Ryan Asherin, Ph.D. | 303.834.1026 ext. 12

Dr. Asherin is a pediatric clinical health psychologist with a firm belief that education, prevention, and early access to services provides the best possible outcomes. His approach incorporates biological, psychological, and social factors that promote or impact one’s health. Clinically, he empowers children and families to embrace their strengths while working collaboratively to identify and treat maladaptive behavior patterns through the use of evidenced-based interventions. Dr. Asherin is trained in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders originating in childhood and adolescence, with an advanced specialization in the treatment of infant and early childhood mental health.

Dr. Asherin received his PhD from the University of Colorado Denver in Clinical Health Psychology after successfully completing externships at Children’s Hospital Colorado, National Jewish Health, University of Colorado Hospital, and a predoctoral internship in rural integrated care through the Munroe Myer Institute at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Prior to joining Birch Psychology, Dr. Asherin completed dual postdoctoral fellowships in integrated primary care at Children’s Hospital Colorado and infant and early childhood mental health through the University of Colorado School of Medicine’s Irving J. Harris Program.

Dr. Asherin’s research has focused on the delivery of integrated mental health services, health disparities in underrepresented populations, epigenetic factors related to Oxytocin & perinatal mental health, and clinical data use in healthcare settings. He has a growing interest in mental health technology utilization and the insightful use of advanced data science methods to better understand mental health needs and access to resources.
