What you describe tends to make me think that your personal anxiety is making it harder for your four year old to adapt. She is anxious because you are; and, she may have some resource guarding issues in addition to the anxiety. You could get some training so that you don't feel anxious and you can help her to relax. I also think doggie day care, and dog parks help dogs learn to socialize in groups.
In most cases, I'd just let the two dogs work it out; but, taking both of them for group play might be the ticket. If you're not comfortable with that, then I'd take the younger one to classes where you can get help.
