Definitely there are issues with emotional regulation. Anger outbursts could be due to many causes. It is difficult to comment upon exact diagnosis without examining the patient. There are drugs available to improve her symptoms. If she is not ready to consult a psychiatrist now, i would suggest you to visit a clinical psychologist for assessment. The psychologist will assess need for psychotherapy and might direct her to consult a psychiatrist too for medications.
