OK, primarily you're describing significant discipline problems with the child. Hidings don't help, and simply teach her that its right to use physical force and hurt others, but only the strongest person gets to do that.

Teenage girls tend to enormously over-value their early crushes on boys, and over-dramatise their gigantic grief when they break up.
The yshcologist should be able, after assessing the children, to have a session or two with you to plan how you can learn to handle these situations and feel more confident about doing so.
