#168 – Seeing Beyond Diagnosis & Labels with Dr. Fred Moss

Dr Fred Moss podcast

This week on the Curiosity & Consciousness podcast, Dr. Fred Moss of Welcome to Humanity joins me.

Dr. Fred is a Holistic Physician, Restorative Coach & Podcaster. He arrived on Earth on March 1, 1958, and from that very second has been earmarked to be a healer. The family he was born into was in chaos and, in many ways, was counting on his arrival to bring health and wellness back into balance. Little Freddy had his hands full, and over the next six decades, he has made it his business to bring healing to the world around him, not only to his family and friends but to the community and world at large.  What a journey it has been.

Dr. Fred has had a host of life experiences, including, among other things, being a 2-time college dropout and a Northwestern University Medical School graduate (1988). Over the last four decades, he has been firmly entrenched in the mental health system, first as a childcare worker and then as an internationally well-known psychiatrist. In addition, he has had leadership roles in multiple modalities, including inpatient and outpatient, homeless shelters, nursing homes, orphanages, halfway houses, drug rehabilitation centres, home visits, prisons and jails, and telepsychiatry in many regions of the USA.

Dr. Fred has been committed to the notion that communication, connection, creativity, and conversation are at the heart of all healing of all conditions of all types. Without this, people simply do not heal. With it, miracles regularly occur. Voices heal. Listening heals. We humans are best when we are connected to others, and Dr. Fred’s life mission has now become to assure that all people know that who they are and what they do matters and that their voice, no matter where they are from, or where they are going, can be heard.

As the founder of the Welcome to Humanity movement, and the True Voice Podcasting Mastermind and methodology, Dr. Fred now finds himself making the difference he came here to make. His years in the community, where he has been a physician to over 40,000 patients, and his storied and adventurous life traveling around the world, has now left him uniquely qualified to remind us all of what we already know. Communication is where love arises from and speaking truth and listening authentically are the source of that love.

Dr. Fred is married to his dream partner, Alexandra, and lives in the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas in Northern California. He is the proud father of two beautiful children in Texas and is owned collectively by his three cats, Valentino, Despacito, and Winston.


A brilliant conversation with Dr. Fred who is also known as ‘The Recovering Psychiatrist’ and the ‘Un-Doctor’ for his ‘unconventional’ way of dealing with mental health. Having spent over 40 years in the mental health sector, he’s not interested in labels & diagnosis, or writing prescriptions for people. His experience has provided him much more value & success for patients.

In this episode he talks about:

  • His quest to be a communicator
  • Why he didn’t like how psychiatry treated patients
  • How no human is ‘broken’
  • Why creativity & connection are at the heart of healing
  • His success in talking his patients off medication
  • Root causes of mental issues
  • The importance of self-expression
  • How 3 minutes a day can change your life
  • Why life & living takes intentionality
  • And much more
