Andrew Bland, PhD

Licensed Psychologist

Andrew is a licensed psychologist. He provides therapeutic services to adults whose concerns include anxiety/mood, trauma, interpersonal relationships, work-life balance, and existential issues, among other matters. He also works with couples and families. Andrew earned a master’s degree from the University of West Georgia’s humanistic-existential-transpersonal psychology program (2003) and a Ph.D. in counseling psychology from Indiana State University (2013). He has over 15 years’ experience providing therapeutic services in numerous settings (including community mental health, hospitals, college counseling centers, and corrections) in four states; he joined the Samaritan counseling staff in 2016. Andrew’s therapeutic approach encourages clients to live reflectively, creatively, and expressively in relation to their experience and responsibly in accordance with their values. Welcoming diversity and valuing inclusivity in his practice, he employs mindfulness- and acceptance-based, narrative, and systemic interventions with emphasis given to meaning-making and optimal functioning grounded in the intersection of multiple developmental, interpersonal, cultural, ecological, and psycho-spiritual contexts. In addition to his counseling work at Samaritan, Andrew is an associate professor of psychology at Millersville University.
