It's possible her hormones are running wild. How long does it usually take post spay for them to calm down?
Counter surf is maybe the wrong word. I have two end tables that are next to my couch and a coffee table. There's about 18" between the couch and the end tables and about 24" between the couch and coffee table, but she is notorious for jumping off the couch or ottoman and onto the end table. I keep joking she needs to be an agility dog because she will practically kill herself trying to get to something she wants. Maybe the better phrase is "Table Surf".

I will have to try that. I've been trying to engage her and it seems like she's just on shutdown mode; she'll just sit down and stare at me. I've never been a fan of the tether method, but I'm willing to give it a shot.

Review your training and go back to puppy 101 and yes, the NILIF. Have you unknowingly scared her, let her get away with anything? Can her hormones be still running wild?
Poms are generally a breeze to train and were one of the best students in my classes.
Btw: how can a Pomeranian counter surf?

Have you had Poms before? My understanding is that they are a shrunken Northern breed so would more than likely be inconsistent off lead at best. I would not plan on having a small breed dog like that, with a tendency to run, off leash and would instead work on the other things. I had a Schipperke mix that was off leash 2x in his life - one he ran into a corn field, the 2nd time was on a long drag line and he went 40 feet to the car. I did tether him to another dog who was trusted off leash and that was all the freedom he could ever have. He didn't mind/know any different. Fenced yard.
It sounds like she is sensitive and trying to offer behaviors to you based on what you are doing - stop with the NIlif and instead do something to engage her, reward her, and tell her what to do. She's confused. She needs you to interact with her in a positive way, reinforcing what you want to see.
Check out Dr. Sophia Yin's website. She has people tether the dog to them, keeps it upbeat and uses the sit a lot.

Unsure of exact age, but her Gotcha Day is in April, so just about a year. She's spayed, but she did go through a full heat prior to spaying.
