Our expert says:
yes, it sounds as though she is in a stressful situation and not coping well so far, with features suggesting an anxiety disorder and perhaps a depression too. She would really benefit from seeing a psychologist for assessment and assistance, such as CBT counselling / therapy. Maybe the person she saw before was not only gay-unfriendly, but perhaps chosen by her family to "cure" her of being gay ? If so, no wonder she didn't find it helpful.
I don't know where you are based, but it wwould be adviseable to seek a gay-friendly therapist - that doesn't mean a gay therapist, but just one who is not prejudiced and grinding their own axe !
Indeed seeing a psychologist together for at least some of the sessions would also be useful.
Are there any gay organizations where you are, or within reach of you, who might be able to help you find such a therapist, and offer further support ?
And as m says, she should have a physical checkup to ensure none of her symptoms are related to a physical disorder needing attention
