She’ll have to move out and not rely on her parents for anything. 

She’ll likely be able to spend time with her brother later. I don’t know how old he is, but if he’s old enough to have his own phone, she can call and FaceTime him. As for her father, it’s unfortunate, but it’s his loss. He’s a grown man; if he doesn’t talk to his own daughter because of this, it’s his choice. He’ll have to suffer the consequences.

Tell her that she has to look ahead, not backward. Her family will make their choices, and she’ll have to let them. She has a life to live. She can’t let them stop her. There’s a good chance they’ll come around anyway. 

Also, she won’t be ruining the relationship with her mother if it does actually get ruined. That would be her mother’s doing. Her mom is wrong.
