Shifting to reverse gear problems

(1999 Chevrolet Malibu)
Recently when shifting into reverse it seems as if the emergency break is on and will not allow the vehicle to back up. Have been able to put in park and in drive gears and eventually back to reverse and can back up. Is this a transmission problem? What is my recourse? Estimate of cost?

The next step would be to have the transmission checked for proper operation. It may be an issue with the shifter, but more likely it's in the transmission, but the only way to know for sure is to have it diagnosed.
