Happiness Expert/Relationship Expert

Natasha Sharma is a therapist, speaker, TV/media spokesperson, and doctoral student. She is also the author of The Kindness Journal, a guided, interactive daily journal that is the most powerful way to cultivate a more positive outlook and happier life.

In 2007, Natasha walked away from her 6-figure salary job that "a million girls would kill for" - traveling first class around the world working out of London in marketing for a fashion and cosmetics company - and went back to graduate school to study psychology. Since then, Natasha has been devoted to inspiring and helping others to learn how to be happy, and live their most fulfilling lives. She achieved her Masters degree in psychology from The Johns Hopkins University, and is currently completing her Doctorate degree in psychology. In 2012, Natasha founded the clinic NKS Therapy in Toronto. She has worked with thousands of individuals, couples, and families in the areas of anxiety, depression, relationships and marriage, anger management, self-esteem issues, ADHD, learning disorders, and cross cultural issues. She has completed over 400 comprehensive assessments. She is clinically supervised by Dr. Jon Mills, Registered Psychologist, of Mills Psychology.

As an Expert in the areas of Happiness, Relationships, and Parenting, Natasha writes for a number of publications such as Thrive Global, YummyMummyClub.ca, InsideToronto.com, and TheBabySpot.ca. She has also appeared on some of Canada’s most popular TV shows including Global News Toronto, The Morning Show, Breakfast Television Toronto, Entertainment Tonight, Etalk, and Rogers TV. In addition, her relationship tips and mental health advice have been featured in The Globe and Mail, Toronto Star, Huffington Post, and Elle Canada. Natasha’s undergraduate institution McMaster University has profiled her as a notable alumnus, and she is a regular contributor to The DeGroote School of Business "Knowledge Magazine."

Natasha has been speaking professionally across Canada, the United States, and Europe for over 10 years. She is frequently invited to speak at academic, corporate, and private events including Harvard University, The University of Maryland, and McMaster University’s DeGroote School of Business. She regularly speaks at local events and conferences, and collaborates with organizations to deliver workshops to individuals around the world. Her personal decision to have made a risky, anxiety-inducing, and significant shift in her own career has made her especially passionate about helping people achieve success and happiness in their own careers, and in acquiring the tools they need to navigate and master the impending disruption to the future of 'work' as we know it."

A born performer, Natasha is also an accomplished singer and pianist. She was a finalist to play the lead role on Broadway in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s NYC production of Bombay Dreams in 2004, and is also trained in classical piano to the “ARCT Performance” level.
