Door casing with counter design flaw (please see picture) = Help?

I have no idea what to do here. The original design flaw is the door being so close to the counter top. Just has the granite installed and it sticks out pass the door. The door already is the smallest size it can be too. I'm having a tile backsplash going in soon as well. Not sure where it should stop next to the door.
How should I minimize this eye-sore with the door casing. I have a sample of the casing I'm using in one of the pictures.

If you can't move the door over a few inches.

Install casing as you have shown.
Have the edge of the counter bevelled/rounded to be in line with the jamb or the casing, but no less then the edge of the casing.
Just to clarify I mean just nick the end, not down the entire length.

any way you could cut and sand it so that its flush with the door ?

Can you give us a picture taken from a few feet back?

This is what I would do as well.

Ya know drywall can be finished be so no trim would be necessary. They make metal just for that.

Casing sitting on top of that counter would always look like a mistake imo.

for me the best thing is to move the door over a few inches. If you can not do that If the rest of the doors are cased then this being drywall return will look off. Just my opinion, depends on the look you want.
