Hi there. It sounds like the idle speed control motor could be struggling during a cold start. There could also be a vacuum leak that is allowing too much air into the intake during a cold start; cold starts require more fuel/ rich air/fuel ratio. When too much air enters the intake, the ratio can become too lean to maintain proper idle. Also, if the idle speed control is struggling or sticking, then this could present a problem as well. Sometimes cleaning the idle speed control motor will help, but it usually needs to be replaced eventually. Your Mechanic has several available technicians that can assist you with a car has a rough idle inspection.
