This may sound crazy, but I have a really great instructor who added a little gimmick to my pre-shot routine. Basically, after I picture the shot from behind the ball, and as I approach the ball, I "pass through" a spot about two feet behind the ball. At that spot, all thought ceases...no swing thoughts, no care for anyone else around, nothing. It's amazing how this really works with a little work. If you make an effort to do it, it works. I guess I never thought about it before, and I've been playing a long, long time. I shot one of my best tournament rounds the weekend after I added it. Maybe just having that point beyond which there is no thought, frees you up. Maybe a little more than you wanted, but I hope she works on it and does well. My daughter is also a freshman in high school and playing this week. She's working on the same thing. Good luck.
