*hugs* It sounds like there's been a lot of stress in her life lately - and fear motivated behavior is the hardest kind to break. Don't beat yourself up over this, it sounds like you're doing everything you can. My only real suggestion is to try to minimize the changes in her routines. Instead of a crate, is it possible for her to have a larger confined area, say a bathroom or extra bedroom? Maybe one of those large doggie play-pen enclosures? She's coping with so many changes right now - that might be why she's regressing with the crate.

I think that if you keep doing what you're doing, stick to the positive reinforcement and keep the training up (give her something to do other than worry!) she'll eventually start to move forward again. In the mean time, cut yourself some slack, ok?
