I've been having quite a bit of trouble with Riven the last few matches and I'm wondering how to counter her. Case in point, I was playing Ashe and simply could not survive against her because her dashes were enough to counteract my slow, just couldn't kite her. SO any suggestions?

If you're Ashe, you're pretty much going to need to outdamage her, aka have a big gold advantage. Otherwise just run, you're probably gonna die. Ashe is pretty much that kind of a champ.

unfortunately as ashe there's not really anything you can do but try to build more movement speed than her and harass with volley

I see what you mean. Slows will not affect her jump lengths, so it wont be that effective.
You shouldnt be having trouble in teamfights. Riven is top priority, and she is not that good on defense so she can be bursted easily.
In lane, just keep your distance. Just remember, for every jump she takes toward you its one less jump she can use to get away. Make sure your jungler is near/someone is near/you have exhaust when she tries to overextend.

I beat a Nasus in lane as Riven. At least until he gets a tri force.

Riven has no sustain. Trynd counters her pretty hard because his W counters all of her ability's scaling and because he can heal most of her damage.
