Should "We strive to enable to become healthy and effective" be "We strive to be enable to become healthy and effective"?

Looks there is no need to write it as "to be enable," which is actually ungrammatical. "Strive to enable" mean "strive to make it possible", so it is correct. But I need you native speakers to confirm it.

"A[n] assumption of self-actualization theory is that it very strongly requires a pluralism of individual differences.... Such a true acceptance of individual differences has several key implications that should be stated briefly...it means that we try to make a rose into a good rose, rather than seek to change roses into lilies. It implies a kind of Taoism, an acceptance of what people really are; it necessitates a pleasure in the self-actualization of a person who may be quite different from yourself. It even implies an ultimate respect and acknowledgment of the sacredness and uniqueness of each kind of person.. In short, humanistic psychology involves an acceptance of people as they are at their intrinsic core and their regards therapists as simply Taoist helpers for them. We strive to enable to become healthy and effective in their own style."

"Enable" needs a subject. Enable who?

The quotation has another error in the penultimate sentence: ... and their regards therapists as simply Taoist helpers for them. The author may have intended thus.
