To quote the Resilience Research Institute, helping people navigate to and negotiate for psychological and physical resources to sustain their wellbeing and for those resources to be provided in culturally meaningful ways. Healing stories are described in her books -
      Bamboozled: Trek Guide for Clients & Experts in Medicine and In Balance: Workbook on Resilience & Wellbeing.
