she has begun asserting herself more and this has lead to her lashing out very aggressively towards me.
What do you mean? What does she do? What does her "lashing out" look like? Some specifics may help us offer tips.

It sounds like she doesn't like it much when you reach out to her. What you might try the next time she growls is turning away from her and ignoring her. As a puppy, she wants your attention, and withdrawing your attention for 10-20 seconds can send a powerful message.

I have to admit I'm not familiar with Shiba Inus, but this has worked for me with other dogs.
