          How Dr. Phil And Robin Are Helping A Survivor Of Domestic Violence Move Forward


          November 17, 2017

          One in three women have been victims of some form of physical violence by an intimate partner, according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Know someone in an abusive relationship?

          Nikki is one of those women. She says when she tried to end her relationship with a boyfriend, he violently attacked her.

          “My ex-came into the house. He came through the door yelling at me,” says Nikki of a man she dated for more than two years. “He grabbed a cell phone cord, threw me down here on the ground and he tied it around my neck. The cord broke, and I ran out.” She says now, she wants to start focusing on herself again. “Looking in the mirror reminds me of what I’ve been through,” Nikki says. “Because of the stress of my relationship, I’m seeing the signs on my skin. I would love to find a way to improve my skin and erase my past.”

          Passionate about helping victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, Robin McGraw launched the When Georgia Smiled: The Robin McGraw Revelation and Dr. Phil Foundation. The Foundation has created the Aspire Initiative, a free domestic violence educational curriculum aiming to reduce the level of intimate relationship violence and instill the importance of bystander responsibility as well as the Aspire App, voted on Capitol Hill as one of the two best apps for domestic violence prevention.

          “Our goal at When Georgia Smiled is to do what we can to help women, children, and men escape from domestic violence and sexual assault and give them the tools to live happy and joy-filled lives free of abuse,” Robin says.

          As Nikki works to rebuild her life and confidence, Dr. Phil and Robin surprise her with a makeover.

          “I feel amazing. I haven’t felt this beautiful in a long time,” Nikki says.
