How often are you trying to feed her? If you keep trying day after day you will stress her out, it's best to leave her 3-4 days between attempts. It sounds so simple but with fussy feeders I find the best method is to place them into a small container, which you then cover to ensure it's nice and dark and just leave them somewhere quiet with the mouse (you can try braining too). This allows the snake to feel secure.
