About Bonnie Duarte

Registered Social Service Worker, Professional Certified Coach

"I'm so glad you are reaching out and that you are starting your journey to heal"

As a Divorce Recovery Coach, I have dedicated my practice to individuals healing past their divorce grief. I'm a Registered Social Service Worker and Professional Certified Coach with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Services Worker (OCSWSSW), and I'm accredited through the International Coach Federation (ICF). I specialize in helping people healing past divorce grief and trauma. 

I began my Social Services career back in 2004 and I've been serving families, individuals, and groups ever since.  I've gained valuable experience working with high conflict families and youth, I worked for youth shelters and residential treatment homes and I led life skills programs in a woman's shelter for women and children at the affect of domestic violence.

I bring a unique set of tools to the table, as a Professional Certified Life Coach I do not offer talk therapy; but rather I teach my clients how to heal. Healing is a learned skill that few people have been taught and yet each of us will experience grief at one point in our lifetime. I help support people like you to move through divorce grief with confidence and peace. 

People that seek me out my support are deeply struggling with their marital separation; some are not ready to let go and others want to let go but it's harder than they ever could imagine. Many of my clients have faced adultery and abuse including narcissist partnerships. They have often taken a leave of absence from their work or are unable to focus on their required workload and feel they are falling behind. My clients often describe themselves as not being able to stop thinking about their ex or unable to concentrate and move forward, as they are bombarded with shame and many other overwhelming emotions. 

I have been in the face of divorce my whole life, so it is no surprise that I have chosen Divorce Healing as my passion and career. As a  child of 4-divorces (my parents married and divorced 4 separate people) and I myself am a step-parent of 13 years, I have seen time and time again where divorce has gone wrong. What I have learned professionally and first-hand is that if parents heal so will their children. Creating a new healthy family begins with you and this is great news because now this puts you back in the driver's seat of your family's success. 

I am also a workshop facilitator to Elementry School Parents “Building Resilient Families”,

“7 Essential Stress-Reducing Tools for your Teens”; And I lead regular divorce workshops on “Discovering Your Divorce Healing Blueprint”, “Core Values”, and “Eliminating Shame”. I have also written an electronic handbook, 30 Divorce Myths - That Stop You From Moving Forward.

I teach a step by step process that will help you achieve your personalized unique divorce healing goals. Supporting individuals like you to heal beyond divorce so that you can grow and be proud of the person that you have become.  I promise to help you through the emotional aspect of divorce, allowing you to be your best self during the separation and divorce process. I'm committed to emotional health, with easy to understand solutions that are achievable by everyone. 

Warm Regards,
