She SUCKS!!!! I had enough of her CRAP after 10 years os seeing her!!!!!She is sarcastic, Does not give a DAMN for a client
Always LATE for appointments, Interrupts your sessions by taking phone calls during your session that you pay for!!!! Give away your already scheduled appointments to other people. When your sick she NEVER even calls to see how your doing even after cancelling 2 appointments in a row, you would THINK she'd CARE ENOUGH to check on you to see how you are doing and why a client cancels 2 appointments in a row, She SUCKS as a therapist

I have seen Diane for years, and credit her with saving my life. Her skills are top notch and she goes far beyond the call of duty to help those in need. I doubt I could list the ways she has helped me in this limited space. She truly is an expert of her field, and anyone who says other wise is a fool. Diane is someone you can trust your life with. I did, and have no regrets.

Early in therapy, I saw Ellaborn as a very mediocre therapist who could be potentially helpful if she were to get to know me better and understand my needs. As therapy went on, I realized she has numerous flaws as a therapist. She tends to lump people into categories of her preconceptions and then use a cookie-cutter approach that she assumes helps everyone in that category, regardless of the evidence for whether it is helpful for the individual. She would get very abrasive and condescending if I tried to explain that her approach was extremely harmful and her attitude about me was wrong. She formed the category that she put me in long before the necessary evidence was given. Her rigid idea of what was right for me resulted in significant medical, personal and emotional issues for me that cause problems to this day. And, by the way, by "categories of preconceptions," I don't mean mere diagnoses. I mean intense stereotypes of diagnoses with automatic ideas of how to treat them that she insisted on clinging to despite massive contradictory evidence at every step that her ideas were completely wrong and were acitvely harming me. I only continued to see her for such a long period of time because of sunk costs fallacy thinking on the part of my parents. They acknowledged that she was a terrible therapist, but insisted it would be harder to get help from a new one. Eventually we quit because she was such a horrible therapist

I have had a chronic disorder most of my life. After seeing at least 15 other therapist's over the past 15 years this therapist is by far the best. She is understanding, available, flexible with scheduleing and has referred me to the best MD I have had in 57 years. I have considered moving out of state but I have not simply because I can't replace the support network this doctor has provided me. she has worked with me as far as insurance.I can't say enough good aboout her.
