Let’s state up top that Dr. Phil is not a licensed mental health professional. He surrendered his license to the state of Texas in 2006 and has never been licensed in the state of California, where the Dr. Phil Show is taped. In fact, guests on his show sign release forms that state they’re merely receiving advice, not medical diagnoses, from Dr. Phil. And while he does have a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from North Texas State University, which technically makes him a doctor, he’s no longer a practicing therapist.
