"Kindness, empathy, presence, and an ability to make everyone she comes in contact with feel empowered". 

Nathalie's mission is to change the conversation about living well,

aging well, and dying well to help bring more clarity, focus, perspective

and empathy into our culture. She believes that each of us has the right to know about options and possibilities as we age. 

Comprehensive advance care Planning,

Resources and Coaching

Nathalie was born and grew up in the suburbs of Paris, France. She was a shy, bookish child who later attended the University of Sciences of Montpellier. After earning her Ph.D. in Biology and Health, she moved to the United States to pursue a career in biomedical research.


After a successful 25-year scientific career that took her through prestigious institutions such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Yale Medical School, and the biotech industry, Nathalie outgrew her corporate suit, became aware of her purpose and started her own enterprise as a women's health and end-of-life advocate. She now provides individualized education and coaching, advocating for personal choices and autonomy.  She is highly trained, and holds numerous certifications. 

She has 30 years of experience working collaboratively and building professional relationships in higher education and in the business world. 

Nathalie also works with women over 40 who are going through the Menopause transition. For more details go to:

Focusing on your own values, she'll give you the tools and courage to embrace your fears of change, find peace within, achieve inner freedom so you can create new choices for yourself. 

Far from being a narrowly trained specialist, Dr. Bonafé prides herself on being a generalist – the glue that brings and holds all of the
support systems together for her clients.
