Have you tried getting her to step up onto a perch, or perch like object? At first my guy would ride a bamboo spoon handle because it resembled a perch, and I walked slowly. He'd also step up onto the perch of his food dish for the same purpose. Even knowing he could go in as he wanted, his bedtime ritual was to go to the top of his cage, wait for scritches, then step up on his food dish as I held it, so I could put him in.

I understand your frustration, but as you said, chasing loses trust. It will take time and patience, but it is a matter of finding what works for her.
