(Most likely) It will be a loose torque converter or flex plate or the flex plate cracked, if is just a loose converter you can fix it without too much problems otherwise you will have to take the gearbox out. The good news it will be cheap to fix if you do it yourself and not really that bad if a mechanic does it either since nothing expensive will be actually broken
