How do I stop this behavior?

I have tried counseling but she doesn't act out at counseling.

First try talking to her and ask what is making her so mad. No need to tell me but ask yourself, has anything or could of anything happened in the home or to her that could be causing her to act out.l Was there a divorce, or new child, or someone close leave or pass away, etc. Many things could be a cause. I was a victim of child molesting as a young child and was told that if i ever said anything to anyone that my mother and sister would be hurt. I then was with an abusive man in my early 20's. It took a long time for me to get past this, but now I am a born again Christian. I am not saying these things have happened to her but is something to look into. I remember being angry with everyone and would lash out.
