i live in a house for kids whose parents can't / won't take

i live in a house for kids whose parents can't / won't take them, i leave the house next month. the person who gave birth to me i will call her Jay, is a huuuuge narcissist. My therapist told me that i should just not engage in arguments since Jay is just trying to make me mad, and to tell her "lets talk about this in family therapy".
sounds easy right?
well i had a home visit with Jay to see how it would go and she was literally SO rude to me and manipulative and i just had to let her act like a child. children have to have their temper tantrums and just let it happen and that's how it is with Jay. i have to let her take her anger out and then try to reason with her. but it makes me so anxious.
I have been trying some breathing exercises and medication (i am starting buspar soon for the anxiety, anyone have an experience with buspar?????)
any advice or coping skills? i have a lot of skills such as music (playing or listening) walking talking to my friends writing things like that. any breathing things?

@Mighty_mert thank you! yes i have to live with her. she has FULL custody of me. she won't let me live with someone else because of her reputation, my only other option is being in treatment until i'm 18. i can't live that far away from my bf and friends for 15 more months
