Yeah, you need to be especially patient with your new bird. Even if the bird is very tame, it still might be quite shy when its in a new home with new and unfamiliar people.
Daisy gave very good information, pretty much everything I was thinking as I read your post. The trick is to take it slow and be patient and gentle.
Go slowly. Let your bird get used to its surroundings. Then, when it seems more comfortable, begin to talk or sing to it outside of the cage. After a while of doing that, you can try to feed her treats from your hand, then eventually moving onto sticking your hand in the cage. Never force her out of the cage or grab her. Try to avoid making sudden movements or loud noises.
Transitions can be hard on birds, so let her move at her own pace.
