it sounds like maybe she isn't seeing the "mutual benefit" side of things.
do you farm out your design work to her? if so, it only seems to help you
both to have it in your portfolio.

on the other hand, maybe she doesn't like the other things in your
portfolio, and that's whats really at issue (designers can/have to be picky)

on the third hand (yes, i have one of those), if you didn't agree it in the
first place, negotiation has to be endured. maybe more valuable to you,
would be a teeny link in her footer that said "site programming by: your
link here"
maybe she'll agree to that as a compromise... ;o)
