He’s known to many as a great psychological helper, but one woman says that Dr Phil McGraw caused her way more pain than healing.
44-year-old mother Sara Morrison told press that Dr. Phil sexually abused her while she was his patient while simultaneously working as his intern.
She explained, "Dr. Phil is a monster! Not a single day has gone by when I haven't been affected by what Phil McGraw did to me. He profoundly affected the course of my life. The world should know this man is a predator and a bully. He shouldn't be telling Americans how to live their lives, how to improve themselves."
Morrison began seeing McGraw for care when she was a college sophomore suffering from low self-esteem. "I suffered from low self-esteem, and I was depressed, lonely and suicidal. Phil was extremely insistent that I call him all the time, and he would call me. He wanted to see me three or four times a week - as a patient."
Once she became his intern as well, things took a turn for the worse, she said. "The first day I showed up for work, Phil had his hands all over me. Phil would pull me down to sit in his lap while he talked on the phone to patients, other doctors, even his wife! He'd be running his hand up and down the inside of my thigh all the way up to my panties."
