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 crises involving identity, meaning, and/or spirituality, 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 18 years’ experience providing therapeutic services in numerous settings (including community mental health, hospitals, college counseling centers, and corrections) in 4 states; he joined the Samaritan counseling staff in 2016. Andrew’s therapeutic approach invites clients to live reflectively and creatively in relation to their experience and responsibly in accordance with their values and with life’s paradoxes. Welcoming diversity and valuing inclusivity in his practice, he employs mindfulness- and acceptance-based, narrative, expressive, and systemic interventions with emphasis given to meaning-making and optimal functioning grounded in the intersection of multiple developmental, interpersonal, cultural, ecological, and spiritual contexts. In addition to his counseling work at Samaritan, Andrew is an associate professor of psychology at Millersville University.
