Brief Answer:
Supportive care

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for asking

I read your question and i understand your concern. Gastritis is well put diagnosis for all her symptoms triggered by stress and excess of coffee intake as both these work as stimulants and induce gastric inflammation leading to gastritis. I would suggest take zantac as prescribed for at least a month. Modify diet and lifestyle. Avoid coffee, tea, cola, beverages, alcohol. beer , spices, processed canned products, chocolates, dairy products etc. Eat small frequent meals. Use yogurt with peppermint. Prefer natural diet fresh fruits and vegetables. Drink adequate fluids and she wont have anything to worry about. Last but not the least is stress which she needs to cope up with, if she needs psychotherapy for help, she can consult a good psychotherapist in that regard.

I hope it helps. take good care of yourself and dont forget to close the discussion please.
