You can get the output by updating the below codes on function.php

add_action( 'template_redirect', 'redirect_to_specific_page' );

function redirect_to_specific_page() {
    if ( is_page('slug') && ! is_user_logged_in() ) {
        wp_redirect( '', 301 );

Also you can use the page_id or page_title instated of slug on the above code. 

// When Page ID is 10 being displayed.
is_page( 10 );
// When the Page with a page_title of "Profile" is being displayed.
is_page( 'Profile' );
// When the Page with a page_name (slug) of "profile" is being displayed.
is_page( 'profile' );

You can redirect the page using following script codes on that specific page, if you have class name (logged-in) in the body tag. Many themes supports to add class name on body tag if they logged in.

if (document.body.classList.contains('logged-in')) {
 alert("Already Logged In");
} else {

If your theme not having this class name functionality then just check the link and follow the codes to add class name in body tag based on the user login.
