I wonder what on earth the other psychologists did with her. If you'll read my response to the neighbouriong question, much the same advice applies here. She needs a clear clode of discipline and behaviour, with reards for behaving well ( and not lying or stealing ) and unwanted consequences for breaking the rules and for lying or stealing. NO excuses acceptable.
I also agree with Star about the importance of schedfuling proper mom-daughter time together, to chat abou all sorts of things, and to make it clear how much you love her. If she feels she doesn't get enough attention from you, then misbehaving usually works by bringing more attention. Hidings are pointless, but losing the use of cellphone or watching TV for a week is far more effective as a deterrant
And talk with her friends about how important it is for them NOT to feed her ANYTHING that isn't on her diet. See a good dietician to be sure she is on a healthy and filling diet to lose weight, and remember that some exercise is also essential as part of the plan.
