Reward her everytime she doesn't something positive. Is she around anyone who yells a lot or some one she may see having anger issues?

Have you considered having her talk to someone outside of the situation? Maybe something is bothering her...

Is this something she could talk to someone about? Like a counselor?

Either reinforce positive behavior or maybe take her to a therapist.

I had really bad anger when I was young.  Honestly, I used to bite pillows because it was nondestructive and my parents wouldn't yell at me.  Maybe you could give her a diary to write out her feelings in.  If she allows, maybe you could read it with her after she writes in it so you can help her with it.  Maybe getting her involved in a sport to release some of that pent up anger...hitting a ball does wonders when your angry.

A friend suggested karate or softball. But her biological dad told her he didnt want her and his grandmother who was still in her life stopped seeing her and then would make plans and shoot her down the day before. And then 4 th of July of 2009 her great great grandmother passed. It's been rough for her. I thought of doing a therapists but she doesn't open up to ppl.

A therapist knows how to get people to open up. I would try it.

 as soon as she starts to get angry....have a plan...whether it's to sit her down and have her write what is making her mad....or have her try to articulate what she is thinking and feeling at that very moment.  This may help at times to diffuse the anger.
