Why is it having trouble moving in reverse?

Text:

My car has trouble moving in reverse. Whenever I have to back up, it seems like the gears are just not engaging fully or something like that. It's an automatic transmission. It's gotten so bad that when I park my car, I have to make sure that I don't have to reverse up a hill to get out. I almost have to push the gas pedal down all the way to back up even a small incline. Any ideas as too what might be causing this?
