About The Clean Divorce

With The Clean Divorce, I strive to create a safe space for you to gain compassionate advice, support, and deep understanding. I am passionately committed to helping others in their relationships with their families while guiding them to a place of self-empowerment.

Unresolved conflict can be costly to your emotional and physical health as well as your finances. The Clean Divorce focuses on conflict resolution and developing constructive, collaborative agreements that support healthy and productive relationships while being time and cost effective.

About Me

I’m Suzanne Winlove-Smith, an accredited Family Mediator, Relationship &  Divorce Coach.  I started The Clean Divorce when I came to realize how few resources were available to those going through relationship breakdown. When I was immersed in the experience of my own divorce, I saw how important it was to create a new way forward.

Working with couples in numerous court systems in Eastern Ontario equipped me with extensive skills in divorce support, counselling, and mediation. My experience with my own divorce gave me invaluable insight that has further inspired me to create simple and empowering solutions for individuals facing their own relationship challenges.  I am also the current President of the Ottawa Chapter of the OAFM

At The Clean Divorce, we revolutionize the divorce experience by offering compassionate mediation services that prioritize mutual understanding and fair outcomes. Our mission is to:  

  • Guide families through separation with integrity and empathy, fostering open communication and equitable solutions.  

  • Empower families to navigate divorce with clarity and dignity, ensuring respectful and fair resolutions for a brighter future. 


At The Clean Divorce, our vision is to:  

  • Transform divorce mediation into a healing and empowering process, where families emerge stronger and more resilient.  

  • Set a new standard for how society views and approaches divorce, seeing it not as an end but as a new beginning filled with possibilities.  

  • Create a supportive environment that helps families transition with grace and optimism, paving the way for happier and healthier futures.
