Dr. Emma Ryan (Sonya Walger) graduated at the top of her class with a firm belief in what good psychiatry can do. But years of popping out prescriptions for her wealthy Beverly Hills clients had her feeling like a glorified pill dispenser. Hoping to roll up her sleeves and do some real good, Dr. Ryan soon began offering low-cost group therapy at the local community center. It was Dr. Ryan's work with Captain Sutton that eventually brought Wes and Travis in to her couples counseling group. And while it's clear to her from the very beginning that the detectives are going to be tough patients, Dr. Ryan isn't one to back down from a challenge.
