Check to make sure the pistons in the valve body aren't sticking and the lock up solenoid is working properly would be the first and easiest port of call. If that don't remedy the problem then a reconditioned TC is what you'll need. Many in the past have said that it's the seal in the TC that leaks and bleeds off pressure so the clutch will slip or not engage at all but at your mileage it could be that or the clutch plates are very worn.
There's also the possibility of low line pressure but I'd expect if that were the case that other issues with gear changes would present themselves.
