I want her to know I'm there for her because she's going through tough times, but she has this I can handle it approach because she doesn't feel comfortable being vulnerable due to a toxic relationship previously. I wanted her to know she didn't have to go through it alone, but I heard from her friend she found it clingy, which is the last thing I want because I value my own space and hate to feel suffocated.

You could always just ask her if she felt that you were being kind of clingy. Maybe she isn't use to someone wanting to be there for her. My last bf was like that. I always let him know that I'm there for him if he needed anything. Unfortunately, some people would rather take someone caring about them for granted. But yea... just ask her. It doesn't hurt at all.1
