Everyone handles grief differently but there are stages we all go through. When my husband was killed I went around the first month like a zombie, not aware of what was going on around me and going wherever I was led. Then came the anger. I got so violently angry that I had to be sedated. When the tears finally came was almost two months after he had died and I'm surprised I did not flood the house. Our relationship to different people also changes the way we deal. My grief for my husband was entirely different than my grief for my father. We expect our parents to go before we do, just not when we are in our teens. Give her time to get though the various stages and when you think she is ready, then get her counseling.

it's a tough situation, have they had a close relationship? Speaking to a counselor maybe a better solution to getting advice in seeking how to help your daughter thru this grieving process. Perhaps finding a griefing group for teenagers? going to church and seeking someone who can pray over her?
