Garner Music Therapy     

Garner Music Therapy opened in late January 2024 as a contract-based music therapy service providing both group and individual therapy sessions to a variety of populations, including children with developmental disabilities, older adults, and adolescents facing mental and behavioral challenges.  

Founder and owner of Garner Music Therapy LLC, Logan Garner, is a board-certified music therapist who received his bachelor’s degree from Drury University in 2023.  

“My services are most known for having a holistic approach to allow for a wholeness perspective of every client,” Garner says. “This provides a space for every client to be themselves without shame, setting the therapeutic relationship as the foundation of growth and self-actualization.” 

Music therapy involves the use of evidence-based and clinical music interventions by a credentialed professional to achieve individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship. Garner’s work emphasizes fostering a sense of empowerment through the improvement of therapeutic relationships. Through evidence-based music therapy services, he aims to help individuals achieve their highest potential by enhancing their physical, emotional, cognitive, and social well-being. 

“I opened this business as a way to give back to the community that raised me through musical expression,” he adds. “I wanted to bring the healing power of music to these populations that deserve nothing less than the love, respect, and creativity that music provided to me.” 

Garner serves the mid-Missouri area by traveling to different state schools, mental health facilities, and private practices.

Wynnsome Cake & Tea    

Located in the heart of downtown Columbia on East Broadway, Wynnsome Cake & Tea provides a serene environment for people to relax and connect with loved ones over a variety of teas, locally roasted coffee, and delicious cake slices. According to the store’s website, the name “Wynnsome” means “rooted in joy,” “pleasing,” and “often engaging because of charm and innocence.” 

This charming dessert spot first opened its doors on February 29, 2024, thanks to Emma Briner, a Columbia native who, as a child, used to dream of owning a bakery. As she grew up, Briner pursued that passion by baking casually for friends and working as a barista, which eventually led to the creation of Wynnsome. 

Currently, the shop offers several varieties of drinks, such as matcha lattes, chai tea, espressos, and cappuccinos. The basic cake flavors include carrot, lemon gooey butter, coconut, and chocolate olive oil. Briner’s ultimate goal is to take custom cake orders for special events such as birthdays, weddings, and showers. She also hopes to eventually open the store for space rentals to share the cozy vibe with larger groups of people. 

Wynnsome is open from noon to 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, making it the perfect spot to work from or to enjoy the evening with a group of friends.
