Long reach heavy weapon works wonder in this fight. Was using rapier+city spear at first but it didn't give any advantage because of her hyper armor and non-stop delay combo (which can't be more generic in a soul boss game to the point it's boring). Switched to Bone-Cutting Saw +Exploding Pickaxe Handle and cleared the first or maybe the second try. Made this fight much easier.
Start charging heavy attacks. They packs serious punch if used with acidic grindstone in 1st phase (of course it depends on weapon upgrade and your build too), you can easily take out a chunk (~15%) of health each time and they will quickly open her up for a fatal attack. Just watch out for her retaliation before the attack prompt (I think she does this for both phases). You can easily finish this phase without getting hit at all if your attacks connect plus the RNG favors you.
Same tactics for 2nd phase, just be careful her attacks will be a bit more difficult to read now, but you can consistently land a hit or 2 after the initial lightning bolts attack. You should try to reflect them because it gives you huge HP advantage, I never managed to dodge the dive but if you could you should be able to hit one more time. You might need to trade attacks but you still find openings after some combos. Most notably the jumping sword slam+electric discharge attack. You can safely land a hit or 2.
