My plan against pushers is fairly simple: to dish out as much pain to them as they to me.
I love playing against pushers. My mental approach is that there is nothing they can do to hurt me (shot wise), so I can dictate points on my terms. Whereas playing against shotmakers, I am much more on edge because I know they can win the point outright if I make a weaker shot, so I feel more pressure to go for my own shots.
