Mississippi Stories: Alyssa Killebrew, Part Two

In this episode of Mississippi Stories, Mississippi Today Editor-at-Large Marshall Ramsey welcomes Dr. Alyssa Killebrew to the start of 2023 and talks about resolutions, being more resilient in the new year and how we can focus on and improve our mental health in 2023.

Dr. Killebrew knows about flexibility. In December 2021, Dr. Killebrew’s longtime husband Keath, a successful farmer, dies in a plane crash in South America. This came after the couple lost their unborn child to COVID-19. Her amazing strength and positive outlook will inspire you. She talks about her and Keith setting up a camp called SEK Intensives to honor their youngest daughter and help both teens and their parents deal with life’s challenges.

Dr. Killebrew is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist (#54-946), Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor. In 2005, she received her Master of Education (M.Ed.) degree in Community Counseling from Delta State University. In 2008, she received her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Jackson State University and completed her residency at Valley Mental Health in Salt Lake City, Utah. She completed a postdoctoral year in the Mississippi Department of Corrections, where she was Director of Mental Health for the Young Offenders Unit.

She started her own Ridgeland, Mississippi, Killebrew Psychological Services, LLC, business in 2016, focusing her services primarily on mood disorders, PTSD, addiction, and personality disorders. She specializes in biofeedback, cognitive behavioral therapy, prolonged exposure, and modified dialectical behavior therapy (DBT).
