Barry Levinson - CEO - Charis Behavioral Health

Barry Levinson

CEO

Barry has been very happily married to his wife, Katrina, for 33 years. They have 3 children, one Baylor Bear and 2 Aggies (but, sadly, no Longhorns!).

Charis Behavioral Health wasn’t something Barry ever planned on, but felt called to do. At this time in Barry’s life, he felt strongly about continuing to help children and specifically those impacted by mental health struggles. Barry was introduced to Angel and Kyle by his sister Cherilyn, and they all have been like family ever since. Barry plans to have a profound and measurable impact on the mental health and well being of our youth.

If you come by and meet Barry, expect to hear a dad joke or a proverb that is just right for the day or situation. Charis is thrilled to be under his leadership and proud to carry out his vision.

Angel Logan, LPC​

Executive Director

Angel is a Licensed Professional Counselor with the State of Texas. She completed her undergraduate studies at Louisiana State University.

Following graduation, she and her husband moved to Texas to be closer to her family. She immediately began pursuing a career focused on helping children and families achieve mental and emotional well-being. This began with her employment at Catholic Charities, and then with the Texas Department of Child and Family Services. Angel attended Tarleton State University where she earned a Master of Science in Counseling Psychology. It was around this time that she also began working in a child and adolescent Partial Hospitalization Program. Her gifts didn’t go unnoticed and Angel was offered an opportunity as Assistant Clinic Director at a psychiatric office that provided psychiatric and substance use services to children, adults, and seniors.  Angel has also worked as a therapist in the intake department of a behavioral health hospital where she offered assessments for children in need of behavioral health services. 

Angel is thrilled to put into practice the culmination of her career experience as the Executive Director of Charis Behavioral Health. Many times Angel has said serving kids is what she was born to do. If you come by, you may find her with her shoes off, sitting on the floor helping a child regulate, playing uno with the kids or just helping her staff. If you can’t find her, just give it a minute and listen for her big, infectious laugh.
