The Story Behind the Name

"Hey, Foggy Morning!"  My Uncle Tim would greet me with these words every time he saw me. I'm unsure if my mother was aware of the pun when she named me Misty Dawn, but my uncle sure caught on…

Uncle Tim was my biggest supporter throughout my childhood. He encouraged me throughout my hearing struggles. He was my champion and cheerleader through some very tough times in my life.​  

Characteristically, seeing the lighter side of life, he nicknamed me Foggy Morning on the day I was born, and the nickname stuck. When it came time to name my private practice, there was no doubt it would be Foggy Morning Therapy.

Misty Hinnefeld, 


Hi I'm Foggy Morning!

As your therapist, I bring a deep empathy for the hurdles life throws your way and a profound appreciation for the resilience it takes to overcome them.

My personal journey has equipped me with a unique understanding of facing and conquering challenges. Born deaf in one ear and with limited hearing in the other, I grappled with academic and social struggles from an early age. But with unwavering support from my family, I not only persevered but flourished.

My upbringing instilled in me invaluable lessons in resilience and adaptability. Immersed in sign language and lip-reading as a child, I honed essential life skills. The transformative gift of a Cochlear Implant later enhanced my hearing beyond what traditional aids could offer.

With this firsthand understanding of overcoming adversity and embracing change, I am uniquely positioned to guide you on your journey. Together, we'll navigate life's obstacles, mend emotional wounds, and empower you to achieve your goals. Your path to emotional well-being begins here, and I'm honored to walk beside you every step of the way.
