First and the foremost thing.....don't lose hope....Good news-I know someone with your score who are currently doing residency in the U.S.
Now the tough part, You will have to work really hard to improve your CV. The recommendations you have will definitely help.

Focus on Step 2 now. Try and get a good score and after that try and improve your CV.

There are many ways o doing that

I second the opinion of drrishikasingh,

You do have chance in getting psychiatry residency.

Get a higher score in CK, pass the CS from first attempt, come to USA and do USCE in psychiatry with good LoRs and try to do some research/publications in psychiatry and am sure you'll make it.
