Megan Freeman, MFT 2015I am working at Philhaven in Lancaster County. I am a family-based therapist, in which I provide intensive outpatient therapy to children and their families. Every day I continue to learn more and more, which is one of the reasons I love this line of work, but one of the biggest things I've learned is how influential and substantial my time at Jefferson has been. Jeff has given me such a strong foundation from which to grow. I couldn't have asked for more out of my experience. I am so proud of this diploma and I would advocate for this program any day of the week!
