It could be the torque converter partially locking up. Low transmission fluid could cause this. So could a loose/missing internal filter, worn seals, or a worn pump.

I had a similar problem, went to a reputable trans shop and had them drop the pan on their suggestion. Filter had dropped, trans was serviced year prior, filter must've been defective. All is good now.
