Could I sue a tenant for undue stress and anguish for non-payment of rents? I am in the process of suing him for rents/late fees, and am including late fees from banks and vendors, though I have damaged relationships with vendors/banks, a low credit score and have suffered anxiety and mental anguish over finances for months due to non-payment, resulting in picking up another part-time job just to make it.

No. Emotional distress damages are only recoverable for SEVERE emotional distress, something that by itself drives you into psychotherapy at a minimum.
