Andrew Bland, Psychologist

Andrew Bland, PhD

Licensed Psychologist

Andrew is a licensed psychologist. Welcoming diversity and valuing inclusivity in his practice, he provides therapeutic services to adults whose concerns include anxiety, mood/motivation, trauma, interpersonal relationships, work-life balance, issues involving identity, purpose, and/or spirituality, and other matters. He also works with couples and families.

Andrew believes that meaning can be created out of even the most difficult circumstances. His collaborative therapeutic approach invites people to live more presently, to attune to their embodied experience, to become more comfortable sitting with uncertainty, to appreciate the multiple contextual factors at play in their concerns, and to become more attuned to their values—and, with that, more safe and empowered as well as more intentional and authentic.

Andrew earned a master’s degree from the University of West Georgia’s humanistic psychology program and a Ph.D. in counseling psychology from Indiana State University. For 19 years, he has provided therapeutic services in numerous settings (including community mental health, hospitals, college counseling centers, and corrections) in four states; he joined the Samaritan Counseling Center staff in 2016. In addition to his counseling work at Samaritan, Andrew teaches psychology and trains psychotherapists at Millersville University.
