Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I am one of the Toyota / Lexus techs here.

It sounds like your idle air control (IAC) valve is sticking due to carbon build up which is common on this vehicle. I would start by performing a throttle body cleaning and upper induction service. Any shop can do this for around $90. If that does not clear up the issue, then the IAC valve will need to be replaced.
