Navigating Life's Challenges

Welcome to Maps Counseling Services

Founded in 1973, Maps Counseling Services is committed to ensuring that effective counseling and psychotherapy services are available to everyone in the Monadnock Region, regardless of income or financial resources. Our therapists practice the professional integration of psychotherapy and spirituality, with the goal of helping each client find meaningful solutions to life’s problems.

Maps is the largest independent provider of outpatient psychotherapy services in the Monadnock Region, serving more than 1000 individuals or families each year in our Keene and Peterborough offices.

Maps is neither a religious or a pastoral agency, but our heritage is spiritual. Here at Maps we believe that a person’s unique spirituality is an important part of who they are, and how they approach problems they face. Maps considers spirituality to be a search for meaning and identity in life — the quest to understand who we are and what our lives mean on a deeper level. Maps therapists value every client’s unique spiritual beliefs and practices, and see these as important resources during the therapeutic process. For some, spirituality may be reflected in religious traditions, while for others it is expressed through song, meditation, dance, ethical convictions, or their connection to nature. Each person is unique, and at Maps we strive to find those beliefs that help our clients find comfort and guidance during difficult times.


About Our Clinical Services

With sixteen licensed psychotherapists and three Antioch University New England graduate students, Maps offers a broad range of services for clients of all ages. Maps services are divided into Adult Services and Child & Adolescent Services. We have specific programs within each service, such as our substance misuse service and our psychological testing service.

Our specialists work with children on the autism spectrum, people struggling with substance abuse, depression, chronic pain and trauma. We work with couples who want to repair or improve their marriage, and adults who are dealing with loss. We provide individual, family and group psychotherapy, depending on the problem at hand. We provide support groups for people with cancer and for their caregivers, and support groups for clients with chronic pain. If you are unhappy and your life is not working the way you want it to, Maps likely has a counselor for you.

Maps accepts most major health insurance plans as well as Medicaid and Medicare. Thanks to the generous support of the Monadnock United Way and private contributions, Maps offers the Hope and Healing Fund and our Clinical Training Program which provide low cost psychotherapy to those who do not have health insurance and cannot afford the standard fee.

Ethics Workshop: Behavioral Health and Medical Records Release Issues and the Law

Friday, May 31 (8:30am – 4:45pm) – $99 per person (register online)

Behavioral health records are the documentation of a patient’s condition, treatment, and progress throughout the therapeutic process…and form the foundation for legal protection. Inadequate records “benefit a patient’s claim in legal proceedings.” This workshop will delineate the information necessary to safeguard and safely manage patient records including the application to special populations. Of particular interest, Attorney Bedard will provide attendees with a clear, concise but comprehensive understanding of HIPAA and HITECH laws as they apply to ongoing mental health practice.

Our Presenter, Attorney Bedard, is the managing director of Ransmeier & Spellman pc of Concord, New Hampshire.  He is a New Hampshire native who represents large and small businesses, not-for-profit corporations, individuals and municipalities. Biron is a frequent presenter on legal issues in mental health, the release of medical records, and medical records confidentiality.
