About Phil Mcgraw

Dr Phil McGraw attended the University of Tulsa in Oklahoma on a football scholarship but switched to psychology after an injury ended his athletic career. He transferred to Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas, and earned a B.A. in 1975.

Phil began his career as a psychologist after earning a master’s degree and a doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of North Texas. He formed a company with his father, who was also a psychologist, and another partner to run self-motivation and life-skills seminars across the country.

McGraw quickly realized, however, that he did not have the patience for the subtleties and ambiguous time frames of traditional talk therapy. He closed the practice and began working as a corporate consultant.

McGraw and a lawyer friend founded Courtroom Sciences, Inc. (CSI) in 1989 to provide lawyers with mock trial, jury selection, and mediation services. CSI rose to national prominence after successfully guiding the defense lawyers in the infamous Exxon Valdez oil spill trial to victory. When Oprah Winfrey was sued for defamation by disgruntled Texas cattlemen in 1996, her defense team sought the assistance of CSI.

Dr. Phil and her team coached Winfrey and her defense team, who eventually won. Winfrey thanked McGraw by inviting him to appear on her show. Her viewers were so taken with his down-home charm and what they perceived to be his razor-sharp psychological analyses (Winfrey dubbed him “Tell It Like It Is Phil”) that he quickly became a regular fixture on the show.

McGraw was featured on Winfrey’s “Change Your Life” segments before graduating to weekly appearances as the main attraction on her hugely popular “Tuesdays with Dr. Phil.”

He launched his own show, Dr. Phil, in 2002, which was produced by Winfrey’s Harpo Studios, and the one-hour program was an instant success. McGraw continued to remind his audience that he was providing education rather than “eight-minute cures” or true psychotherapy, avoiding psychobabble and touchy-feely approaches. McGraw’s ability to provide real solutions to real problems in his characteristically blunt but caring manner was highlighted in the show.
