• The Founder and CHO (Chief Hope Officer) for EVER HOPE is Michael A. Schreiner, Ph.D.
  • Dr. Schreiner is a Clinical Psychologist by training and profession.  He is a licensed psychologist in the state of Utah and has maintained a private practice the last 20+ years.  He began professional counseling over 30 years ago.
  • A graduate of BYU, University of Utah, and the California School of Professional Psychology (CSPP), San Diego, Dr. Schreiner loves his transplant state of Utah, as well as the southern coast of California.  His heart is always with the coast and the ocean.  He also has a special affinity for Louisville, Kentucky, where he completed his final psychology internship and post-doctoral fellowship at the Bingham Child Guidance Center, University of Louisville hospitals.
  • A native of Detroit, Michigan, Dr. Schreiner is an avid Detroit sports fan, and as such, is a fiercely loyal Tigers, Lions, and Michigan – Go Blue! – fan.  It is not uncommon to see him checking out the latest team scores, even during worship services!
  • Dr. Schreiner has six adult children, nine grandchildren, and a core group of life-long friends, several of whom he grew up with in Michigan.
  • Dr. Schreiner learned years ago in training, that the single most important construct in the psychology world of treating patients is that of Hope.  While he has always embraced hope in his personal and professional life, the remainder of his career is now solely dedicated to the spreading of hope to people everywhere on a macro level.
  • “Every single traveler on this path of life needs hope, to some degree or another”, as stated by Dr. Schreiner.  He further gives the reader a glimpse of how he has needed hope at various times in his own personal life:
  •   “From the moment of my birth, weighing in at a whopping 3.8 lbs, my dear mother, her doctor, and I am sure, myself, were grasping on to hope for this small babe to survive”.
  • “As a child in the 60’s and a teen in the 70’s”, I could surely relate with Dickens’ statement “it was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness…” (Tale of Two Cities).  “There was the ecstatic highs of cheering on the World Series Detroit Tigers in 1968, and then there was  the lowest of lows while grappling my way out of a smoke-ring, haze-filled existence in 1978.  Hope conquered despair”.
  • “The greatest blessing in my life is my family.  Cheering on my kids at their various activities was always a joy for me.  The good times were filled with joy, while their heartaches were mine as well.  Tears of joy as well as sadness, along with lumps in the throat, were all part of raising a family.  The highest high – the day their mother and I married.  The lowest low – the agony and pain of a divorce many years later.  I can confidently say now, the light at the end of the tunnel was Hope, along with God’s love and support.  Again, Hope conquered despair”.

  • Dr. Schreiner’s primary objective at this time is to encourage all of us life travelers to jump on board the Hope train.  In so doing, experience the joy of giving hope to others, while at the same time feeling hopeful about our own lives.
