Dr. Phil is my hero! Dr. Phil McGraw was born on September 1, 1950 and grew up in Texas. He and his wife, Robin, currently live in Los Angeles, California. The couple have been married for 30 years, and have two sons, Jordan, their youngest son, and Jay.
Dr. Phil’s well-known catch phrases include, “You cannot change what you do not acknowledge” and, “How’s that workin’ for ya?” Dr. Phil’s “get real” approach has helped many couples and families deal with their problems, getting down to the no-nonsense, nitty-gritty of their issues, in order to put their “family first”.
He believes nothing is impossible. He believes there is a solution for every challenge you may face. He makes for a great role model. Dr. Phil has done much to assist those who have been hard hit by Hurricane Katrina and Rita. He continues to devote episodes to the relief efforts that destroyed homes and lives in the Gulf Coast region.
Dr. Phil is the author of six #1 New York Times bestsellers. His books have been published in 39 languages with over 24 million copies in print.
Dr. Phil founded the “Dr. Phil Foundation”. This non-profit, charitable foundation supports organizations and programs that address the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual needs of children and families. It is also devoted to rewarding remarkable children who work very hard to overcome obstacles and give back to their families and communities.
