"DR. PHIL SEXUALLY ABUSED ME!"
"Dr. Phil is a monster!" Those are the angry words of a former patient of Dr. Phil McGraw, who is revealing the shocking story of the sexual abuse she suffered at the hands of the TV shrink!
Sara Morrison is speaking out in a world-exclusive ENQUIRER interview - divulging sickening details of how talk-show titan Oprah Winfrey's former protege repeatedly fondled her, sexually abusing her while she was being treated by him.
The 44-year-old mother of one also reveals authorities were called in to investigate the abuse, threatening Dr. Phil's career as a psychologist and his marriage to wife Robin, who was outraged by the charges.
"Not a single day has gone by when I haven't been affected by what Phil McGraw did to me," Sara told The ENQUIRER.
"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."
Sara was a college sophomore home for the summer when she sought treatment from Dr. Phil in Wichita Falls, Texas, in 1984.
"I suffered from low self-esteem, and Iwas depressed, lonely and suicidal," recalled Sara. "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."
While treating her that summer, Dr. Phil did nothing improper, she says. But his attitude changed completely the following summer when, in a highly unethical move, he paid Sara to work as his intern, while charging her as a patient at the same time.
"The first day I showed up for work, Phil had his hands all over me," she recalled.
At the time, the then 34-year-old psychologist and his second wife Robin had been married for eight years, but that didn't stop his sexually aggressive behavior, Sara said.
"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."
