I've checked the page for WordFence Security on WordPress.org and there seem to be some issues with it. I'm not saying this is the problem, but perhaps you need to deactivate Duplicator and WordFence plugins and test to see if this resolves the issue.
This is unusual, so it must be something unique. If deactivating the plugins doesn't work, we may need to reinstall WordPress.

Thanks Rob. Disabling the plugins didn't do it. Do you have a suggested method for reinstalling wordpress?

Download a fresh copy directly from WordPress.org.
Unzip the folder placing the wordpress folder on your desktop.
FTP into your site.
Delete the wp-admin and wp-includes folders.
Navigate the local level of your FTP client to the wordpress folder on the desktop.
It contains wp-admin and wp-includes folders. Upload those, one at a time.
Then, the individual files that are in the desktop wordpress folder can be uploaded as a group. When asked by the FTP client if you want to overwrite, say Yes to All.
Login to WordPress, again and see if it works.

I followed your instructions. I replaced everything except for the wp-config file and the wp-content folder. The site still does not show the toolbar.
wait. i think i might know what's wrong. I have wordpress installed in a separate directory from the root. Maybe I made an error setting that up...

figured it out. In Settings - General I added "www." to the WordPress Address (URL).

Ah excellent, glad you got it sorted. I was just gonna say also check in users>your profile to make sure you hadn't unchecked the 'view toolbar' by accident.
