About Camille Kinzler

Camille Kinzler helps the high-achieving, social over-drinker learn to destress, relax, and connect without instinctively reaching for her go-to cocktail by creating a life she doesn’t want to numb.

She is an alcohol-free lifestyle and habits expert with a Master’s in Science and Physician Assistant (PA) Studies who is passionate about helping women create the life they choose through the C.O.Z.Y. Method.

She specializes in helping women explore whether alcohol is helping them manifest the life they desire. Through 1-on-1 and small group coaching via video conferencing, Camille guides women in 100-day explorations around their vices by using her signature C.O.Z.Y. Method. This isn’t about quitting your vices cold turkey, it’s about expanding your awareness, not limiting it.

In addition to her private coaching practice, Camille is a physician assistant who specializes in root-cause medicine. She has worked in urgent care and family practice for over 11 years. She draws on her medical education, as well as her training as a neuro-linguistic programming practitioner, and certified life and recovery (from all vices) coach to help women discover the root cause of their habits. She ultimately helps women create a life they don’t want to numb.

Addressing Perfectionism as a Cause of Drinking

Camille recognizes how hard it can be to break habits. When we try to change our relationship with drinking, we need to look at all our habits. Camille describes how she helps women intentionally set themselves up for success by building good habits overall. This means slowing down and not trying to be perfect in all things. 

This mindset shift is central to self-regulation. Without it, many people try to cope by turning to alcohol. It’s not easy to create habits to make healthy changes. That’s why Camille shares some actionable tips you can start using right away to help make a difference.


Building Healthy Habits That Last

To make lasting changes to our habits, Camille stresses above all the value of consistency. By addressing the way that you build your habits, including habits around behavior and thoughts, you can start to make changes that will actually last. In other words, it’s not enough to just do something differently. You need to consider how these changes affect your behavior and set long-term goals to make them work over the long run.

“It’s not to ask yourself if you have a problem with drinking. It’s ‘is alcohol serving me in my life?’” [8:08]

“I think that there’s this idea of perfectionism within women. We are expected by society, and also by ourselves, to do everything. And we can’t do everything and we really have to take responsibility and learn how to slow down.” [11:10]

“I had to trust that it would all fall into place. I know that that’s really hard to do at the beginning because we’re shedding an identity and that can be scary.” [24:04]

“If we can really lean into these uncomfortable moments where we want to have a drink or we have a craving and we get to the other side, that builds confidence. That allows us to trust ourselves more.” [29:29]

“It’s just all about paying attention to the little things that we’re doing that are on a subconscious level… and how we can slowly integrate or change the way that we do those in our lives.” [40:51]
