About Nancy


Nancy B. Perlson, LCSW, RYT
Creator  of The “behind-the-ink”  project

As a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) working primarily in the field of bereavement and loss, Nancy has had the opportunity to work with hundreds of individuals, in groups and private practice, moving through the complicated journey that follows the death of a loved one. Nancy is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) and member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT). In 2010, Nancy created the yoga bereavement support program, Connecting Through Yoga, a support program which uses the practice of yoga as a healing tool throughout the grieving process.

Perhaps because of Nancy’s work with bereavement and yoga, she has, quite literally, had the opportunity to see more skin of those with whom she works. Nancy has been overwhelmed by the beauty and power of the stories told in ink. As a result, she created the project, behind-the-ink, a place where she hopes to draw those voices together in creating a visual collection of the new language of love, loss, and resilience.
