The Family and Marriage Counseling (FMC)
Directory was started in September, 2003. The project was
initiated by Chris
Hartwell, MSW, a web designer, and at the time, a student of Social Work at
The Family and Marriage Counseling Directory is
a multi-disciplinary state by state directory designed so that
individuals can easily find members of the helping professions in
their area through the major search engines.
One of my reasons for going in to Social Work was to help
people lead healthier and happier lives. Being a website designer, affords me a unique opportunity to make society's resources
more available to the people who need them.
The search engines today are better than they ever have been,
but many websites designed for professionals and organizations in
the field are done so without the knowledge of how to get properly
indexed and found for their keywords.
The FMC Directory was designed specifically to
make these resources more accessible. I wanted a site that would show up near
the top of results when someone typed 'family counseling' or
'marriage counseling' into Google.
All of the initial counselors in
the directory were included for free so that people would have
resources for their area. As the directory gains in popularity,
more and more counselors have asked to be included, and we now do
so for a small fee.
I heard a good description of the internet years back when
someone told me, 'the internet is like a giant library with all of
it's books thrown on the floor.' The goal of the FMC Directory
is to have those books indexed a little better so people can get
the help that they need.
