Default problems when shifting between 2nd and 3rd gear

I have an automatic, 2002 wrx sedan.

When the car shifts from 2nd to 3rd gear, at around 3RPM...the RPMs shoot up to 4RPM, it's hard to describe what's happening. The shifting just isn't smooth.

the best way I can describe it is like when a beginner is learning how to drive a MT, and the transitions aren't smooth, and so when you engage the clutch, it puts the car on Neutral right, and then the engine revs up if you don't switch into gear smoothly enough...

that's what's happening to my car. I don't know how else to describe it.

fluid is fine. i have 86,000.

is the transmission controlled by a computer on the 2002 wrx? Or is it completely independent? perhaps the tranny is fine, just the computer?
