With a blend of empathy and professionalism, we listen with the goal of understanding. We are dedicated to creating personal connections with our clients, building trusting relationships, and developing customized and attainable solutions. 

Our counselors have the experience of consulting at the Center for Internet and Technology Addiction and Rushford Treatment Centers. They’ve learned to provide a specialized approach to guiding individuals through a tailored recovery process. 

We have worked hands-on with individuals struggling and striving through every stage of the recovery and healing process. Using a compassionate and effective approach to behavioral therapy, Plan Be counselors can provide individual, family and group counseling, develop treatment plans, and monitor patients’ progress.
