Welcome! I’m Dr. Kathleen Smith, and this is my weekly therapy newsletter, The Anxious Overachiever.

Do you ever wish your therapist would let you know what they were really thinking? Or do you wish they would give you more concrete homework? My newsletter does just that!

It’s a resource for busy, burned out humans who want to build better relationships.

The newsletter covers topics like:

  • How to stop overfunctioning for others.

  • How to interrupt anxious relationship patterns.

  • How to build relationships that feel less superficial.

Free subscribers receive two emails a month where I share accessible strategies for working on yourself, your relationships, and the anxiety of being a human in the world.

Paid subscribers receive weekly emails, a monthly Q&A, worksheets I’ve created, and more.

Here are a few of my most popular newsletters:

If you like my work, I’d encourage you to check out my books.

You are always welcome to email your thoughts and questions. Enjoy!
