About Zeta Hastings, LISW-CP
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.
