I think you and your husband should make the decision together...kids are immature, and how they feel now might not be how to feel in a year or two. And in any case, when they are the adult they can decide what size family they want for themselves.
If he anger issues are that bad though I would take into account the safety needs of the new baby and your other kids. Hopefully meeting with the counselor will help her out.
My oldest is eight, and she seems to have a greater need for one on one time with my husband and I. I don't know if it is because she is the oldest or just her personality. I really try to make that time for her though. It doesn't have to be much...just running to the store with just me, or getting to sit with her dad and watch a move makes her so happy. I read this book about "Love languages" for kids (they have one for adults and marriages) too, and it is clear her "language" is "quality time."
