At this point, a rebuild would be the best option. It sounds like the problem has not progressed to the point of major damage internally, so rebuild would entail a set of clutches and seals along with a forward clutch piston and a converter flush.
Geberally, when I am working on transmissions over a few years old, I get a used one, and freshen it up with a kit, and then swap them out. This keeps the car from being disabled for the shortest time.
