"Not a single day has gone by when I haven't been affected by what Phil McGraw did to me," Sarah said. "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 sought treatment in 1984 because she was suffering from low-esteem, depression and suicidal thoughts.

She told the publication: "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."

A representative for Dr. Phil has fired back at the claims saying they are not only "untrue" but were "thoroughly investigated by the board more than 20 years ago, found to be without merit, and summarily dismissed."

According to Radar Online, Sara revealed the alleged abuse began when she started interning for him.

"The first day I showed up for work, Phil had his hands all over me," she claimed. "There was never intercourse, but a lot of sexual touching."



"I just froze when he touched me," she said. "I never touched him back," she said.

Sara claims Oprah's protegee was "hyper-sexed" and would even change clothes in his office while she was watching: "When he’d undress in front of me, I’d turn my head away. He’d say, ‘What’s the big deal?’ Phil was always talking about sex."

The claims were investigated and Dr. Phil had behaved inappropriately, according to documents obtained by Radar Online.
