"Our goal is to discover where the problem is coming from in the brain and then find compensatory measures to treat it," says Donna J. Andrews, PhD, director of the Andrews-Reiter Epilepsy Research Program in Santa Rosa, California.
According to her research, emotional overload triggered 65 percent of the seizures she studied.Andrews therefore uses counseling and relaxation techniques to help her patients recognize early signs of seizures (called auras) and change their behavior to modify the outcome.

The Story of Trevor Park – Using the Andrews-Reiter Approach, 26 Aug 2011 [cached]
Then my parents heard of someone who took a different approach to treating epilepsy: Dr. Donna Andrews, a psychologist in California.
Dr. Andrews' personal story touched me. As a kid, she had suffered from seizures and was told at the age of 18 that she would never resolve the massive misfirings in her brain, that she would have those seizures forever. Andrews couldn't help but wonder: if her brain were so messed up, as her doctors claimed, then why wasn't she having seizures all the time? What was the difference between the times she was healthy and the times she was having a seizure? She figured there must be a trigger, something that sparks the seizures to erupt.
Today she has been seizure-free for over 40 years-and with no medication.
The question, then, was who would you listen to: someone who had never had seizures and offers you drugs in the hope that you'll stop convulsing or someone who has been through this illness, who knows exactly what you are going through and has actually overcome her problem?
I flew out to Santa Rosa, California, to meet with Dr. Andrews. That meeting changed my life.
Donna shifted my perspective on everything. She encouraged me to do my homework, to study epilepsy and its treatments. She said never put something into your body if you don't know what it is. And she said first and foremost that epilepsy was my problem, and getting healthy was my responsibility. I had to figure out my body. And I had to find my triggers.
Dr. Andrews had me asking myself new questions: what was I doing when I had these seizures?
Since meeting Dr. Andrews 15 months ago, I have had three seizures.
