Our family has been meeting with Diane for over 7 years now. We have found her approach to be cautious and thorough. In addition we have found her to be open and honest. When our daughter needed help, Diane was in her corner fighting for her best interest. I would recommend Diane in a heartbeat. I've read the other reviews and can honestly state that we have never witnessed any of the alleged actions. She has always been on time, never condescending and always very respectful regarding our feelings.

Diane TURNED HER BACK ON ME WHEN I NEED HELP!!!!!!!!
Hows THAT!! from your therapist, after 10 wasted years with her !! I told her I was leaving, basically FIRING HER, for her NON-RESPONSE to when I was sick under her care !!!! and I guess she didn't like that to much, She doesn't take Constructive Criticism to well !!!!!!, I guess she thinks SHE'S always right !! To Vann S: I challenge Diane, to give you my phone number so that you can hear FIRST HAND on how Diane treated me !!!!!!!! The reason why she's NOT late anymore is because I HAD TO TELL DIANE, WHY are you ALWAYS LATE FOR MY appointments!!!! She ALSO BILLED MEDICARE for appointments I NEVER HAD, for 3 YEARS before I had to CONFRONT HER ABOUT IT!!!!!! She's UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR THAT!!!!! She is also sarcastic and arrogant to me as a client!!!! Plus other CRAP she PULLED on me. Go ahead see if Diane has the GUTS to give you my number and I'll tell you the CRAP she pulled on me !!!!!! She does not Give a DAMN for me as a client ! I had a 2pm appointment one day and SHE WAS NOT EVEN ON SITE, her car was gone, she FINALLY shows up LATE AGAIN, tells me oh I'll make up for the time at the end, her usual excuse to me!!!!! She gives my scheduled appointments AWAY to other people without even telling me before hand ! I was not feeling well one time in her office, and she knew I was really sick, I had to cancel my next 2 weeks appointments, she NEVER even calls to find out why, or ask how I was doing !!!! She INSULTS and DISRESPECTED me as a client !!!!!! When I was Early and On-time for my 11am appointment, she was LATE as usual, this guy shows up as I waited he proceeds to tell me he was LATE for his 10am appointment !!!!! I said to him I think your like an HOUR LATE !!! Diane finally opens the door and takes him in FIRST !!!!
he's an HOUR LATE taking up my time for my 11 am appointment, Diane what the HELL is that ????? She makes appointments and then tells me can she change the time, this happened A LOT !! I was NEVER to a doctor or therapist that CHANGED appointments as many times as Diane did to me !!!

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.
