hard shifting

My transmission seems to only act up when i get heavy with gas pedal, shifts very harsh, seems to not shift when should stays in gear longer than i think it should than slams into gear, If i get off the interstate at 70 slow down to 15-20 and smash the gas to jump into traffic it slams into lower gear so hard it throws me back into the seat then shifts hard on up shift and over drive than it is fine. was getting on interstate and it began to shift put paused for few seconds and slamed into the next gear.. this sound like it could be like everyone else and need to replace the solenoid or 2? car sat for a few years
