Tiana Cicco, MA 2015, holds a BA in philosophy and English from UCLA. Her MA reflects a concentration in eco-psychology. Before attending CIIS, Tiana worked as a naturalist interpreter with California State Parks in Los Angeles and Marin Counties. Since graduating, she has continued to develop her private practice as an eco-therapist, conducting counseling sessions with adults in nature. She also works part-time for a local nonprofit teaching nature education and survival skills to children. For her MA final project, Tiana started the Envisioning Utopia Discussion Group, where people come together to co-create constructive dreams for a sustainable future. Tiana lives in West Marin where she practices creative writing, participates in ecstatic dance, performs locally as a singer, and continues to explore the beautiful land that is her home.
