The Team


Mission Statement

We strive to combine the best of Modern Western Veterinary medicine and technology with Holistic veterinary medicine to help your pet thrive and heal. We tailor our approach and recommendations to each pet and family’s specific needs as we understand everyone is unique. We value the quality of life of our patients, clients and team and make that a priority in everything we do.

We Treat the Whole System, Not Just the Current Symptom

About Our Clinic

At Coastal Holistic we strive to provide a comfortable, calm and quiet environment for healing your pet. It is for this reason that we do not offer emergency services. Our goal is for our clinic to feel more like a home than a hospital.

​Our doctors are licensed veterinarians, which allows us to provide the most modern, non-invasive Western veterinary care with a holistic point-of-view. We like to think this means we have “more tools in our toolbox” when it comes to treating your pet. If needed, we can perform diagnostic testing including, bloodwork, urine/ fecal analysis, and cytology, and we can also prescribe necessary Western medications. We have a wide network of referral hospitals that we work with if your pet requires additional services.

Whole-Hearted Reviews

Dr. Molly has been our primary vet but Dr. Kari and Dr. Sara have also assisted us and they couldn’t be any nicer or more thorough with their support and treatment. Truly the best vet team in the Bay Area.


Kari took the best care of our skittish and defensive rescue terrier, and of us! We had been to two others vets over the course of her earlier years, both of whom felt the need to muzzle her. Kari never needed that. She was so skillful, our dog felt at ease with her. After we found Coastal Holistic, we looked no further. I recommend them without reservation.

I began seeing Kari & Molly due to my dog's skin condition. They were very caring & nurturing, my dog was seen on a weekly basis and she loved both vets. She knew they were helping her to heal and get strong. She eventually did heal although she still has a hereditary condition, I can't thank them enough!

Daphne H.

Amazing level of personal care and attention. Holistic approach to pet’s health and well-being without the omnipresent marketing push of unnecessary medications and procedures. Authentic healers.

Aleksey B.

Kari and Molly have seen all our pets. They are amazing with animals! Their care and knowledge are a priceless treasure, and we are grateful to have them as our friends and vets.
