Does anyone know what I can do to make her happy? She’s ...

Your plant looks beautiful! There are several kinds of heartleaf philos, perhaps you have a lighter kind. Giving it less light might allow the leaves to get darker as well.
@IconCoffeebush I think she looks beautiful and happy, but it might be hard to tell what you mean from the pic. I’ve noticed that the new growth on my philos tends to be lighter green and darkens as they harden off. If this is new growth I think she’s happy. But if it seems to you like the leaves are kind of losing color/getting more pale, my guess is that the pot is too large (looks like 5”?) so the roots might be staying too wet. Losing color can be an early sign of root rot.
Such a stunning plant! I honestly think you’re on the right track but i couldn’t agree with @sarahsalith more!
