lack necessary funds.

About Zeta Hastings, LISW-CP

Zeta Hastings

Social work is often called a “helping” profession. I was always drawn to listening and helping people solve problems. To me, that is what counseling is really all about- helping clients to navigate struggles or difficult times to find a better result. I believe in meeting people where they are, identifying strengths, and finding solutions to build a better self. I also believe that using art and play are important in counseling.

I have been a social worker for over 10 years and have worked in a variety of settings. I have worked with individuals, families, adults, and children. I am currently a Licensed Independent Social Worker in Independent Practice, as well as an approved supervisor for other social workers seeking licensure. I have experience working with mental illness, trauma and violence, adolescent behavioral issues, educational concerns, and family dynamics. I worked for 5 years at the SC Department of Juvenile Justice and am currently a school social worker.

My approach to counseling is eclectic. I primarily use a strengths based theory, but I also pull from Virginia Satir, Strengths Based Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral.
