Hey how are you,I will try to help you with this issue

I would drain fluid and check for any metal shavings in it, if clean, replace it and retest it ,if shavings found , it will need rebuild especially if the slippage started gradually and got worse and no visible leaks on the ground from transmission

if the slippage started suddenly then it could be a valve body , shifting solenoid ,tcm module , etc .. issue and you will need a gm tech II scanner to read the tcm module to retrieve faults and based on these faults we can pull up a pin point troubleshoot and be accurate

I would recommend that for sure ,you can post the faults code back here for me and i can help you further on it .

You are very welcome :)
