Odds are he is well past the time limitations to file a mechanic's lien, but she probably doesn't know that.
Draw up one last professional, and pointed, letter (receipt signature required) stating your intentions to file a lien on her house/take her to court. If she doesn't cave and pay, you have no alternative other than to take her to court. Beyond that, any "tactics" you might try could result in trouble for you instead.
