Linda J. Page

Linda J. Page

Founder


Dr. Page earned a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from the Adler School of Professional Psychology (ASPP) in Chicago, Illinois after earning her Ph.D. at Princeton University. Most of her courses were delivered in Toronto at what was then called the Alfred Adler Institute of Ontario. After a three-year internship at the Rudolf Dreikurs Centre for Counselling and Education under the supervision of Larry Nisan, M.Ed., and Evelyn Wolff, M.D., she opened her own practice as a psychotherapist in 1981. She co-founded the Psychotherapy Institute of Toronto with Susan Rosenthal, M.D., in 1987 to train M.A. students and physicians in Adlerian psychotherapy. Because of her academic and graduate teaching background, she was invited to direct Chicago's M.A. program in Toronto, which she did from 1989 to 2006. During part of that time, she commuted to Chicago to teach as a member of ASPP's doctoral core faculty and to direct the Adler Centre for Gender and Cultural Studies. She founded Adler's Professional Coaching Certificate Program in 1998, an initiative that now has representatives in the United States, Europe and Central Asia.

Welcome to ADLER and the next phase of your career path! As I embark on my new journey as president, I will continue to be available to students on an as needed basis. We also have excellent staff such as the registrar and Dean of Students to manage the day-to-day issues of course selection and support. Outside of my role at ADLER, I am a registered Psychologist, and photographer, scuba diver and Master Certified Barbecue Judge.
