Aneska was 12 when her parents, Melanie and Dave, wrote to the producers at Dr. Phil desperate for help with her aggressive behavior. “She’s uncontrollable. Very volatile,” said her father, Dave, at the time. Melanie noted that Aneska was holding the family in “a constant state of crisis.”

That was in season 14. Today, 18-year-old Aneska says her life is great. She says she is about to graduate high school, her relationship with her family is strong, and she’s no longer experiencing the anger and out-of-control behaviors of the past.

“If it wasn’t for you, God knows what would have happened,” says Aneska to Dr. Phil.
