High stress, calming signal -- the dog is perceiving too much pressure -- discomfort , too close , to invasive of her personal space -- can flip to fear / avoidance / aggression.
can you get a youtube of your presence in the room and her going through the signaling . that way we can mark what you are doing with your body posture, movement , voice and so on . appears to be a very sensitive dog . can you describe her in her world at large , what "training" she has received , what she was like as a young pup if you had her from that time on.
to get her on board with her you will have to work on her terms , reduce your expectations , and reduce your body size - go down instead of towering over her , let HER come to you and allow her to move away . when she feels more in control of her situation she will be more comfortable . it will take a long time .
