In brief: Therapy

This person needs therapy, and culturally appropriate and language appropriate therapy.
Gestures like the ones she is proposing may be helpful for her, but what she underwent can cause lifetime psychologic scarring. She needs extensive psychotherapy to make sure she is ok now and in the future.

In brief: Get to a counselor

Limited english or where you were born are irrelevant.
This is a big deal and burning clothing won't turn the memory to ashes. Time to sit down with an experienced therapist and get the trauma behind before it turns into a chronic issue.
