With a statuesque six-foot-two frame, shaved head and steely glare, Dr. Imani Walker is a striking and outspoken psychiatrist who serves as Medical Director of Gateways Hospital & Mental Health Center in LA. Dr. Imani deals with patients who suffer from mental issues, homelessness, schizophrenia and chronic depression. After long and arduous work days, Imani wants nothing more than to enjoy a quiet night at home with her husband, Phil Johnson, from the 90’s R&B group “Portrait” and son, Idris.
This year, Imani is working on breaking the cycles from her complicated childhood. Having found out that her father has overcome a drug habit, Imani feels the timing is right for the two of them to rebuild a relationship and pursues meeting up with him for the first time in decades. When issues are spinning out of control in Imani’s personal life, she enjoys the control and rewards she gets from her high-pressure career. Imani is normally stoic and controlled, but when something happens that strikes a nerve, she is quick to snap back.
