I own a 2006 Honda Civic 8th Gen 2.0s
I bought it 2nd hand and every time the car is cold it jerks when I shift from P to D/R
I also changed my ATF fluid last September.
Aside from that shifting/acceleration has no issues.

You need CVT fluid, not ATF fluid.

Use original Honda CVT fluid.
oops, my bad,

could be the previous owner drove too many miles with old ATF fluid. av911 is right, drain and fill multiple times. Could be wise to drive a month or 2 between each 'rinsing' operation. Takes some money for the fluid tho, but when it does eventually reduce your problem its cheaper than rebuild.
