Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

What you're describing is common to a restricted transmission filter. When you start it cold it can flow enough to create ample line pressure and the trans works ok. The longer the engine runs it will pull more debris into the filter from the fluid and pan, flow is restricted and line pressure drops. When the engine is shut off and it sits for a period some of the debris will settle back out of the fluid and the trans will engage again.

The issue could be excessive debris due to the failure of a clutch or geartrain component. The filter is internal in the transmission and requires the trans to be removed and opened up to replace it. You might try draining and refiling the fluid to see if that helps, if not then the trans is either going to need to be replaced or removed, disassembled and inspected/overhauled.
